Santa Cruz in Argentina is the perfect place for anyone looking to relax and unwind away from the stresses and strains of modern daily life.

There are many things to do and interesting places to visit here including a glacier filled national park, superb villas, stunning lakes, quaint old towns, interesting archaeological and paleontological sites with caves full of ancient paintings, beautiful bay areas with a variety of flora and fauna along with wildlife including seals and penguins, relaxing beaches and of course the wonderful city of Santa Cruz which filled with culture, attractions, good quality hotels and restaurants with very friendly and accommodating local people and Puerto Santa Cruz, where the Rio Santa Cruz flows into the Mar Argentino (this is truly an amazing place to visit).

If you are planning on visiting Santa Cruz during the winter season and you like skiing, the best place to go is the Valdelen. This ski centre is 4km away from the city of Rio Turbio and it has three good quality large ski slopes.
