Last week we had a look at some of the wonders of Peninsula Valdes in Argentina. A wildlife hotspot featuring whales, seals and penguins, this destination is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. However, knowing the right place to stay is also extremely important, so here are some of the best hotels on the island. Don’t forget to Contact A Latin Routes Travel Specialist for more information about your holiday to Argentina!
This beautiful luxury hotel is located right in the heart of thePeninsula Valdes National Park, giving you access to an astonishing 10km stretch of coastline owned by the hotel itself. This coastline is home to elephant seals and sea lions, which use the beach to breed each year – hundreds of them dotting the beach is certainly an amazing sight.
The hotel itself is colonial in style with lots of wood and oak giving you an all-encompassing sense of opulence and luxury. With a large open veranda at the front affording you panoramic views of the coastline, there is nothing quite like waking up to the sun rising over the open water. Estancia Rincon Chico has just 8 rooms, meaning it is as exclusive as it is comfortable. This is in addition to the cozy living room (featuring an open fireplace) and a dining room where your delicious meals will be served. Day trips to the whale watching boats are run frequently and can be organised when you’re not walking or cycling around the surrounding area!
Also located inside the National Park, the Faro Punta Delgada is well-equipped for your holiday to Argentina, featuring a pub, a restaurant and even a boutique! The 28 tastefully furnished guestrooms are a standout feature of this hotel, with a really impressive attention to detail. With superb view of the surrounding coastline, Faro Punta Delgada is also just a short distance away from a beach housing elephant seals – perfect for wildlife enthusiasts and photographers alike!
This hotel is best for those looking to make the most of the wildlife spotting opportunities available in Peninsula Valdes. Whale watching, dolphin, penguin and killer whale spotting are all on offer either through or near the hotel. Remember to Talk To A Latin Routes Travel Specialist to find out more. An interesting fact about the hotel is its lighthouse which is still in operation even today!
