After a couple of days back in Buenos Aires recovering from our long bus journey from Iguazu Falls, we took another long bus journey to Puerto Madryn. Bob and I immediately took to Puerto Madryn. It is a chilled out seaside town. We booked three nights here in a self-catered apartment, but we could have stayed a couple of more. We are learning that after a really long bus journey, it is wise to spend no less than 4 days in a place if possible. Unfortunately, you never know what the place is going to be like. After the bustle and grime of Buenos Aires, Puerto Madryn was like a breath of fresh air. It is clean and tidy. We travelled nearly 20 hours on the bus from Buenos Aires, and although it can be tiring traveling this way, we would miss out on the seemingly endless landscape and the wildlife and plants seen from the side of the road. We would also miss out on some amazing sunrises and sunsets like below that seem to last for hours. This part of Patagonia is flat!
The town also has a very long and sandy beach.
