Caleta Valdés

 

Photo by InterHabit SA

There is more to Caleta Valdés than southern elephants seals and magellanic penguins. Steppe fauna - tinamous, armadillos, cuis, tucu-tucus, gatos del pajonal, southern gray fox, maras, and guanacos - is regularly sighted here. Migratory birds, such as the two-banded plover, white-rumped sandpiper, red knot, Hudsonian Godwit and rufous-chested dotterel, nest here in spring. Caleta Valdés was once prime hunting and fishing grounds for the Tehuelche Indians. And while the bay has changed significantly in the past decade, it remains one of the most panoramic points in Peninsula Valdes.
