Punta Arenas Chile 5 Apr 2010
Punta Arenas is a Chilean city of 130000 in the Straits of Magellan. We will use tenders to get to port beginning at 730am and we must be back by 630pm. We plan to leave the ship around 930am and arrive in port by 1000am. We should give ourselves 6 hours to ride around town and be back by 4-5pm. We plan to ride the beach route north for several miles past the hippodrome horse race track and the University of the Magellans. We will turn around after 15 miles if something has not stopped us before that.
The city has a history that dates back to the 1830s and many cultural sites. We would like to return to the city after a 3 hour ride and have lunch before going to one of the historical museums to spend an hour or two.
Good luck to all. The links above mention a few restaurants that we will consider.
