Why now is the best time to visit Puerto Madryn
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.
You can discover much more about the natural world at the Ecocentro, an interactive science centre full of swimming pools, attractive exhibits and panoramic views of the sea. For outdoor adventurers and wildlife lovers, Puerto Madryn offers an exciting and immersive escape.
Sea and Beach
From the pier, in the center of the city, Madryn offers a beach coastline ideal for walking, jogging or spending the day in front of the sea without waves of the Gulf Nuevo. Also, along the coast, a wide promenade is transformed into an ideal circuit for cycling, skateboarding or rollers.
The city has 7 spas and a municipal parador offers free shows and dance classes every summer. It also has beach volleyball courts and every Saturday in January and February the tourist will be able to visit “Edible Madryn” a walk of flavors in the Playón Recreativo entrance to the Piedra Buena Pier. It is an excellent proposal where local entrepreneurs who offer a great variety of gastronomy together with local artists, admission is free and free.
In many of the paradores there are wind and kite surfing classes, kayaking, board rental and stand up paddle and yoga classes, diving baptisms and snorkeling with sea lions in Punta Loma.
