Peninsula Valdez is the most amazing place and you must go. The hotel is basic but just perfect for the surroundings. Leo our guide was great and his services were part of the hotel package. I can not recommend enough.

By far the best place for sea elephants on the Peninsula! But come before 16:30 otherwise you can’t fully use the amenities and come closer to the animals. Or consider staying jn their hotel and use it in the evening as well.

Great short walk out to the lighthouse with wind whistling and sea birds circling. Walk out among the rocks on the shoreline. Did not go inside lighthouse. Good cafe nearby. Bracing!

Nice small lighthouse. Still in use. Has details of the history and building it around it. Views are spectacular towards the sea and inlands.

We were attracted by the romanticism of staying in a hotel with a lighthouse on the end of a peninsular. We were certainly not disappointed. First the accommodation; the rooms we stayed in were in what had been the station school a white washed building...More

Peninsula valdes is penguins, whales, birds, but also see elephants. Near Punta Delgada there is at least one large colony, at it is a great visit. Make sure you have the fuel tank full, distances are deceptive on the map. Just drive from Puerto Piramides...More
