Wenceslao Bottaro shares on his blog [1] the trip he made to the south of Puerto Madryn [2], in the province of Chubut, Argentina. This time, he visited Punta Este, Punta Loma and Cerro Avanzado, among other tourist attractions.

Este es un paseo para descubrir la zona sur de Puerto Madryn, es apto para todo público y muy agradable para hacer.

Desde el EcoCentro, al final del boulevar, aún tenemos que seguir algunos kilómetros más para llegar a Punta Este. Desde este lugar disfrutamos de magníficas vistas de la ciudad y vemos como se extiende sobre la costa abrazando el golfo. 

Poco antes de llegar a la playa nos detenemos en una parte elevada del camino que nos ofrece vistas increíbles; pero al bajar de la camioneta para tomar una foto, me hipnotiza lo que veo: enfrente y a lo lejos, los cerros caen en pliegues de colores tenues, violáceos, como chorreados sobre sí mismos [...]

This is a visit to discover the southern part of Puerto Madryn, it's suitable for everybody and very nice.

From EcoCentro, at the end of the boulevard, we still are some kilometers away from Punta Este. From here, we enjoy magnificent views of the city and we see how it extends over the shore embracing the gulf.

Just before getting to the beach, we stop at an elevated part of the road that has some amazing views, but getting out of the car to take a picture, I'm mesmerized by what I see: in front of me and far away, the mountains fall in soft-colored folds, violet, as if leaked on themselves [...].

This is a very thorough account that invites readers to visit these places with unique natural beauty.
