PUERTO MADRYN

WHEN TO GO



Whatever the traveler's preference, Puerto Madryn can give him or her what he or she wishes at any time of the year, because in this coastal city of Chubut it is high season all year round.

This little town offers a range of options varying from easygoing strolls along its beautiful and romantic beachfront boulevard to excursions to the slopes of the Patagonian plateau and, obviously, the unique opportunity to view the Southern Right Whale at close quarters.

Summer day wear is light clothing, because temperatures tend to be of the scorching variety, with maximums of 35 Celsius that on occasion can jump effortlessly to 40 Celsius (104 F). However, keep a sweatshirt, pullover or anorak handy for the night, because it tends to be on the fresh side.

Remember that the closer you get to the Antarctic Polar Circle, the less protection your skin will get from the sun's ultraviolet radiation because of the hole in the ozone layer.

In winter, temperatures are low, although there is no snow because we are on the shores of the ocean, the global "moderator" of climates. It is, however, very windy. You should therefore include with your winter clothing when you are packing, a good anorak, proper footwear and a cap.

In Puerto Madryn, during winter, different cultural and sporting events are organized, in which tourists often take part together with the residents.

Winter is also an excellent season for the traveler to learn about the underwater world accompanied by a professional diver, either by day or by night.

It is a good idea to bring with you warm clothing and anoraks to protect you against the wind. You should also bring proper trekking shoes and a cap to keep your head warm on the outings. Don't forget your sun filter.


SEASONS
Summer: from December 15 up to March 15.
Whales: from June 15 up to December 15.


FESTIVALS AND EVENTS

Week of Underwater Activities.

June
14. Official launching of the Whale Season by the public schoolchildren of the city. The idea is to create public awareness of tourism and a "Culture of Hospitality" among Puerto Madryn's child and teenage population.
28. The "Clean Ocean Bed Drive": this is a classical event in Puerto Madryn, Argentina's National Scuba Diving Capital. Created by a group of local divers as an offshoot of the "Fondali Pulitti" project, that started in Italy in 1972. Its purpose is to sensitize and educate those who still lack respect for their environment an consider the ocean to be nothing more than a convenient rubbish dump.

July
1st Week: The Whale Season Promotion Caravan in Crdoba, Rosario and Buenos Aires.
28. The historical events that created the city of Puerto Madryn are re-enacted. The "Barrel Race" is one of the traditional activities in which the local population and tourists get together to commemorate Puerto Madryn's anniversary.

PUERTO MADRYN

WEATHER & CLIMATE







The southeast of Chubut province, an area generally known as the Lower Valley, has a preponderantly dry climate, although as happens in almost all of Patagonia, one should add that it is quite fickle. Puerto Madryn's weather is a good example of this.

This is a basically arid region. For this reason and because of the moderating effect of the sea on temperatures, its weather presents special features.

The annual median temperature is 14 degrees Celsius, with a summer high of 35 degrees and a winter low of 5 degrees. Rainfall is scarce in both summer and winter, barely reaching 175 mm a year.

In summer, the scorching sun forces the visitor to shed his warm clothing, but summer nights are cool, so you mustn't forget to carry a sweatshirt, pullover or anorak when you go out in the evening.

In winter, temperatures are low, but there is no snow. This is because Puerto Madryn is on the ocean shore, where the moderating effect of the warm sea currents keeps temperatures fairly even.

Yes, it is true that it is windy. That is why we recommend that in addition to the type of clothing necessary for the time of year, you include when packing a good wind-cheater or sou'wester, proper footwear and a cap.

Median temperature:

January: 20 Celsius
February: 20 C
March: 18 C
April: 15 C
May: 15 C
June: 12 C
July: 10 C
August: 12 C
September: 13 C
October: 15 C
November: 16 C
December: 19 C


Ocean temperature:

From May through October, the calm waters of the sea in Chubut, at the latitude of Puerto Madryn, reach an average temperature of 10 to 15 C.

From November through April, these same waters are at a temperature of 17 or 18 C.

Recommendation
Before starting off for Puerto Madryn, the traveler should consider that the weather in this region is quite variable. From a warm morning it may go to a cold, starry night; a day that dawns pleasantly cool may suddenly become a violent sandstorm that lasts until nightfall.
