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.

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.

TESTIMONIALS

Isabel M. and family
I cannot express how pleased I am with Eureka Travel. As I was developing the plans for the trip, they were helpful with suggestions and accommodated all my requests. The transportation to and from airport, hotel, tours was excellent. The guides were very, very good. The lunch and dinner provided w/tour were excellent. Your help made our trip a wonderful experience. Also, when I was unable to call the local contacts (b/c my inability to get country codes,etc figured out) I could always email/call directly to your U.S. office for assistance. you helped solve any problems right away. Will definitely use Eureka Travel again when we return to Peru.

Did everything I needed on a short timeline
I panicked when I realized my trip to Chile was less than 60 days out and I had not booked anything other than the flights. Eureka was patient and helpful at every step along the way to get it done. I was able to communicate some cost issues to them and
they gave me options. They took my general outline and turned it into a wonderful, if not jam-packed, trip. Though much of the local service was provided by a third party, I knew exactly what to expect and there were no surprises in costs or service. I would
happily recommend Eureka\'s team for any South American travel you have planned.

Rachel traveled to CHile in FEBRUARY 2014

Thank you Ailen, Analia, Cecilia, for helping my family get to see such wonderful things in Chile!

Frank & family traveled to Chile-Atacama & Easter Island in August 2016
Daniel Gup
We had excellent travel advice in a timely manner. Analia from the travel company was very helpful and on top of the details of our trip which involved several flights, car rentals, hotels etc.

Patagonia was amazing. Salta and the northwest was also wonderful. We also really enjoyed Cordoba especially since our daughter had studied there.
