Welcome to Comodoro Rivadavia


Founded in 1901, Comodoro was once a transport hub linking ranches in nearby Sarmiento. In 1907 the town struck it rich when workers drilling for water found oil instead. With the country’s first major gusher, Comodoro became a state pet, gaining a large port, an airport and paved roads. Today it is a powerhouse in the oil industry, with the dubious status of the largest consumer of being plasma TVs in Argentina. Although the oil-industry downswing looks gloomy, there's still a casino and hot rods racing in the streets.
