DESCRIPTION

Seeing hundreds of species of birds is an incredible show to see, along with alligators, marsh dears and capybaras, all of them being nearly extinct species. The colors of the sky give a final touch to the enchantment of the place.
Being a guest in Rincon del Socorro is a way of being a part of the ambitious project that the CONSERVATION LAND TRUST has proposed and carries through with undeniable success.

Day 2: Iberá Wetlands – Boat trip to the Wetlands.
After breakfast we depart the estancia and drive towards the Laguna Iberá. Birdwatching and photograph opportunities will oblige for many stops on the road. In the lake, Papyrus and cattalist, water lilies & water hyacinths host a number of reptiles, capybaras (the world’s largest rodent), marsh deers, yellow anaconda and two species of caiman. Return to the lodge for dinner. Night safaris after dinner looking for owls & the Scissor- tail nightjar.
Day 3: Iberá Wetlands – Savanna, Wetlands, "Acacias" woodlands & Atlantic Rain Forest.

Riding and biking trips can be organized at the estancia, ideal way to explore the woods and savannas. Return for drinks & sundowners at the lodge.
Day 4: Departure to Posadas, Corrientes OR Resistencia airport - Private transfer
Before Breakfast, only meters away from the lodge, we have a wonderful man made lake, used in the days of cattle ranching for watering cattle, great fun is to enjoy watching and listening to the cackle of the large community of white egrets getting ready to set off on their commute to the wetlands, for their daily feasts.
Mid-morning check out. And private transfer to the airport to continue with your itinerary.

TESTIMONIALS

Eureka Travel was the perfect agency for our recent honeymoon to South America.

My wife and I had never been to South America, and neither of us speak Spanish. Ailen was exceptionally helpful and patient, and mapped out the perfect trip for us. It was a perfect blend of peaceful serenity and cultural adventure. Ailen was attentive without being invasive, and made us feel completely at ease, so we could relax and enjoy ourselves and each other.

Cecelia made the experience very personal, and showed us great hospitality.

One of the most meaningful parts of our honeymoon was being invited to an authentic Patagonia Asado dinner in a family's home. We were honored to be included and made to feel like family.

We asked Eureka Travel to help us plan a trip to Chile for our daughter. We adopted her at 4 months and thought she would enjoy getting in touch with her culture. The trip was everything we wanted. We loved the activities and the people of Chile.

Amazing 4 month trip to Argentina and Chile
We are a recently retired couple who just returned from a 4 month trip to Chile and Argentina. Sometimes we joined organized tours but we mostly did independent travelling. Eureka Travel offered us excellent advise with planning and kept us on budget. Everything ran seamlessly during these 120 days: the many flights, the transfers, the hotels and the excursions went off with absolutely no problems. Furthermore, they kept in touch with us at every leg of our journey. I truly believe that Analia\'s and Cecilia\'s personal touch made a very big difference to the success of our travel experience. I highly recommend them for any travel services to South America.
