Rincon del Socorro stay comprises 12,000 hectares and is located within the Ibera Wetlands. It has historically been managed as a stay of livestock production until 1999, when it was acquired by The Conservation Land Trust (CLT), which has since been dedicated to protecting the environment through a team of biologists and veterinarians to develop different restoration projects and reintroduction of fauna. As a tourist enterprise, we focus on providing our guests a greater understanding of the local ecosystem and a greater appreciation of the importance of the role played by each of its natural environment and its conservation.
The house, our services and our rooms
The main house, built in 1896 by the founders of stay has been transformed and refurbished to serve today's inn. Built in classic Spanish style, the house has been completely renovated respecting the original architectural line. You can still see the interesting and original designs of this renowned house.
Guests can walk among noble trees planted in the early twentieth century, providing essential shade of this subtropical climate and, thanks to the recent restoration work, enjoy a wide collection of native plants and other classics such as azaleas and roses. The small lake next to the lodge offers an ongoing spectacle of wildlife, with capybaras, alligators friendly and thirty species of birds in residence.
Our rooms are a reflection of our personal philosophy on diversity in all things. Each room is designed and decorated in a unique way, according to their shape and location. No two rooms are alike. Our guests will be surprised with objects such as historical maps, stuffed animals and wild atypical paintings.
