We went two hours by ferry to Isla Magdalena where there are about 60,000 pairs of penguins. Very rough seas but it was worth it to walk amongst these fascinating animals

Gateway to Chilean Patagonia. Be sure to book wildlife tours - penguins and seals/sea lion colonies. Optional tours to Antarctica are prohibitively expensive - but after all - for me this was a bucket-list trip.

Liked it, but wish the guide had a voice box with us having the receiver. We couldn't always hear the guide. We visited the Bounty which Darwin sailed on (it was a full size replica) as well as two other ships. Would have liked to visit the museum longer.

No need for city tours. Everything is within walking distance. There is information office at main square. Saw everything we wanted to in a few hours and spent another few hours at hotel restaurant next to Sara Braun Palace. Drinks were strong. Service, food and internet was good. Chile also has strange rules regarding ATM withdrawals. Maximum withdrawal we found was 200000 pesos and there is 5000 peso fee.
