Punta Tombo is located in the province of Chubut , Argentina . It is on the Atlantic coast of Patagonia. If you want to see penguins in their natural habitat, this is the place, there are them everywhere, and you have them there at your fingertips, although it is not allowed to touch them.
You can go to Punta Tombo from the city of Rawson , or from Trelew , about 1400 km from Buenos Aires . From National Route 3 there is a detour, which runs about 30 kilometers of gravel road to the entrance of the Punta Tombo wildlife reserve . You can go by car, or with a tour from the aforementioned cities.
Once there, you have to pay an entrance fee and you are told where the trail begins. A path marked with white stones that tells us where to go. It is about two kilometers long.
The park path runs between the nests, where we can see some penguins inside the burrows they dig, others standing next to a clump of grass that is their nest and protects it from the incessant wind in the area. Others are lying down. But without a doubt, the funniest and most photographs of tourists are those who walk. And it is that fathers and mothers travel the journey from their nest to the sea several times a day to look for food. Do not miss it if you come to Argentina .
