At Rincon del Socorro, you’ll venture out on early-morning or late afternoon wildlife viewing boat trips in the wetlands. After a morning outing, a barbecue lunch is served in a hut beside the boat dock. You may also have the opportunity to spend a full day exploring these fascinating marshes with excellent opportunities to photograph multicolored flowers, aquatic plants and the varied fauna: black caimans, which despite its antediluvian appearance are inoffensive to humans, roseate spoonbills, maguari stork, whistling herons, anhingas, marsh eagles, painted turtles, etc. If luck has its way, you may spot the rare marsh deer, a species in danger of extinction. In addition to the wildlife viewing, visit the Iberá Visitor Center to appreciate the amazing area as a whole – its interesting eco-system and enjoy a short walk to observe a howler monkeys community.
Other available activities include horseback riding through the estancia. The host – Leslie Cook – and his wife, Valeria, are horse trainers, and the riding operation is highly professional with a supply of excellent horses for all riding abilities, quality riding tack and guiding. Horseback riding is an integral part of the hosteria’s program, since the chances of seeing wildlife increase immensely on horseback rather than on foot.
Sadly day 13 is time to depart. Savor your last morning in the Marsh with a cup of coffee in the natural setting. You’ll be met at Rincon del Socorro and transferred to Posadas airport for your flight to Buenos Aires. On arrival at Aeroparque Domestic Airport, you’ll be met and transferred to Ezeiza International Airport for your onward flight home.
