FABIO'S REVIEW

Red-Living
Yellow-Visiting
i-1-TOURIST-TRAP-1
i-2-RETARDED-BACKPACKER-1

The city in itself has no particular interest: it only serves as a base for exploring the Tierra del Fuego. It is also overpriced due to the large amount of tourists visiting it yearlong (due to the "end-of-the-world" BS) I recommend you stay there as little as possible. If you want to stay in the area for an extended period of time, cross the border and stay in Punta Arenas.
