When we arrived in Puerto Madryn, we had heard and read a lot about El Doradillo as the main playa to go. But, when we rent a car to go to Península Valdés, a person told us that Las Canteras was her favorite place to go and watch whales nearby the city, because it was more beautiful and peaceful. We then decided to give it a try on our way to Puerto Pirámides and it was just perfect! When we got to Las Canteras there were two huge southern right whales very close to the shore and it was just amazing to see. Las Canteras has beach pebbles instead of sand, which I absolutely prefer. So, we just bought some empanadas, sat on the pebbles and waited for them to come :) It was a perfect morning with our first contact with whales in life.

This is the place to see whales at only about 60 feet from the shore, you have to go specially on high tide
