We went to Gaiman by taxi from our cruise ship. After reading reviews on Trip Advisor, we expected a town with a Welsh feel to it - some buildings with Welsh character, Welsh flags and names, maybe gift shops too. But it was a total waste of a taxi fare. Our guess is that everything closed during COVID and little has re-opened. It is just a little run down town with nothing to see. We got there at 1pm and the only tea house, Ty Gwyn, didn't open till 2.30pm. There was nothing to do for 1.5 hours and not even a cafe to buy a sandwich. We were so disappointed!!
If a stop in Gaiman for welsh tea is tagged on to a tour, it would be OK. But don't bother to go there as an independent traveller.

Gaiman is a lovely small town with Welsh hertitage. I went to a tea house Ty Gwyn. They serve 6 different cakes , scons with butter, toasts with butter, sandwiches and 2 types of jam including unlimited British breakfast tea enough to avoid having dinner.

We enjoyed tea at one of the tea houses and then a wander around town, through the train tunnel and up to the viewpoint above the town.
It was very quiet around town, but hopefully things will pick up for them very soon.
Very enjoyable walk and very filling tea

This city and the area in general was settled in the 1850s by Welsh immigrants, and while a modern small town it still has a few cold structures and cultural attraction we saw as part of a cruise ship tour. Had afternoon tea at the Welsh Tea House and had a short city tour. Of US H iui storic note, there is a hotel in the city where Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid stayed around 1908 before traveling to Boliva.

Allow plenty of time in Gaiman especially if you are Welsh. The tourist office gave us a plan but we ran out of time. Museum fascinating with Welsh speaking curator. Gave lots of background and had visited North Wales. Settlement more successful than generally portrayed. Est. 5000 welsh speakers here. Welsh tea huge expect to take half home. Croeso arbebnig!

We had the most delicious tea and cakes in this town! We got a reservation at Ty Gwin which we loved. It’s a very sleepy town when there are no cruise tours and completely shuttered if in the morning so plan accordingly. Very sweet way to celebrate my birthday!

Just 80 km away from Puerto Madryn you’ll get to see a Welsh town in Argentina. Gaiman is famous for its Welsh tea, in which you’ll be able to taste a delicious assortment of different kinda of cake and bread. The atmosphere is truly cozy. Don’t miss it!

I took the tour because there was nothing else to do in the area if you are not driving. The only thing that I liked was the view of the river at sunset....amazing pics!

Interesting town. Tiny but with a proud Welsh connection. Lovely riverside walk, tea houses and first house built by Welsh settlers as well as a couple of small museums. One can get there easily by very regular and comfortable buses from Trelew and Puerto Madryn for just a few pesos.

Gaiman is the beating heart of the Welsh community in Eastern Patagonia. Spend at least a day here, talk to as many locals as possible and take in all the sights. My top list includes Siop Bara, where you can get coffee, beer and WIFI, Blasus, where you can buy a birthday cake and have a good chat, the two hotels, Plas y Coed and Ty Gwyn (both of which have excellent tea rooms and impeccable Welsh credentials), the Museum and its wizard curator, Fabio Gonzalez, the Tourist Office, with Welsh brochures, toilets and WIFI, the best bar, Mochyn Du, the best restaurant, Gwalia Lân, the two Bethel Chapels (ask in your hotel how to find someone to open them), the main square, with its Welsh Columbus monument and Alamo Sculpture, the cemetery just outside town and, especially, the School of Music, where all the choirs and other musicians rehearse.
