Create an itinerary including Playa El Doradillo
Catch a glimpse of majestic southern right whales in the wild at Playa El Doradillo. Due to its particular geography, the otherwise unspectacular beach represents one of the few places in South America where you can regularly see these huge whales from land. In fact, the creatures often come within a few meters of the shore, presenting an excellent opportunity to take some memorable photographs. You'll need a bit of luck, though--if conditions aren't right, the whales might not make an appearance.

  • We drove through this rout to go to Valses Peninsula. It has a great view and we took a photo of this place with our car. However, rout 42 is very bumpy, and we can barely drive at 40km/h. So, if you want to drive fast, avoid this rout and go with highway number 1 or 2!
  • Great place for whale watching, you will need a car ride, but its worth... in whale season you will see whales from the beach
