CONTAINER IN PATAGONIA
Why sleep in a Container?
The hotel rating system by stars becomes obsolete when you want to apply it to Patagonia, because a good accommodation in Patagonia is one that gives you access to remote places, otherwise impossible to reach …
The one that allows you to feel the loneliness and immensity of the landscape. Only then have you been to Patagonia.
Containers Patagonia was born from this initiative.

Where is the Container?
The Container accommodation is located on Route 1 between the cities of Comodoro Rivadavia and Trelew (both with an airport).
The container is surrounded by a desert landscape typical of the Patagonian steppe and facing the Atlantic Ocean 5 meters from the sea.
Just 1KM you will have a town called Camarones, where you can find a grocery store, the odd bar and a restaurant.

How do I arrive?
From Buenos Aires we recommend you take a plane to the city of Comodoro Rivadavia or Trelew and rent a vehicle for your trips.
If you prefer to arrive in your own vehicle, you have to take route 3 heading north or south, which corresponds to your departure location.
How to get there from Comodoro:
You must take route 3 northwards, passing the Garayalde gas station where route 30 starts, which leads you to Camarones and then you connect with route 1 heading north until after 1 kilometer of gravel you will see the Container on your right.
If you come from Trelew:
You must also take route 3 but heading south, before reaching the Garayalde gas station you must take route 30 that connects with the town of Camarones, from there you connect with route 1 heading north until after 1 kilometer of gravel you will see the Container on your left.
What to visit in the area
Cabo Dos Bahías
The Cabo Dos Bahías Protected Natural Area is the most valuable natural attraction in the area. Located 28 kilometers south of the Container on Route 1.
Cabo dos bahías will allow you to appreciate a beautiful landscape of different shades, where the sea, its foam and the rocks of the coast generate strong contrasts. In addition, the cape concentrates an important colony of Magellanic penguins, along with a large number of guanacos, rheas and foxes that are used to photographs.
This natural area aims to preserve the life of a species of seabird that lands on the Argentine coast every year to carry out its reproduction cycle: The Magellanic Penguins. You can tour the colony and observe an area full of caves and the activities that these birds carry out.
They lay their eggs inside the caverns. As the eggs hatch, they take care of their young. The male is somewhat taller than the female. The latter lay their eggs in early October and breed for 40 days. Both parents monitor the nest and their young together.
The Pingüinera de Camarones contemplates an area of 3 kilometers long and 600 meters wide that protrudes from the sea, with beaches of sand, clay and gravel. The penguins constantly cross this territory to dive into the sea and catch the anchovies and the small squid that they love so much.
Coastal Maritime National Park
Created in 2009, it is one of the most recent national parks in Argentina. The “Patagonia Austral” Coastal Marine Interjurisdictional Park occupies the north coast of the San Jorge Gulf and its adjacent marine zone, between Cape Dos Bahías and Quintano Island, southeast of the province of Chubut.
It is located between the towns of Camarones and Comodoro Rivadavia and has an area of more than 100 square kilometers.
Bahía Bustamante Ranch
At “only” 45 kilometers from the Container is the Estancia Bahía Bustamante, an old algüero establishment converted to tourism that has the possibility of taking boat trips to spot local fauna: sea lions, different birds and a small colony of Magellanic penguins and it also offers you the possibility of visiting a Petrified Forest.
