One final post on Bahia Bustamante before the blog moves on to the mountains of Bariloche.  We spent our last day at Bahia exploring the nearby peninsula in our tiny VW Gol.  The terrain on the peninsula is quite varied: scrub land, sand dunes and tidal pools.  There are also three landing strips, a solar-powered lighthouse and the ruins of many small buildings.  The pictures below tell the story better than I can so I will just leave it at that!

It was sad to leave Bahía Bustamante but we had a bus to catch later that night from Comodoro Rivadavia.  From a backpackers standpoint, Bahía Bustamante was definitely a splurge ($110/night plus rental car expenses) but we felt that it was certainly worth each and every centavo.  We would highly recommend it to other travelers!

  1. Finally all caught up after being away for a week! Bahia looks so interesting…I haven’t been to either, but you coulda said you were in the Galapagos and I’d believe you. Amazing sunset shot on Day 1 there. Hmm…usually you luck out when it comes to airport hiccups but not this time :) . Really looking forward to seeing some Chile pics…what an adventure thus far.
