  • Punta choros is an ideal place to rest, many in nature. There are several kiosks for rich Seafood lunch. From punta choros taken boats to go to island Lady.

  • The town itself is not very pretty, but must pass if or if out there to get to the island, in the way we find foxes and guanacos, which already are accustomed to tourists and posing for photos, already in the dock there are restaurants with typical food from the sea. The wonderful island, where you can see various birds, penguins, sea lions, etc... too bad that that day I did not see dolphins :(

  • It is a far away town but with excellent beaches, very private, rich sand and rich sea. At the Cove you can eat rich and cheap (Nothing sophisticated) and you can hire tours to visit Islands! You have to go!

  • It is a very picturesque village. It is small but on the premises you can find everything on sale. Its main attraction is the ride to isla damas, where you can see penguins, dolphins and if you're lucky, whales. It is a very good place to go to relax and get out of the noisy city.
