One of our favourite stops on our full day tour of the Valdes Peninsula. Puerto Piramides is home to loads of sea lions who are just too much fun to watch! Very noisy and playful. Really neat!

Good location for visiting the peninsula and for arranging outings like kayaking. Some good restaurants and at least one good hotel. Not scenic, but pleasant.

We debated whether to stay in this tiny town or the "usual" tourist spot of Puerto Madryn. Chose Puerto Piramides and so glad we did! We loved being close to the wildlife and this cozy little town. You can easily walk to see the sea...More
