Caridad, the second lodge on the ranch, sits on the banks of the Corcovado River with the snow capped Andes Mountains as a backdrop. Caridad has six bedrooms, spacious bathrooms and offers beautiful views of the surrounding river and countryside
Estancia Tecka provides what no other ranch in Argentina can, 96 miles of private trout water. The Corcovado winds through the property on its way to the Pacific Ocean and is home to Rainbow, Brown and Brook Trout.
This larger river is fished mainly from drift boats while some wading is done in freestone flats and banks.The smaller spring creek, Rio Tecka, is fished delicately from the banks with various dry fly patterns and produces exciting strikes and large fish. Additional spring creeks are found throughout the property and provide the ultimate test of skill for any angler. You can find some lagoons with great fish as well. With its varying landscape and diverse rivers this ranch is the ultimate Patagonia trout fishing experience
