Puerto Madryn Plan

Hi all. Still tweaking (no, I did not say twerking!).

We have 4 nights after our Buenos Aires week and before our 3 nights in El Calafate. We would like to visit Puerto Madryn area for the Penguin Colony which was a highlight of our daughter's trip las fall. It is a big jump as we are already spending what seems like an arm and leg for just 4 nights in Iguazu but oh well....

Is this a sensible plan?

1. Early AA flight to Trelew, arriving 9:45am
2. Car rental, drop off luggage at hostel and drive to Punta Tombo.
3. Drive back to Trelew and spend the night .
4. Drive to Puerto Madryn for 2 nights.
5. Drive to Peninsula Valdes with an overnight at del Nomad.
6. Drive to Trelew, return car for late afternoon flight to El Calafate.

We are renting a car as I think,we will have longdayinvanwithmanypeopleitis by this point in our trip.

Also wondering what the best time of day would be for Punto Tombo as I imagine we wouldn't arrive there until afternoon.

And is it chancey driving from Puerto Madryn to Trelew for same day flight?

Your help is appreciated more than you can imagine. Planning this long a trip has been daunting!
