  • Not be really if that is their habitat, but the attraction sees them in poor condition is not inevitable it is more they must be hundreds of guys going to take photos see the fishing boats and the wolves calling and screaming for food worth the piena go

  • This experience is truly a beauty, reach the end of the South Jetty, visit the Christ, see fishermen enjoy this place and be surrounded by the waters of the sea, is a charm. Don't forget to visit this place.

  • I liked. This cute to go with guys. Tour short but good. More posters would miss with info about the animals and that clean more. The poor Lions sleep about the trash

  • Nice place to bring kids, no more than 10 minutes because there is not much place to stop. Only accessible with car

  • It is always nice to see sea lions. Pity cared little that is the zone, there is enough trash on the beach.

  • A way of seeing different sea lions. They are close and you can feel how they are. Non-virtual reality. I imagine that in the future the authorities of Mar del Plata sedated account of the potential that has the reserve and will adapt the place into tourism and visitors. A good posters would come more than good and would provide information necessary for the non-expert eye.

  • It is very easy to reach! If you are to the bottom to see the waves, careful with the car, because it is filled with salt water
