In addition to its natural wonders, Puerto Madryn boasts fascinating history, showcased in the local Welsh heritage and the nearby paleontological sites.
In a car, the city is easily accessible and provides a starting point for numerous scenic drives. One must-do car trip is to the Valdés Peninsula, a UNESCO World Heritage site located just a few hours north. Here, visitors can witness the breathtaking spectacle of the Southern Right Whale and a colony of Magellanic penguins.
