Interpreting Nature on the Valdés Peninsula
In this area, there are intangible sectors, where any kind of touristic actions are forbidden, and areas of special use, where controlled access is facilitated to make contact and appreciate the protected ecosystem.

After you walk around the Museum, you may go up to the tower, from where you can watch through a telescope the coast of Golfo Nuevo on the right, and the coast of Golfo San José on the left, since the watchtower is on the narrowest part of Carlos Ameghino isthmus.
