  • This fishing village is very quiet and away from civilization, from here depart the boats to isla damas, so if you find yourself in punta choros you must visit isla damas.

  • It is the starting point to visit the island Lady and offers a good contact with the nature. Shall be taken into account that in case of bad weather the boats do not cross to the Islands, so you may want to find out about the weather. The restaurant offers an acceptable food, often included in the package.

  • 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.
