PUERTO MADRYN



Hotel Bahia Nueva - Puerto Madryn Patagonia TravelThe traveler choosing Puerto Madryn for a destination should be ready to follow dream-like trails, experience the absolute silence of the plateau, regale him/herself with the fantastic shapes of the clouds overhanging the immensity of the open sea and enjoy the musical beat of the endless breakers.

He/she should also look forward to admiring the graceful combination of beaches, sea, rocky slopes, flora, fauna and deserts that extend beyond the horizon in every direction, as well as bearing witness to the remains of an epoch when the ocean was much higher and the only land in the area swarmed with dinosaurs.

Recepcion Hotel Bahia Nueva - Puerto Madryn Patagonia TravelPuerto Madryn is a city that according to the 2001 census has 57.571 residents, offering the scenarios we have described above for sporting activities and thoughtful relaxation. It has 30 km of beaches that frame a modern city with an efficient tourism facility infrastructure.

It is in the northeastern area of Chubut province, at the foot of the rocky slopes of a plateau that rises to 120 meters above sea level, facing the blue waters of Golfo Nuevo, where the rising and falling hum of the wind provides a musical accompaniment to the chirping of the city birds.

The first time this land was trod by Europeans was in January 1779, when the expedition commanded by Juan de la Piedra discovered the Golfo de San José. He disembarked on the present-day Villarino beach, initiating a flux of immigration which has continued, with some interruptions.

The city of Puerto Madryn was founded in 1865, and named after Love Jones Parry, who was Baron of Madryn in Wales. In late July of that year, a contingent of 150 immigrants from Wales arrived in Chubut on the sailing ship Mimosa.

This process was accelerated a year later, when construction was started on the leg of the railway joining Puerto Madryn to the city of Trelew, with the labor of Welsh, Spanish and Italian immigrants.

From then onwards, Puerto Madryn became the doorway to the colony. The city grew slowly but steadily, thanks to the activities of the railway and port and local trade and storage services.

This structure was only maintained, however, until the first years of the nineteen sixties. That is when customs franchises were abolished and the last coastal trading firms disappeared, as did the "Compañía Mercantil de Chubut" (Chubut Trading Company).

Finally, the coup de grace was the closure of the Patagonian Railway.

Vista Panoramica - Puerto Madryn Patagonia TravelThis series of events leads to the development of the tourism resources in the southeast part of the province, and new expectations are born thanks to the installation of some new industries, such as the aluminum production plant in the mid-seventies.

As from then, Puerto Madryn has grown explosively thanks to tourism and the new industrial facilities, doubling its fixed population and making it the region's service hub.

If you want to feel the magical beauty that defines this city, just take an easy stroll along its streets to discover the secret corners of its past and the soft sands of its beaches, where you will find entertainment watching the antics of curious sea lions and beady-eyed Magellan penguins.

Here we have the more than 30 kilometers of smoothly sloping beaches of sand and gravel, gradually sliding into the cobalt blue sea, that Puerto Madryn offers its visitors. On top of the many white cliffs that frame the surrounding landscape, tourists will find a whole range of attractive options that will make their stay a memorable turning-point in their lives.
