The next step was our expedition into the Ibera Wetlands (Rincon del Socorro). Getting there was an adventure in itself. Cecilia, our driver and guide picked us up and made the 4 hour car journey along some very challenging roads fly by. Her English was very good indeed and we really enjoyed her company and her local knowledge made the trip come alive. Rincon del Socorro is certainly a unique place, very tranquil and peaceful and it was super to relax and enjoy the scenery, food and wildlife. You may think you are in the middle of nowhere but there is plenty to keep you on the go - boat trips on the lagoon, horseriding through the estancia grounds which was great fun, spotting tapir, capybara, marsh deer and loads of different birds. Even the creepy crawlies are good to see!! Please pass on to others how special the night sky is here – on clear nights it is indescribably beautiful.

The highlight (of the trip) was probably Rincon del Socorro and the Ibera wetland (great guides, birds, exotic animals, and food etc).

Estancia Rincon del Socorro is an amazing location and stumbling over capybaras and armadillos on our way back to the room was an unforgettable experience. We understand it has recently (November) changed management in preparation for the land to be handed over to the national park service. The guides were all new, young, enthusiastic and knowledgeable and the wildlife was stunning. Meals were very tasty but no choice and the service was slow; I went to bed the final night after waiting half an hour in vain for someone to turn up to accept my payment :) Not a big deal, and they were happy to take payment in the morning but I got the impression their in-house staff were overworked.

Rincon was my favourite, a sublime place which I understand is now being handed back to the Argentine govt, fingers crossed they don’t cock it up.

Very good stay here. Made to feel very welcome. Guide for trips out very good. Lots of birds, so we were happy. I do feel you could have warned us that the road transfer from Posada to Rincon was quite so long and arduous! You could have mentioned the fly-in option from Posadas, although I accept it was probably expensive. Also Ricon was the only "hot" place with no a/c, which surprised us a little. Ceiling fan, but very difficult to sleep.
