  • It is a must because this at the entrance, there are bathrooms in very good condition and the most important for independent visitors which can be consulted to the guardian fauna in relation to the number of animals in the three main points of the peninsula, so if you can not visit all three on the same day, you can choose which is the more suitable for that time.

  • If you're visiting Puerto Pirámides, Punta Delgada or any area of the natural area of Peninsula Valdés, please do not hesitate to spend a while to visit the Itsmo Ameghino visitor centre. If you dare, worth also climb to the vantage point and take some panoramic photos of the bird island.

  • The truth that is a nice place, good parking, good bathrooms and a place to learn about the fauna of the place, with a small cinema and fossil whales and orcas. Paragraph to part for the viewpoint, very good view of the isthmus, and the immensity of our sea. VERY GOOD.
