The weather was perfect and the penguins plentiful. they walk around you not afraid to be close which makes for great pictures. watching them in their own environment was so enjoyable, I would definitely make a point of visiting here.

This place is absolutely amazing, a natural preserve for penguins. So happy we survived the long bus ride out to see this wonderful place. The amount of penguins is mind blowing, they are every where; waddling, chirping, swimming, mating, eating, pooping and sleeping. I just...More

Its a long boring drive here from Puerto Madryn but worth it to see the huge colony of penguins.They are so well protected that they are totally unafraid of humans and toddle among the tourists. A great experience .
