Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
Stock on up souvenirs and trip essentials at Zona Austral, a two-level shopping center. This warehouse-style mall offers deals on a huge range of products like alcohol, clothing, knives, housewares, and artwork. Somewhat disorganized, the center can be overwhelming for visitors used to upscale malls. Children will enjoy the skating rink, and a handful of restaurants are available if you grow hungry during your bargain hunt. Most shopkeepers speak English, so feel free to ask questions about their merchandise. Make Zona Austral a centerpiece of your Punta Arenas vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Punta Arenas tour planner.

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.
