After crossing the Río de la Plata, I arrived in the argentinian capital city. Buenos Aires is a large city with many different neighbourhoods to see, and even natural areas in the city. There are other charming towns close to it, like Tigre for example.

After having spent one month in Buenos Aires, I resumed my way to the south. Following a recommendation for its amazing landscapes, I went to Sierra de la Ventana. Indeed, it is very different from the city. The village is surrounded by yellow hills due to dry grass in summer. It is much greener in winter.

Bahia Blanca is a small town with beautiful places. Parks, statues, churches,... Nothing is missing, but something to differenciate it from other towns...

Viedma, Carmen de Patagones - Entrance in Argentinian Patagonia

Viedma, Carmen de Patagones - Entrance in Argentinian Patagonia

16 photos

We are in the gate of Argentinian Patagonia. Carmen de Patagones is in the south of the province of Buenos Aires, and Viedma, in the north of the province of Río Negro, the most northern province of the east coast of Patagonia. The Río Negro river is the natural border between both towns and both provinces.

Because of the lack of cheap accommodation, people travelling on a budget can't stay too long. Fortunately, the towns are small enough and you don't need to stay longer.

Las Grutas is a town next to the Ocean. The beaches are it's main appeal. It will please the vacacioners looking for idleness in the sun. However, the small budgets won't stay too much. The accomodation isn't very cheap...

Puerto Madryn is a beautiful village on the side of the ocean. The prices are much more affordables than in Las Grutas.

Even if the village itself has beautiful places to visit, its interest is more outside. You can watch the wales in the Valdés Peninsula (Unfortunately, I wasn't there in the right time) and the Punta Tombo National Park is crowded by penguins.

Trelew - Patagonia without tourism

Trelew is a small town close to Puerto Madryn. Tourism is limited, and to be honnest, the town is beautiful but there is little to see, and everything is seen in a few time.

Punta Tombo - Natural reserve of Magellanic penguins

Punta Tombo - Natural reserve of Magellanic penguins

57 photos

The Punta Tombo National Reserve is the biggest Magellanic penguins colony of the continent. There are approximately one million individuals.

We can find rheas, a kind of ostrich living in Patagonia, and Guanacos, a kind of wild lama as well. But you will have other opportunities to see them if you continue your trip in Patagonia.

To go to Punta Tombo, there are two solutions: You can buy a touristic tour, but it's very expensive. You can rent a car as well, which is the same price if you are alone, but the price can be shared. The best thing to do is making a group of 4 or 5 persons.
To go to Punta Tombo, the best is to stay in Puerto Madryn and to rent a car from there after having made a group to share the cost. If you don't need to make a group, you can stay in Trelew as well, which is closer, but les frequented.

Comodoro Rivadavia and Rada Tilly - See the wolffishes... from far away

Comodoro Rivadavia and Rada Tilly - See the wolffishes... from far away

15 photos

Rada Tilly is a small seaside village. I've got recommendation for its park where we can see wolffishes. Comodoro Rivadavia is a larger town close to it.

The park is on the top of the Punta del Marqués cape. It's easy to walk there from Rada Tilly admiring the beautiful landscape. The wolffished are on the bottom of the cape. They lend you field glasses when you pay the entrance to be able to see something. One have small impression of being duped, especially since we can see wolffished very close for free in any fishermen village.

There is no hostel. So you will have to choose a hotel with a private room, which limits choices for small budgets.
There are very few accommodations in Rada Tilly. Finding a hotel in Comodoro Rivadavia is simpler.
