Valdes - Rob van Praat


After we landed at the airport of Trelew we arrived in Patagonia. We immediately hopped on a van with a tour guide that drove us toPunta Tombo where we saw many penguins and some guanaco's.

Afterwards we went back to our very basic hotel in Puerto Madryn.

The next day we were picked up from the hotel and drove to the Valdes Peninsula. Our first stop was Puerto PirĂ¡mides. Here we went onto a small boat to do some whale watching. It wasn't the best season, but we did we a mother and child swimming around our boat. But they weren't very active.

The second and last stop was at Punta Delgada. We had lunch and lost the group...but when reconvened we went to see elephant seals.

Afterwards we were dropped back at the hotel. For dinner we went to the number 1 restaurant according to Tripadvisor...Cantino El Nautico. It was the worst (sea) food we ever had!
