On her blog Viajes y Relatos, Laura Schneider shares her experience visiting Puerto Deseado, in the province of Santa Cruz, Argentina. On the six-day photo-safari, she photographed the beautiful city and places nearby:

Yendo por la ruta 3, luego de pasar Comodoro Rivadavia y Caleta Olivia a 300 km, nace una ruta que desvía a Puerto Deseado. Ciudad costera y portuaria de la patagonia con acantilados, una gran biodiversidad de aves y mamíferos y varios circuitos costeros que nos lleva a la famosa Ria.

Pingüinos magallánicos, pingüinos de penacho amarillo, lobos marinos, delfín austral, cormoranes, toninas, ostreros y gaviotines es la gran variedad que se puede avistar. Pero mas allá de la fauna, Puerto Deseado es una ciudad rica en historia dado por su tren.

Taking route 3, after passing Comodoro Rivadavia and Caleta Olivia 300 km back, there is a detour that takes you to Puerto Deseado. This is a coastal and port city in the Patagonia with cliffs, a large amount of biodiversity with birds and mammals and a series of coastal tours that takes us to the very well known Ria.

Magellanic penguins, rockhopper penguins, Patagonian sea lions, Peale's dolphins, cormorants, river dolphins, oystercatchers and terns are part the great variety of this place. But beyond the fauna, Puerto Deseado is a city rich in history due to its train.
