Visit Puerto Piramides for a range of ecotourism experiences in a protected coastal area, designated as a World Heritage Site for its ecological diversity. One of the premier whale-watching environments in the world, the bay was visited in 1972 by legendary oceanographer Jacques Cousteau, who studied the breeding patterns of right whales in the area. The whales, along with sea lions and Magellan penguins, can be spotted on a range of tours around the bay, on land and off. A small town of 500 people provides services for visitors to the reserve, with boat tours, snorkeling trips, and hikes around the coastal dunes starting and ending in the settlement.

    This year we went for the fourth time. For the first time without children. And we confirmed our decision to stay there and not in Puerto Madryn, as the majority of the people. We live on the outskirts of Buenos Aires and go to enjoy nature and the simple life. This time we went 8 days. There is no way to enjoy full whales, elephant seals, penguins, the sounds of the sea, sea lions... If one has to do 90kms ida + 90 km trip from Madryn, paying access (220 per person per day) without running much because there are many guanacos jumping the fences and you can cross. Each trip to pyramids is unforgettable. But, the truth have to know what you will find: as the vast majority of the people staying at Madryn, there are many restaurants which do not open at night. At night there is a soul. Close to the ACA. But it is a pleasure to be able to return very well maintained gravel roads, at sunset, which is the time that many animals are to leave. And watch them again and again. Always something different. There is an ATM LINK, a rural hospital, regional shops, a here, several restaurants. There is no pharmacy. And almost everything (so I could see, everything but the watching enterprise) is in cash. It is a safe re place, where an important thing to enjoy, as well as take into account the issue of the card, is if or ask at the information centre the schedules of the tides, which are not the same in different points of interest : for the most part (lobería, Doradillo, Punta Pardelas, etc), you should go with high tide because it is the way of seeing the whales more closely. And sea lions move: at low tide, the sea is very down the ravine and they may not be uploaded, so they are "pulled".

Where to stay in Puerto Piramides

A small village consisting of two streets, Puerto Piramides offers limited options, so it's a good idea to reserve well in advance of your visit. You can choose between several hostels, rental apartment properties, and mid-range hotels with a decent selection of modern amenities. If you come here to experience the nature and whale-watch, or just wish to sleep under the stars, consider staying at a designated campground.
