    When you enter the Park you will give a brochure and the location. It is on the way to puerto Piramides, impossible to miss. It is a place very cute, which stay and watch the video who spend in the cinema that is. In addition to replicas of animals in the area and a whale skeleton. interesting.

    Excellent starting point of information and procurement. The staff are friendly and are very well informed to advise visitors. The small place is nicely decorated and with lot of information panels, exhibitions, etc. It also has an area for children. Finally, is a good first place where carry hot water to mate, buy some provision in the kiosk and go to the bathroom before starting the journey.
