Map of Port Stanley, Falkland Islands
I LOVED Port Stanley. For a special and unique "souvenir" I stopped in at the local police station and asked for a driver's license. The license itself is a big sheet of paper with photo and vitals - for a bit extra they throw in a wallet-sized version (all-told around $50). It took around 30 minutes and is good for life. Warning: the local banks won't accept U.S. dollars that have been "defaced" (that's ANY marks, ink pen scribbles, stamps, etc.). This causes local stores trouble - they want your dollars but don't want to get stuck with bills the banks won't accept.

The 4x4 land rover ride was VERY rough to get to the penguin. My 80 year old back didn't enjoy it. However, once to the penguin colonies and the homemade treats....well, I'd do it again.

Excellent. A long tender ride in and out 20 minutes each way. Tip. Get up VERY EARLY and que for tender place. Wonderful museum and memorial. Only visited Stanley town but great people and nice to get a greater understanding of their way of life and connection with the UK. Had about 5 hours there. As Cape Horn is not mentioned in this review I will state my disappointment that we did not go around Cape Horn as I was hoping. Captains call. If he didn't go around on this trip he NEVER will! Windy but the size of the ship should have been able to manage the seas with ease. Mind you I wasn't responsible foe 1200 people.

We visited the penguins by jeep on an off road excursion - very cold but lovely.

Easy to walk around the town of Stanley to get an appreciation for the island and experience the various weather changes that can take place within a few short hours. Visit the Historic Dockyard Museum. Also, must visit the The Falkland Collection Souvenir shop located on the museum grounds. You must take time to speak with the owner whose is all knowledgeable about the Falklands.
