Isla de los Pájaros

Bird Sanctuary in Reserva Faunística Península Valdés

In Golfo San José, 800m north of the isthmus, this bird sanctuary is off-limits to humans but visible through a powerful telescope. It contains a replica of a chapel built at Fuerte San José. It is best known for being the inspiration for the elephant-eating boa constrictor in Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince.
