We enjoyed tea at one of the tea houses and then a wander around town, through the train tunnel and up to the viewpoint above the town.
It was very quiet around town, but hopefully things will pick up for them very soon.
Very enjoyable walk and very filling tea

Welsh Heritage

This city and the area in general was settled in the 1850s by Welsh immigrants, and while a modern small town it still has a few cold structures and cultural attraction we saw as part of a cruise ship tour. Had afternoon tea at the Welsh Tea House and had a short city tour. Of US H iui storic note, there is a hotel in the city where Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid stayed around 1908 before traveling to Boliva.

A day well spent in Gaiman

Allow plenty of time in Gaiman especially if you are Welsh. The tourist office gave us a plan but we ran out of time. Museum fascinating with Welsh speaking curator. Gave lots of background and had visited North Wales. Settlement more successful than generally portrayed. Est. 5000 welsh speakers here. Welsh tea huge expect to take half home. Croeso arbebnig!

Come for the tea shops

We had the most delicious tea and cakes in this town! We got a reservation at Ty Gwin which we loved. It’s a very sleepy town when there are no cruise tours and completely shuttered if in the morning so plan accordingly. Very sweet way to celebrate my birthday!

Just 80 km away from Puerto Madryn you’ll get to see a Welsh town in Argentina. Gaiman is famous for its Welsh tea, in which you’ll be able to taste a delicious assortment of different kinda of cake and bread. The atmosphere is truly cozy. Don’t miss it!

I took the tour because there was nothing else to do in the area if you are not driving. The only thing that I liked was the view of the river at sunset....amazing pics!

A must

Interesting town. Tiny but with a proud Welsh connection. Lovely riverside walk, tea houses and first house built by Welsh settlers as well as a couple of small museums. One can get there easily by very regular and comfortable buses from Trelew and Puerto Madryn for just a few pesos.

Full of wonderful surprises

Gaiman is the beating heart of the Welsh community in Eastern Patagonia. Spend at least a day here, talk to as many locals as possible and take in all the sights. My top list includes Siop Bara, where you can get coffee, beer and WIFI, Blasus, where you can buy a birthday cake and have a good chat, the two hotels, Plas y Coed and Ty Gwyn (both of which have excellent tea rooms and impeccable Welsh credentials), the Museum and its wizard curator, Fabio Gonzalez, the Tourist Office, with Welsh brochures, toilets and WIFI, the best bar, Mochyn Du, the best restaurant, Gwalia Lân, the two Bethel Chapels (ask in your hotel how to find someone to open them), the main square, with its Welsh Columbus monument and Alamo Sculpture, the cemetery just outside town and, especially, the School of Music, where all the choirs and other musicians rehearse.

Charming town
Jan 2019 • Family
This stop was unexpected, as we took a tour to punta tombo, and on the way back we stopped in Gaiman to have some tea. As i love small towns over big cities, this is a charming little town. Princess Diana had tea at one of the traditional tea houses in Gaiman. Definately worth the trip!
