Puerto Madryn is beautiful, you have a great warm weather (in the southern hemisphere's summertime), and you get amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean from top cliffs. Given its proximity to colder weather you can also see wild animals as is the case of for a huge concentration of Sea Lions. You can observe them from atop and you can... More

Went as part of a tour, snorkeling not included, didn't see how you would do this. The view from the cliffs wad ok for a while, limited walking - certainly not worth going a long way out of the way unless you've never seen sea lions before - fun to watch them playing

We cycled here which on reflection wasn't the best idea. Its only 17km out of Puerto Madryn but about half of that is on a gravel road that is much better suited to quad bikes than bicycles. There's also quite a lot of traffic on the road and every time a car goes past it blows up great swarms of... More

We arrived at the site as part of a two hour (or so) 4x4 tour on the outskirts of Puerto Madryn. Riding along dirt roads, you venture off into REAL dirt roads... More

Awesome experience! Snorkeling with sea lions was awesome! Just as a quick comment, if you have never scuba-dived, do not make this your first scuba-diving experience. Stick to snorkeling!

As soon as we got off the car, the "ranger" approached us to welcome us and explain what we would see... The place is spotless nature and very emotional.
