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.

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.

Princess should investigate the excursion vendors further before planning an excursion. The speedboat to see the penguins were unprepared for rough weather. Their dock was in disrepair and dangerous.
