  • The cemetery is a recommended by the residents of Punta Arenas. It may seem strange, but if you will find a place with a lot of history and also beautiful. The treatment of the cemetery is as a tourist place, so people are not offended with the visitors not mourners and observers. The landscape, is also quite impressive. 100% recommend to those who enjoy museums and history.

Where to stay in Punta Arenas

Punta Arenas boasts a huge selection of hotel options within its bustling sprawl, which range from low-key restored manors and homes to modern lodges and high-rises packed with amenities. You'll find an array of mid-range accommodations in the city's downtown area, within a few blocks of the waterfront and river. This gives you easy access to many of the city's most popular attractions and places to visit. However, Punta Arenas features very few true budget accommodations due to the large tourist industry and huge influx of cruise ship passengers that frequent town.
