Rincón del Socorro is relaxed, spotless and friendly, particularly the guides - Ian, Omar and Lucas, whose gaucho horsemanship and knowledgeable conversation made our long ride into the heart of the wetlands fly by. The food was excellent, particularly the fruit and veg, all organic straight from the Socorro's own 'huerta'.

We went there for the nature, but at this price-tag you also expect first class service. The lodge is in the land belonging to the Iberá Conservation Project, probably one of the best conservation initiatives in the world. It was started by the late Douglas Tompkinson. We were lucky enough that him and his wife were actually there during our...

Dear Guests, We are sorry we couldn´t fulfill your expectations. People usually highlights the staff, its warmth and helfulness and we are really surprised you have felt so different.

My husband (an evolutionary biologist/ecologist/photographer) was in Heaven with all the flora and fauna in the area. Knowing about the problems in the Florida Everglades, it was a real treat to see what a conservationist like Tompkins could do. Unfortunately he died less than a week after our stay and we hope that his plans for the wetlands will continue...

The Estancia is tucked away between Mercedes and the Gaucho town of Carlos Pelligrini. The benefit is that you get to see real gauchos, amazing nature and true Argentinian hospitality. It is impeccably maintained and the meals served are freshly prepared using ingredients from the organic garden. If you are a fan of the documentary 180 South, it’s worth noting...

Getting there took some effort. But, as we were laying poolside below tens of screaming parrots, watching herds of ñandú and capybara grazing in the vast lawns and the cayman & bird-filled Esteros beyond, we soon realized this place was probably one of our favourites in Argentina

In the middle of solitary marshlands teeming with fauna and flora, but spoiled by luxury one didn´t expect, along with heartwarming friendliness of the staff, made our stay unforgettable. The guides were superb and there was a wide variation of activities from hikes, boat rides and horseback riding. The food was good, adapted to dietary requests.

The physical and philosophical setting of this luxury ‘safari’ lodge could not be finer. Within South America’s second and one of the world's most important wetlands, the Esteros del Iberá, and part of the save-the-world-wildlands brainchild of a generous person with an earth-vision and a big heart — Douglas Tompkins — the hosteria (lodge) and grounds are truly first class....

“Wi fi is only in the lobby. The location is excellent - in the middle of the preservation, but very hard to get too. Road conditions are very poor (they are working with the neighbors trying to improve it. You need a 4x4 to reach it and if is rainy or after a rain allocate plenty of time. A 2 hrs road might take 5.”
