TERRITORIO Hotel Puerto Madryn

Territorio HotelPuerto Madryn, Argentina | To me the only boutique hotel in the area of Puerto Madryn. A mixture between present and past, traditional and avant-guarde design. A singular hotel in a region like few others in the world. Their warm hospitality, the exclusive rooms and suites, the Spa, with an unparalleled view of the bay, and the outstanding Patagonian cuisine at their restaurant are the ideal introduction to your discovery of the charms of Península Valdés with a different look at its incredibly diverse nature.

In the exclusive surroundings of a boutique hotel, they offer you the chance to enjoy a complete experience in contact with this one of a kind natural space and excellent service. Territorio is located in Punta Cuevas, a historic site in the city of Puerto Madryn, in the province of Chubut.

The nature of Península Valdés—exceptional marine life offering new species to be discovered every month—and the history of the Welsh immigrants, who first faced the challenge of Patagonia in Puerto Madryn ,come together at Territorio, where the past meets the present. A unique way to discover and experience Atlantic Patagonia, its history as well as its flora and fauna in their natural habitat all year round.

At Territorio, all rooms and suites have an open view of the vast Patagonian sea and to the steppe. The interior of each room, marked by a gentle curve, is an extension of the geography that melts into traditional and modern materials, warm and simple touches. 36 rooms, between 28 and 65 m2.


The elegant Territorio restaurant is the best local gastronomic offering, with a specially designed menu based on regional ingredients, the most delicate international cuisine and a wine cellar with selections from Argentina’s main boutique wineries.
Territorio Hotel has been my host hotel during my stay at Puerto Madryn, and I have to say that they made me feel like home. The cozy ambience, the gastronomy and the attentive young professional personal make a difference at a hotel that already stands of its own. The only things I have mentioned to Gustavo – Manager of the Hotel – are… (1). The lack of WiFi in the rooms. You may connect using the cable. (detailed he mentioned will be solve within the next few weeks). (2). Due to the low season, the hotel occupancy is low and you can see that in services like the breakfast which I would recommend they serve a la carte instead of buffet. Other than that it is a GREAT experience that I am sure you will enjoy and appreciate. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends

ANDES Airlines descentralizing Argentina

ANDES Airlines descentralizing Argentina  |  Argentina  |  For the first time today I have flown ANDES Airlines, an airline with headquarters in the province of Salta (north of Argentina). One of the many new airlines opening in Argentina, that have come to decentralize the flight system of this country. With already 4 years in the market, ANDES with its distribution HUB in the Salta, has dally regular and charter flights connecting many points of Argentina. Some of the most relevant are: the chance to connect from the city of Salta to the Iguazu Falls, and what brings me today to test their service… the daily non-stop flight between Buenos Aires and Puerto Madryn in the province of Chubut. ( land of the Whales, Penguins and Seals ).

The fleet of ANDES consists in 4 McDonnell Douglas MD80 and 2 brand new Bombardier that have arrived this year. A fast pace growing company, that is here to stay and redefine the air traffic of this country, along with other similar airlines.

ANDES Airlines, flies to Esquel, San Carlos de Bariloche, Salta, Jujuy, Cordoba, Iguazu Falls, and charter seasonal flights to Brazil, Venezuela and Chile.

Been There Done That by CM • (flight Buenos Aires / Puerto Madryn – 1hs. 40min) My experience overall was more than satisfactory and I might say why…. (1). you can easily purchase your ticket only, (2). It is a non-top and direct flight from the domestic airport of Buenos Aires to Puerto Madryn. The case is not the same if you choose to flight the competition, which only gets to Trelew (1 hs. away by bus from Puerto Madryn). (3). Price wise it is very reasonable and affordable. (4). The onboard service is very professional and regardless of the length of your flight they serve a smalll snack and two rounds of beverages. The problems are that… (1). The plane took off 40 minutes after the scheduled time of departure (due to weather conditions at our destination, so they said… ha ha ha don’t they all say the same), (2). The peach between seats is MINIMUM… I know it is only an 1hs. 40min. flight, but hey I was crammed into the seat and could barely move. Thank god the airline is not that popular yet and almost half the plane was empty, and the two seats next to me were open. (3). The check IN process makes you think two times wether you are flying or just taking a bus to your destination. Very informal and the seat assignments and tags are all made by hand and with an old school style rooster.

Other than that…. I am know happy and safe in Puerto Madryn ready to start my new adventure and share with you all my new Chronicles of a Gay Traveler in Puerto Madryn Argentina. Now I am off to Hotel Territorio, my host hotel for the length of my stay. Stay tuned !!!! CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
