Bahia Bustamante is situated on the northern shore of the San Jorge Gulf, 180 km north of Comodoro Rivadavia city and 250 km south of Trelew city. It is a unique experience for visitors willing to explore the Argentine Patagonia OUT OF THE REGULAR circuits.
Dirt roads can be found, bearing names of seaweeds. The quiet is only interrupted by gusts of wind, the singing of hundreds of species of birds and the breaking of the waves on the shore. The village has the ocean on one side and the never- ending steppe on the other. The Argentine flag waves behind the old López Bar, the oldest construction and silent witness of bygone days. Peace reigns all around.
Seaweed harvesters, biologists, sheep ranchers, families, adventure- lovers, artists, guests from every corner of the world, all find their place in Bahía Bustamante.
There is no mobile signal but there is a Wi-Fi connection and a public telephone. Electric light is produced by a generator from dusk until 11 p.m. Bahía Bustamante is the ideal place to use as a base to explore the Atlantic Patagonian surroundings: a sheep farm, petrified forest, the sea, the beach, the lighthouse and a sanctuary of sea fauna, notable for its numbers and diversity.
