Puerto Madryn

(4/5 based on 8,500+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: beaches, wildlife areas, historic sites
Whales and penguins frolic in the waters of Puerto Madryn, one of Argentine Patagonia's most important port cities. Founded by immigrants in the 19th century, the city of nearly 95,000 was named after the estate of a 19th-century nobleman from Wales. Local industries include aluminum production and fishing, while tourism in Puerto Madryn consists largely of whale-watching and onward travel to Peninsula Valdes. Although the city's temperatures rival those of Buenos Aires during summer, it's not known as a beach destination. Take stress off the schedule by using our Argentina travel itinerary planner.
