Surprisingly large for the end of the world – but it looks like most residents didn’t come to stay. The town is ill-kept but friendly and fun. Try the Irish bar on the main drag on Friday nights in the summer when the cruise ships return from the Antarctic and the crew members get a night off.over 3 years ago

We went here for a day… it was mostly b/c I wanted to see the “end of the world” but it seemed like it had some cool things. First, the boat ride on Beagle Bay was cancelled due to the weather- supposedly, it’s amazing. Second, we went to the National Park and it was ok- very different that anywhere else I have been. I would suggest that if you go here to make sure you’re ok changing plans or doing nothing. It also seemed like the place to be if you’re a skiier or boarder but we didn’t have time for either. Coincidentally, we met 3 people in the first 10 min with broken wrists. If you’re up to chill and get away from it all and possibly get to see some beautiful things, this is the place for you. Personally, one day is about perfect.over 6 years ago
I thought Ushuaia was one of the best places I went to on my ship. Everything is the Southernmost whatever in the world. I went on a catamaran up the Beagle Channel (free excursion from my ship) and Tierra del Fuego National Park. I also did the train ride at the end of the world. Great excursions.
The main shopping street is lovely. Lots of parillas and souvenier shops. Cheap and good. If you are looking for Columbia jackets head into the camping/mountain store on the main drag (Popples??). I picked up a great jacket (can take the inner jacket out…so 2 jackets in 1) for $180US (not titanium, but the next one down).
The casino is BIZARRE.
I also went horseriding. I will leave the name of the place at a later date.. It was great.
This place is the gateway to Antarctica.
