About Categoria Patagonia
Our Travel Agency is exclusively dedicated to make Tours and Excursions to the most visited places around Puerto Madryn. We manage the reception of guests who travel to our city and take them to the best places to see like Punta Tombo, the biggest continental rookery in Argentina. Another full day excursion is Peninsula Valdes for Southern Right Whale watching and visit the Peninsula to watch all the native fauna. Full day tours are at least 250 km from Madryn, but those places deserve to be visited. Some other excursions are shorter tailored for guests who have less time to stay.
