One of the most attractive
things about these animals, is
their shape and big size.
However, we think, their
most attractive thing is their
social behaviour. In
December they start coming
to the coast to change their
skin and fur and they stay for
around 40 days without
eating anything. During this
time, they don’t distribute
themselves in female groups
with only one male, they
move around in males,
females and babies groups.
In Patagonia we find 2 types of penguins, the
“Magallanes” penguin and the “penacho amarillo”
penguin. They’re fast swimmers and they dive
deeper than other aquatic birds.

In summer, we wear light clothes, and the
temperature can rise from 35°C to 40° easily, but
you should always carry a jacket, sweater or
sweatshirt with you, just in case, because at night it
gets a bit cold. Since we are near the coast, it’s never
snowy here in winter.There is a lot of wind, though, so
you should bring a good jacket, appropiate shoes and
a cap. In Puerto Madryn, during the winter, many
sports and cultural events are organised, where the
tourists can hang out with the residents and get to
know them better.
Winter is also a great season for the visitor to meet the
undersea world, enjoying the company of a professional
diver. You can go at night, too.
During the day, ecotourism and animal observation are the
main activity, but you can also go to the beach, visit the
Ecocentro or do aquatic sports.
During the night you can go to the casino,to the
clubs or you can enjoy night shows.
