Travel Blogs from Ushuaia
Yesterday we arrived to Ushuaia, the southern city in the world aka The end of the world.

After saying our tearful goodbyes to Cat and Renae, we made our way to our hotel, Posada del Fin del Mundo. It was an interesting place.

TravelPod Member ReviewsLa Posada del Fin del Mundo Ushuaia
Breakfast was wonderful, better than most places we stayed in South America. Location was perfect for us, not in a busy area but only a 10-minute walk to the city center. Room was large with plenty of closet place. Room with toilet was added onto the building, so it got cold during the night. Price was appriopriate for the area. We would stay here again.
