Elephant Seal Colony
With the sea elephants just meters from the rooms of the hotel, it's easy to visit them whenever you wish and then fall asleep to their peaceful sounds at night.
You can also enjoy walks along the coast, accompanied by guides to observe the marine elephants. This will allow you to observe these magnificent species carefully without disturbing them.
Simply coordinate with the hotel guides when ever you wish to explore.
Surrounded by over six kilometres of beach, there's no shortage of trekking opportunities.
You can hike Punta Delgada with cliffs of up to 70 meters high that offer incredible views of the coast.
The guided trekking activities, led by our specialised park rangers, will take you on a historic journey to discover the animals that lived in this place 20 million years ago. The tour also includes visits to sites that were inhabited by Indians who have left their traces in these historic places.
Take a ride through the cliffs and immerse yourself on a journey through land and sea. From the cliffs on either side you can see totally different incredible landscapes, the sea and the steppe.
A characterful base from which to explore the highlights of the southern peninsula, including the elephant seals an

Originally, headquarters of Correo Argentino and the casino of the Argentine Navy. There, the naval force instructed the future lighthouse operators, who later assigned it to different points along our extensive coast.
El Faro, as it was more than a century ago, carries out its mission of guiding the boats every night. The buildings were carefully renovated, which without losing their charm - a great wonderful, cosy and remote spot to relax and enjoy the wilderness of the peninsula.
I love the location of Faro Punta Delgada - is perfectly situated for wildlife spotting on the peninsula, particularly for elephant seals. It is remote, quirky and unique - a great way to experience more traditional estancia life in Patagonia for a few nights.
