Went to Gaiman on route to airport to kill time really- nothing like Wales!!! We drove around and found a place by luck where Princess Diana visited in 1995 (see pictures). Did not go in the house as you had to buy tea and cakes...More

Gaimin is a cute town but a long way from Puerto Madryn. The Welsh settled this area and the town still promotes its heritage, teaching the language in the schools. It's not an easy language to learn.

We went there as part of a tour to Punto Tombo. There is really absolutely nothing to see there and you will just lose one hour waiting. There is just one place (Ty Gwyn) that serves Welsh tea and cake... I would really advise to...More

We went there hopping to get some of the Welsh culture, however we got none. Architecture was in no way representative, even the "First House" was rather small and less than impressive. There are literally just a couple of restaurants where most were closed. Only...More

We visited here on a Sunday afternoon, it is a small town with a nice community feel to it. There are a lot of people out and about. Not much is open on Sunday. In our perception the link to Wales is particularily evident. If...More

There are places that charge to take a tour of this town; don't fall for it. We had a rental car and thought to drop by as poor weather prevented us from going other places; even by those standards we were disappointed. There was not...More

The town Gaiman for me is not really reflecting much about Wales and real Welsh customs. I have been at least 30+ times in Wales over the past 40 years. The Welsh flag alone is not sufficient!! There is really not much to see in...More
