Our first major stop after Buenos Aires was Puerto Madryn, Argentina.  Our destination once arriving was the Valdes Peninsula which is a huge nature preserve inhabited by seals, seal lions and Magellan Penguins.

After a bit of a bus ride we arrive at the visitor center where many fossils and similar are on display.

 

From the visitor center we headed to the east coast of he Valdes Peninsula to visit the world's largest Magellan Penguin colony which has an estimated 500,000+ penguins living there.
