  • Regardless of the historical permanence, time, today, no longer the same as when attending inhabitants stay pioneers. Those that began many years ago with collection of Whale bones and others. Today, is no longer an attraction in themselves in, to ntro. humble to understand for several reasons: is remote, and however that it is a step towards other points of interest stop, bears no great attraction in itself same. Before it was a place of shelter for the smaller vessels (by its small Pier, in protection of the recurrent, sometimes very strong winds), nor its attractions have increased mass interest, and in addition: charge entry quite expensive. Attention does not equal, employees / dependents who are there, are not lavish much on their host conditions, nor explain much, and are waiting to receive gratuity (tipping) a bit rudely. Namely, little to do, as when they were looked after by their owner. If you attend to see the "flag trees", Beagle Channel, port Almanza, etc.; yyyy pass, between and try, and see you as you're going, and judge if it is worth the trip. We've gone / last you a few times over the years, and it has been losing interest and quality. On the other hand, successive Governments of Tierra del Fuego, have also shown interest in developing the surrounding areas and other attractions (as it would be the continuation of the route that goes from Puerto Almanza to Ushuaia exit West) that completes a circuit Interestingly, without turning back along the same path. That if, still naming public employees to the highest rate in the country. Luck.

  • You have to hire a long excursion and pay a plus, which makes it expensive, but it's worth by its historical value and strategic location

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.
