Punta Arenas (16/18-Apr) - Travel around the world

Punta Arenas (16/18-Apr)

Before leaving Valparaiso, I spent a few hours in the nearby city of Vina del Mar... Not so much to say about the most famous beach resort of Argentina as I did not spend a lot of time there. Then I took the bus back to Santiago and spent the night in the airport before heading to Punta Arenas. Then in the morning I took the plane to Punta Arenas.

Then I took the bus back to Santiago and spent the night in the airport before heading to Punta Arenas. Then in the morning I took the plane to Punta Arenas. Punta Arenas lies just next to the famous Straits of Magellan (Magallanes in Spanish)... I cannot say it was very impressive as the opposite shore of the Tierra del Fuego is quite far away and therefore quite small. Still there was definitely some emotion to see these legendary straits and feel so close to the lengendary Tierra del Fuego. There were just a few big vessels crossing at that time. Otherwise in Punta Arenas, there's not much to see and I just took some time to rest in a nice and comfortable hostal and also prepare the follow-up of my trip. I was thinking about going to visit the isle of Magdalena which hosts a penguin colony but it appeared not to be the most appropriate time of the year to do so as the penguins do not stay on the island at this time of the year. In the end I rested for 1.5 days and got ready for my 12 hours bus+ferry trip to la Tierra del Fuego and more especially Ushuaia!
