“Can't miss it while in the port...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

Loved the cement casting that outlines the islands, very strong statement that again tries to tell its people and tourists that the Falklands are "Argentinian".

“Plaza Malvinas”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

Very touching memorial to the "Falkland Invasion". Very human.
Not well advertised, remote...stumbled on to it because I am a wanderer.
Peaceful location on the harbor.

“Average crafts with just OK prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013

This is located right to your left near the taxi stand leaving the dock. The booths have pleasant handicrafters who can show you their wares. They were not negotiating the day we visited and thus we did not buy anything.

A tpi is to trade your Euros or Dollars for Argentine Pesos on the street near most tourist areas or bus/train stations - "Cambio?" That way you can get about $8ARP for $1USD instead of the official exchange rate of about 5. Most restaurants and gift shops will offer something in between for exchange.

“Alternative view of the Falkland Islands.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013

Having just visited the Falkland Islands as part of an Antarctic voyage, it was interesting to see this monument. It is rather non-descript, but worth seeing while you are wandering about in Ushuaia for its historical value, especially if you remember the 1982 war.

“Are you kidding me?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2013

I can't believe this is listed as an attraction! This "square" is more like a traffic island that you'll pass by and see (in passing) 500 times during your stay in Ushuaia. There's plenty of Malvinas stuff all around, not just this plaza. The Malvinas area big issue here so, if you want to make friends with the locals, don't call them the Falklands.
