  • Excellent place to enjoy a warm night. Area full of bars and restaurants, some with prices very wealthy.

  • I was surprised with this little piece of Punta. I was walking around town, without destination and I arrived at Porto, where he was awarded with the presence of wolves and sea lions that are close to the pier getting scraps of fish from fishermen who clean them right there. The port is very well structured, with beautiful boats and pleasant restaurants. I suggest take a ride over there, it's worth it!

  • The port offers a beautiful view of the sunset, walking along the waterfront is very nice and you can appreciate the beauty of the city. Also is good option go to jogging, running or riding bike.

  • Un lugar con vistas fantásticas! Beautiful views abound. You'll find small shops selling fresh caught fish, trinkets, and the like along the port. You'll see sea lions begging for fish. If you wait until sunrise or sunset, you'll see a real treat!
  • Great place for a walk. Check expensive boats and local fishermen. You can fish in specific places. Places to buy fresh food and restaurants. Recommended.
  • Excellent place for tourists, recommended going on a boat to "isla de lobos"
