The unique habitat of Argentina’s eastern coastline attracts hundreds of fascinating species year-round. For birdwatchers, this is heaven. Penguins, steamer ducks, skuas, cormorants, petrels, terns, various waders and the unmistakable rhea are all present alongside other wildlife including armadillo, mara, guanaco, skunk and grey fox. If you are lucky, orca and other dolphin species can be seen our to sea and the coastline is speckled with sealions lazing in the sun.
Aside from the fantastic wildlife watching opportunities, guests can enjoy kayaking alongside the stunning white sand beaches or horse riding through the pampas. It is possible to hire mountain bikes, visit a traditional working estancia (farm) or even take a day trip to the nearby petrified forest. Rooms here are individual chalet buildings, with simple interiors and perfect locations – right next to the beach, and with panoramic views.
There is no phone signal, little wifi access and the electricity is limited. Delicious homemade meals are served from the main house, which also offers guests a place to relax and observe the beautiful unspoilt surroundings and colourful sunsets.
