We start driving through the National Route 3 upon reaching the intersection with “J” Route, taking a gravel road through a dense native forest. As we reach the coast, we head east and start walking into the woods to a tumbling waterfall. Back
in our vehicle we take our travelers to Puerto Almanza, the southernmost fishing port in Argentina.
From there, we take another gravel road 15 kilometers until we arrive to a lovely small fishermen village. Here nearly everyone in this village is dedicated to specialized fishing, catching crab, centollones, mussels, cholgas and other typical
mollusks of this area.
A local family receives and invites us to board on their boat, in which we go to special spot. We stop, cast the nests and wait up to we catch good amount of crab! As we return home, the owners of the house teach us how to prepare a crab in a Patagonian style, boiled in salty sea water. We gather the spices directly from the garden and together we cook one of the richest gourmet dishes in memory.
Recommendation: drink water. Weark comfortable shoes, a rain coat and sun glasses. Bring your camera!
Duration: 9 hours.
