I have to admit, if I hadn’t been heading to Puerto Madryn to meet someone, I wouldn’t have gone their at all. And after being there, I wouldn’t recommend anyone go out of their way to visit. Yes, there’s a great penguin colony nearby, but there are penguin colonies in other parts of the continent near much nicer places. Puerto Madryn is like a washed up, dilapidated old English seaside resort… without the cosy pubs. Seriously, unless you have to, don’t bother.
