Lovely area, saw whales, sea lions, elephant seals, and other wildlife (mara, owls, etc.) Not crowded, seems still unspoiled/not too developed. Many gravel roads.

We went to Peninsula Valdes, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The flight from Buenos Aires to Trelew took 2 hrs. It’s best to rent a car to move around Peninsula Valdes. From Trelew to Puerto Piramides, a small village in Peninsula Valdes where there are...More

Very long day and bumpy bus ride, but overall a delightful experience. Don't expect lush growth as this part of Patagonia is more desert with few trees and little vegetation. Our guide, Paula, was a wealth of information! Seeing the Magellan penguins up close was...More
