Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Patagonia / Province of Chubut / Puerto Madryn / Playa El Doradillo
Catch a glimpse of majestic southern right whales in the wild at Playa El Doradillo. Due to its particular geography, the otherwise unspectacular beach represents one of the few places in South America where you can regularly see these huge whales from land. In fact, the creatures often come within a few meters of the shore, presenting an excellent opportunity to take some memorable photographs. You'll need a bit of luck, though--if conditions aren't right, the whales might not make an appearance. Take a look at our Puerto Madryn online travel route planner to schedule your visit to Playa El Doradillo and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

Nice to spend the day and wear the matte and the viand. Entry is paid.
Great place for whale watching, you will need a car ride, but its worth... in whale season you will see whales from the beach
