Comodoro Rivadavia – Entering Argentina’s Southland
The city of Comodoro Rivadavia sits at the eastern edge of the famous highway connecting Argentina to Chile. The city was founded at the beginning of the 1900s, linking local estancias. Contemporary life bustles along the main streets of Avenida San Martin and Avenida Rivadavia. Boutique shops line the walkways and showcase elaborate window displays as if each dress or suit were artwork. The summit of Mount Chenque watches over the city and provides a unique panorama of the urban settlement stretching to the cobalt shores of the San Jorge Gulf, an ocean basin that provides pathways to the Atlantic Ocean.
Soft sandy beaches line the coast, leading to the town of Rada Tilly. The ocean break fills the air with a gentle lull. At the foot of the slopes near Punt del Marques, oyster beds decorate the shores during low tide, and a wild colony of sea lions relaxes on the sun-drenched sandbars. Your private transfer greets you at General Enrique Mosconi International Airport upon your arrival. You easily settle into the captivating luxuries of the city and its beautiful surroundings. Consider learning more about your Patagonia travel agents who strive to provide a highly personalized and memorable Patagonia trip of a lifetime for you.
