Patagonia travel guide: North coast region
Plateau & Coast region
region is defined to the north by the river Colorado, to the
west by the meridian
70, to the south by the line of the south limit of the Río
Negro province, and to the east by the Atlantic ocean.The extensive
arid plateau that descends toward the Atlantic is one of the
typical features of the Patagonia landscape. It is furrowed by
the big rivers Neuquén, Limay and Negro whose waters allow
the watering of the biggest fruit oasis in the country. A rosary
of cities settles in the riversides, from Neuquén to Viedma.
The big dikes have generated artificial lakes on the rivers Neuquén
and Limay modifying the natural landscape, as well as the oil
exploitation, whose facilities interrupt the desert. In the coast,
beaches with different grade of tourist development attract for
their rural beauty, the presence of marine fauna or the possibility
of sport fishing.
