We went two hours by ferry to Isla Magdalena where there are about 60,000 pairs of penguins. Very rough seas but it was worth it to walk amongst these fascinating animals

No need for city tours. Everything is within walking distance. There is information office at main square. Saw everything we wanted to in a few hours and spent another few hours at hotel restaurant next to Sara Braun Palace. Drinks were strong. Service, food and internet was good. Chile also has strange rules regarding ATM withdrawals. Maximum withdrawal we found was 200000 pesos and there is 5000 peso fee.

Town itself isn't much, but excursion to Magdalena Island penguin colony was great!

Liked it, but wish the guide had a voice box with us having the receiver. We couldn't always hear the guide. We visited the Bounty which Darwin sailed on (it was a full size replica) as well as two other ships. Would have liked to visit the museum longer.

See the penquins here. The ferry is preferable to the 2 hour dusty drive you will have in Puerto Madryn.
