  • I only saw her outside because it was closed, but its architecture is very cute. It made me remember in small a building I saw in Rotorua, New Zealand

  • Today is a Museum, but it tells the story of the first inhabitants of this city. It is worth visiting it

Where to stay in Ushuaia

Despite its nickname, Ushuaia is certainly not the end of the world when it comes to finding comfortable lodgings--as long as you plan ahead and reserve your room in advance. Hotels and hostels are equally crowded here during the peak season (October to March), so it's advisable to arrive with a solid reservation in hand. If you choose to visit during the winter (June to mid-September), expect to find many establishments closed for the season.
