Fodor's Expert Review Bahía Bustamante

Bahía Bustamante, Chubut, 9111, Argentina Fodor's Choice

This lodge is the reason to visit the area---a comfortable home with a fab kitchen in the middle of Patagonian wilderness with some of the best nature-spotting in coastal Argentina.

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 11:30 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. Bahía Bustamante currently operates between September and March, with other months available but check in advance.
