This locality situated in the Atlantic sector of the province of Río Negro, occupies the second place as long as tourism affluence to the province is concerned, after San Carlos de Bariloche. 
It posseses 2,5 km. of golden sand beaches bathed by warm waters and gentle slopes. The sea is blue and is surrounded by huge cliffs, where water and time have carved beautiful caves that protect the tourist from the Patagonic winds.
Of Mediterranean architecture, this picturesque summer village has variable coasts that offer the walker sand dunes,  ravines, clean sand, and rocky formations in which mussels and octupus hide. 
Located over the San Matías Gulf, its temperate, transparent waters, are ideal for resting, sporting fishing, walking, fishing and scuba diving.
