Overview: Situated snugly in a well-protected bay of the Golfo Nuevo, Puerto Madryn is the Chubut Province’s natural access point for the plains of Patagonia. Its major draw is the proximity to the Valdés Peninsula, the world’s most important wildlife reserve. Visitors endure long drives to visit this unique wildlife sanctuary, ideal for close-up watching of elephant seals, sea lions, Magellanic penguins and whales.
