Estancia Rincon del Socorro

about Estancia Rincon del Socorro, Corrientes

This former cattle ranch has been lovingly converted into an eco-estancia within a spectacular nature reserve. Surrounded by vast unspoilt wetlands, grasslands and gallery forest, this is an adventurous and untouched land to explore in Argentina.

Valeria and Leslie, the owners, have taken pride in making the hotel a home away from home, providing exceptionally personalised service in a place absolutely brimming with character.

Estancia Rincon del Socorro detail

Style

A character-full house with friendly and luxurious accommodation

Setting

Rincon del Socorro is located on the banks of the wetlands of Corrientes, the Ibera Marshes and expands over 12,000 hectares of northern Argentina. You can fly direct from Iguazu, which takes about 2 hours.

Accommodation & Facilities

There are 6 rooms in the main house as well as three bungalows, each featuring its own unique design. All accommodation is en-suite and tastefully decorated using natural colours and materials. The main house is quite traditional, featuring an 1896 Spanish style, a long white building with a red zinc roof. The 6 rooms all come off a long veranda and overlook the pool to the back. The bungalows are built using adobe walls and have thatched roofs; these were actually a part of the main farm building and are about 50 metres from the main house.

There is a nice outdoor pool (unheated so best in the summer) and some beautiful gardens, as well as a library, dining room, games room (for children) and a quincho (Argentinean BBQ).

Dining

Fruit and vegetables are harvested from their organic garden just before preparing food and all pastas and breads are homemade. Cuisine is very tasty and healthy.

Activities

There are four different habitats here making this an excellent spot for bird watching, including a few endangered species that have taken refuge here. You can also embark on boat trips, horse riding, night safaris and trips to the fascinating Ibera Lagoon to spot the caimans, monkeys and capybaras. You will also have the chance to watch gauchos at work, try fly-fishing or go for a bike ride.

Child Policy

Children are welcome and they will love exploring the grounds.
