Bahía Bustamante Review

Choose between six guesthouses right on the beach (food and activities included), or one of the simpler five guesthouses off the beach on an accommodation-only basis; each of the beach guesthouses includes twin bedrooms, a living room, a bathroom, and a kitchen. There's electricity only between sunset and 11 pm. Activities include bird-watching, visits to a local petrified forest and archaeological sites, and boat excursions to the Malaspina cove, where there are sea-lion colonies, plus penguin and seabird rookeries. Other options are trips to local estancias—where you might see demonstrations of old-style sheep shearing using scissors—as well as horseback riding, fishing, mountain-bike excursions, and trekking. Nearly all of the food cooked in the restaurant comes from ingredients grown at the local estancias or fished from the local waters, and with a chef who studied at El Bulli and trained at B.A.'s top restaurants you know that you are in for a culinary treat at this wild beach paradise. Bahía Bustamante currently operates between October and April, with other months available by checking in advance.
