Accommodation. Dinner.

Day 2: Puerto Deseado. Breakfast. Full day excursion to Ría Deseado, an interesting area conformed by the inlet and the adjoining zones. The town of Puerto Deseado is located nearby. This inlet is unique for its geological and fauna aspects. The course of the river has been abandoned by the former river that covered it and was occupied by the sea.

This makes it a national treasure, due to aesthetic and scientific reasons. It's the only place in the world where five different species of cormorants coexist, all of them feeding in the area and three of them nesting. The Magellanic penguin is a usual inhabitant of the inlet from October to April and the most important rockeries are Quiroga Island, Punta del Paso Key, Birds Island and Chaffers Island. Return to the hotel.
