    The lighthouse of Punta Delgada was built in 1905; it is 14 m high, and it is made of iron. It was built by the same firm that built the Eiffel Tower.
    At the base of the lighthouse begins a path that leads to a stairway made of wood, that ends at the beach.

    El faro de Punta Delgada fue construido en 1905; mide sólo 14 metros de altura y está hescho de hierro. Fue erigido por la misma empresa que construyó la Torre Eiffel.
    En la base del faro comienza un camino que conduce hasta una escalera de madera que termina en la playa.

    The southern elephant seals go by their reproductory season without eating; after it, they lose 40 % of their weight. When the reproductory season ends, they go back to the sea, to feed; they eat fishes and squids. The elephants are good divers: they can be diving for 2 hours, and reach a depth of 1.500 m.

    Los elefantes marinos pasan su período reproductor sin alimentarse; luego del mismo, pierden aproximadamente el 40 % de su peso. Cuando la época de reproducción finaliza, regresan al mar a alimentarse; se alimentan de peces y de calamares.
    Los elefantes son buenos buzos: pueden bucear durante dos horas y alcanzan profundidades de 1.500 m.

    Remember that you are in a very special place, at a very special moment; respect the elepahant seals, and do not disturb them; follow your guide advices; stay quiet and do not approach to the animals. As the quote says, take only pictures, leave only footprints.
