Visiting Punta Arenas in Chile

By Paige, Nicaragua, August 2012

No reviews, be the first!

The southernmost city in the Americas, Punta Arenas, Chile is seen by most travelers as merely a gateway to the Antarctic. But this convenient town at the Chile’s glacier carved tip, overlooking the Straits of Magellan, has plenty to recommend.

The hard-working, hard-playing port town is the capital of Chile’s southernmost administrative division, Magellan and Chilean Antarctica, built on the oil and fishing industries. But it is also your first stop en route to Tierra del Fuego and several spectacular cruises. There’s plenty for travelers to do in and around town, so plan to stay a while.
