  • No doubt is a very nice and symbolic place in the heart of the city, with historical emblems like the statue of Magellan, with trees beautiful and surrounded by the main buildings of the city. If you go to the city of Punta Arenas you should not fail to visit.

  • A good place to wander on sunny days or with a little breeze. Touring attractions, depending on the time of year, but certainly there are December and in the summer is when most can take advantage of this space.

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.
