This Estancia was a strategic point in the transport of wool and other merchandise, uniting through the estuary, the most distant Patagonia with the Pampas. Transformed today in Darwin Camp- Eco Lodge, we merge the authentic Patagonian style of its structure with an exquisite and personalized service: 4 rooms with private bathroom, full board & activities full of history, adventure and nature, are perfect to be enchanted by the magnificence of the place.
