Why now is the best time to visit Puerto Madryn

Puerto Madryn offers a wide range of alternatives to visit. And this season, the options are many.


Tucked away in a protected bay in northern Patagonia, Puerto Madrynwas founded, in 1865, by 150 Welsh immigrants who fled the economic difficulties of Britain's Industrial Revolution. Today it is a thriving city that has much to offer to the visitor.

The area around Puerto Madryn is famous for its diverse wildlife. The Punta Loma Reserve, just 17 km from the city, is the best place to see the sea lions with a hair basking in the sun.
