#4 of 8 in Parks in Puerto Madryn
Gain a greater understanding of the sea and the creatures that live within it when you visit Ecocentro. Walk into the cool building and begin the tour by entering a whale's mouth (or a simulation of one, anyway). The center engages both adults and children with its interactive exhibits, such as whale songs where you actually feel the vibrations. Many displays include signage with informative facts translated into English. The center also has educational games for children and videos of marine life.

  • A special place to visit the days in which you can not enjoy beach. The best thing is to enter a whale.

  • Good place to learn a little more about the fauna and flora of Puerto Madryn and surroundings. Excellent view from the lookout. The bar is expensive.

  • Small but interesting museum. 1 hour
  • Nice interactive experience. Lots of info for those interested in sealife and ecology. You are actually standing on prehistoric sea bottom! ( Museum built on it)
  • Nice place with a short sensory experience of being inside a whale, and some documentaries about the fauna around peninsula Valdés.
  • Very good
  • Well. Nice and spacious. A place to relax. You have a beautiful view from the lighthouse. The best, the sensory area of the whales and live animals. The staff is attentive and friendly. I thought it was rather expensive for the amount of attractions that shows ($180 x person, January 2018).
