You have arrived to isthmus Carlos Ameghino, from where you can watch Golfo San José and Golfo Nuevo. Puerto Pirámides
is a stopover for tourists on their way to Península Valdés
that inserts you in the magic of Patagonian steppe contrasting with the water of the Atlantic that breaks against the rocks and cliffs on the coast.
This narrow strip of land 35 km. long, with its arid soil and the deepest salt marshes in South America, possesses a very important natural resource of international value: the right whale. The mating and birth of these huge mammals is seen every year from June to December. Killer whales are more frequently seen between February and May, while dolphins are seen all year round.
Puerto Pirámides is a beach resort frequented by lovers of nature, and will provide an unforgettable experience to anyone who travels in the area.
Its beaches with their gentle slopes are protected by cliffs resembling pyramids, where there are fossilized invertebrates of more than 9 million years.
