Puerto Madryn was founded by 150 Welsh immigrants in 1865, and is the largest community in Welsh Patagonia. Although today much of its Welsh character has been lost, its museums offer a glimpse into this past and its location provides easy access to the communities of the lower Chubut valley, many of which cling fiercely to their Welsh heritage.

Puerto Madryn is also the gateway for Peninsula Valdés, one of Argentina’s prime wildlife-viewing locations. At different times of year, you can see Magellanic penguins, orcas, sea lions and whales – although not all at once. The town has further embraced this eco-conscious bent with the Ecocentro, that has thought-provoking displays of marine ecosystems. If you’re more of an active type, Puerto Madryn hostels are very close to the seaside which means there are ample opportunities to do many kinds of water-based activities.

For aficionados of literature, Puerto Madryn also has ties to Antoine St.-Exupéry (author of The Little Prince). He flew in the area as the mail pilot in the early part of the 20th century.

The bus terminal is centrally located, making it an easy walk to Puerto Madyrn hostels, which are located primarily in the downtown core. The town is structured on a grid system along a long stretch of beach, so it’s easy to find your way around.
