My visit there was one of the most beautiful trip. I felt the magic of nature, animals and ocean. I recommend this place because it could fill your heart and soul with more positive energy.

Very nice to do on a day tour. Landscapes are beautiful. In summer you will only see penguins, sea lions and sea elephants but no whales. Of course Guanancos are everywhere :).
