  • If you visitás Puerto Madryn don't also visit Florentino Ameghino dam. A beautiful place product of nature and a touch of the human hand. There are dams the Chubut River to produce electric power. Downstream of the dam there is a beautiful valley surrounded by high walls of Red stone. By slipping the emerald waters of this river, which flows into the Atlantic at the port of Rawson. Fly fishing lovers enjoy countless hours trying to capture the elusive trout arco iris and Browns that don't seem to abound, however, just be there, it is worthwhile. There is a campground with all amenities and more distant places where you can spend the day or install a tent. The only thing which tends to be not nice is people who go camping and has no better idea that listening to loud music, imposing their musical tastes on the rest. But fortunately that is not the case always. To reach it is necessary to have own mobility or hire a tour. I think that there is no transportation, and if any. It is very little.

  • It is a little far from the city but you can not miss it. The chubut River emerald green passing between two mountains of red rocks is a must-see landscape. If you want to spend the day there are a couple of camping and also house for rent per day. To eat is Green Valley complex which is excellent
