In 1865, Puerto Madryn was the site of the first Welsh landing in the area. Their legacy remains today: Welsh-speakers, tearooms and Eisteddfods add a distinctive cultural flavour to the region. Another attraction is the noisy colony of Magellanic penguins at Punta Tombo, where chicks appear from November and take to the water from January. This wild and treeless tag of land, loosely linked to the mainland and reaching out into the South Atlantic, is a UNESCO-registered nature reserve that is home to a large variety of wildlife. Whales, penguins and elephant seals make up part of the profusion of marine life, whilst guanacos, rheas and armadillos roam around on the land. Southern right whales can be spotted during their breeding season of June to December, killer whales can be spotted from November through to April, and August to October is the best time to observe the elephant seals.
