Punta Arenas

4
out of 5

Punta Arenas is a city of contrasts. From the high-end shops and restaurants of downtown, to the abandoned, crumbling buildings of the former company town of Puerto Natales, to the isolated farms and ranches in the surrounding countryside, the city encapsulates the extremes of life in Chile. The city is also the jumping-off point for trips to Torres del Paine National Park and Tierra del Fuego, and the gateway to Antarctica. With its many museums, including the world’s southernmost aviation museum, its lively nightlife, and its stunning location on the Strait of Magellan, Punta Arenas is a fascinating place to explore.
