Punta Arenas for 1 night


Myself and 3 others will have a stop over in Punta Arenas on our way to Ushuaia. I know one day is not much time, but I was wondering if there is anything we could do before taking the bus to Ushuaia the following morning. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

thanks in advance,

Hi Shiviani,

Depending on how much time you have, there's a ton of things to do in and around Punta Arenas, such as:

1. http://naovictoria.cl/?lang=en -- full size replicas of Magellan's Victoria, and FitzRoy/Darwin's HMS Beagle, plus others. I don't know if the Beagle is completely finished yet -- it was still under construction on my last visit.

2. Museo Salesiano -- Includes the original cross over the grave of Pringle Stokes -- first captain of HMS Beagle. Do a google for "Museo Salesiano" plus "Punta Arenas" for details.

3. Municipal Cemetery -- one of the most beautiful in all of South America

4. Fuerte Bulnes, Port Famine (Puerto Hambre). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuerte_Bulnes
