Puerto Madryn amazes the tourist right at the very first sight. It is one of the most vibrant cities in Patagonia, with a beautiful coastal avenue overlooking the huge natural amphitheater of Nuevo Gulf.
Madryn is a port city with a major deep-water port. But it is also an industrial city, mainly focused on aluminium production, fishing and tourism.
At present, Madryn has a population of 80,000.
No doubt that Madryn´s attraction is the fact of being less than 50 km. from the Peninsula de Valdés, a natural sanctuary with a great variety of marine fauna and where whale watching is one of the greatest attractions.
