I love penguins. I think everyone loves penguins because what's there not to love!? If you truly want to see penguins up close then you have to pay this Estancia a visit. You'll be walking amongst the little feathered creatures and they'll be all around you with their cuteness. These adorable birds aren't even phased by your human presence! Just... More

I absolutely loved this place. For anyone with even the slightest interest in the natural world this is one of the most incredible habitats on the planet. You will see all sorts here from Penguins, orcas, armadillos and all kinds of other amazing creatures. I went there some years ago but wasn't allowed to enter that date, however, I simply... More

Estancia San Lorenzo was one of our favorite penguin sites (second to Volunteer Point in the Falklands). Magellanic penguins were everywhere - we were able to wander about freely as long as we didn't impede the penguins and stayed within the rock borders. We were amazed at how close we could get to these magnificent birds. They are fearless of... More

Estancia San Lorenzo, about 160 km from Puerto Madryn shelters a colony of Magellanic penguins. The cliffs and beach with the penguins are a short drive from the main house. There you will be among thousands of penguins with the opportunity to walk to the beach where penguins enter and come out of the water. The restaurant at the Estancia... More

We visited Valdes peninsula in the end of 2014. Penguins are absolutely awesome creatures and it's extremely interesting to watch them. And after we spent some time with them we went for lunch in San Lorenzo estancia. And this was our best meal in Argentina. I had never ever tried such lamb barbecue. I even could not imagine that meet... More

This is the place to go to see Penguins on Peninsula Valdes! Estancia is a bit further away which keep most of the masses away. They take you to see the penguins buy car so you can not drive near by them on your own. We had 1 guide to our group of 3. So total 4 people, a beach... More

This is a wonderful spot in many ways, providing you're not looking for a fully guided tour. The visit is mostly self-guided with clear walkways and signage. There is an area close to the beach that is roped off so you won't be joining the penguins in the surf, but otherwise you'll be up close and personal with the birds.... More

Puerto Madryn has an unique place to live the real experience with 200,000 PENGUINS nesting walking and patroling literally everywhere. Penguins can be found within the extensive lands of ESTANCIA SAN LORENZO, located in PUNTA NORTE, only 160kms from Puerto Madryn City and managed by the same old immigrant's family for more than 100 years with the same professionalism and...

We heard about this penguin place by coincidence from somebody in Puerto Madryn, because it´s not on one of the tourist info maps, and that´s a shame because this place is fantastic. Beautiful nature and loads of penguins, all over the place, and the cool thing is that you can walk in between them. They´re so incredibly funny, wonderful creatures.... More
