PATAGONIA ARGENTINA. THIRD PART: PENÍNSULA OF VALDÉS AND PUNTA TOMBO

It is worth leaving the mountains of Andean Patagonia to make an incursion into the steppe ecosystem in this coastal area of Chubut. It is a paradise of wildlife.

Península of Valdés

The Valdés Peninsula is a World Heritage Site, among other things because it welcomes the largest breeding population of southern right whales in the world. In addition, you can spot orcas, dolphins, sea lions, elephant seals, armadillos, penguins (of Magellan), cormorants, martinetas and a great variety of birds. The peninsula is huge and spectacular. You do not have time to see it all in one day! You can stay in the peninsula itself (the only population is Puerto Pirámides), or in Puerto Madryn, (outside and cheaper).

Punta Tombo

Punta Tombo, on the other hand, is a wildlife reserve that will give you the opportunity to see thousands of penguins (of Magellan, too), less than a hand's breadth. You can watch them in great detail (wandering, resting or swimming), in addition to learning interesting data on the ecology of the species (interpretation center at the entrance). You can not miss this excursion in the Patagonian steppe... There should not be many places in the world where guanacos (camelids) and penguins live together in the same space.
