TravelPod Member ReviewsCabo de Hornos Hotel Punta Arenas
A central location but the lobby, bar and restaurant area do not really match the style of the rooms. The bar is chic and well designed with cool tables and a stone & hide decor. The rooms are fairly basic and the bathrooms jaded. The sushi was very good but the sharing platter was rather poor. Breakfast was cleared away with extreme promptness even though we were still eating.
Fine for one night but rather cold.

She had quite a bit of travelling experience, travelling alone through the whole of South America. So we stocked up quite a bit of cash once we found out how the machines work. At random that is.

This morning when we got up around 8:30 and looked outside, we sure were in the fjords and could see the mountains looming by our ship. The weather was still very cloudy, the deck was wet, so we're not sure what's ahead of us.
Went to Terry Bishop's lecture about Cape Horn at 10am - another very ...
... hours to the very north of the island and took a short 30 minute ferry crossing back to the mainland. The landscape is pretty bleak in this part of the world, but we did see guanacos, ñandus and foxes.
On the 2 hour drive back to Punta Arenas, we stopped at the oldest sheep estate in the area. After land division in '70s to workers, it was abandoned and now lies in ruins. We made it back to Betty's at 9.30pm, but being this far south it was still light.
... about a 1-½ drive to the colony over a rough, gravel road through some of the local Chilean farmlands. In the end, we did manage to see about fifty plus penguins in their natural habitat despite shipboard rumors that the little guys were not to be seen anywhere. There were only one species here, magellenic penguins but still it was nice to see these little guys waddle around by the ocean.
It was meant to be a ...
