My wife and I visited San Lorenzo after driving to see Punta Norte. We had our hotel book a time for the guided tour before our day trip and happened to arrive early. Fortunately for us, they could accommodate us joining a earlier tour group....More
We went to San Lorenzo to see the penguins, but discovered on arrival that we could only see them on a guided tour that was only at 3-4 time slots during the day. The next tour was in 1.5 hrs, so we ate (very mediocre...More
If you want to see penguins up close and personal then go no further than Estancia San Lorenzo. The penguins were very curious and comfortable in human company and many would walk right up to you. The ranger told us the colony had 600,000 penguins...More

There is a marked...More

I would use Patagonia del Sol/Huinca Travel (they are owned by the same people) and if possible ask for Sebastian or Mary as the guide. We had Sebastian who was incredible, but also have read that Mary is very good.
