Hi! I like very much your description of cerro verde. I just suggest to cahnge an error on the name of franciscana dolphin (not french dolphin. It could be translates as La Plata River dolphin if you want. HOwever, this species is not possible to be observed from the coast, although it is present in the area. You can observe the bottlenose dolphin (locally named "tonina") and also southern rigth whales.

all the best!
