  • Beautiful place of Chubut. He is accessible by national route 3, if it is traveling from South to North, once past Uzcudum, a few km detour to the left, it is a road of about 78 km in very good condition. Also accessed by route 25 (if traveling from Trelew or Madryn this is the best choice) which is completely paved. Once in the town you can enjoy the scenery, a mix of Rocky Mountains and vegetation as there are no other parts of the province. It is ideal to spend some days of tranquility or to spend a pleasant evening away from the routine. There is much to be done, and less out of season, but it is a place that must be known.
