This is THE place to spot penguins. And indeed, they are unmissable as they are all over the place. Penguins come to the area to nestle and they are the striking majority, outnumbering humans. It is a fun place to witness incredible wildlife as penguins run about as if visitors were not around!

There were an insane amount of penguins! Apparently I visited right before mating season. The males penguins looked really bored ;)

Amazing. Camelids walking amongst scores of penguins in a desert. Add maras and elephant seals to the equation, and you have all of God's creatures jumbled up into a jigsaw puzzle that only makes sense to Darwin. Love this place. Amazing beautiful and utterly fascinating.

Esta es EL lugar donde cada año miles de Pingüinos de Magallanes llegan a tener sus crías. Es una zona de reproducción y por lo tanto se encuentra protegida. Como uno literalmente puede caminar entre sus simpáticos habitantes y ver hasta sus nidos con huevos, es imperativo ser consciente y no dañar el lugar. En general desde Puerto Madryn o Trelew se ofrecen toures para llegar a la reserva aunque es realmente sencillo llegar en automóvil particular.
