About Port Stanley, Falkland Islands

Port Stanley is the only town on the Falkland Islands, and though it has little more than 1,200 residents, it contains half of the islands' population. On the other hand there are 700,000 sheep, and a wonderful assortment of sea birds and elephant seals. Though subject to the British Queen, Argentinean claims to the "Islas Malvinas" caused war in 1982.

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.

Take the local private trip out to Volunteer Point if you really want to see the king penguins as this is an ideal place to see them.

Nice town to walk around. Would not waste money on internet as they charge $3/10 minutes for very slow internet. Did not think much of Gypsy Cove as you must stay on a path. Any penguins or sea lions are a good distance away. Get in line 45 minutes early if you want to be on 1st set of tenders. Many tours take several hours off road so best to be there early if you want to take tours.
