Península Valdés: el Paraíso Recobrado

Península Valdés is situated Northeast of Provinica del Chubut, at Atlantic Ocean, united to mainland by a narrow isthmus. It is a protected area; there are 54 ranchs (ovine live-stock), and as the land was not expropriated, it si not a National Park, but a reservation.
It is a beautiful area, meeting point of whales, killer whales, seadogs and southern elephant seals.
Puerto Pirámides is the town in Península Valdés; a charming village caught between the cliffs and the sea.

Península Valdés está situada la noreste de la Provinica del Chubut, sobre el Océano Atlántico, unida al continente por un estrecho istmo. Es un área protegida; en ella hay 54 estancias que practican la ganadería ovina en forma extensiva; dado que los terrenos no fueron expropiados, no es un Parque Nacional, sino una reserva. Es un área bellísima, punto de encuentro de ballenas, orcas, lobos y elefantes marinos.
Puerto Pirámides es el pueblo en Península Valdés; un pueblito encantador, atrapado entre los acantilados y el mar.
