One Full Day in Punta Arenas

Hello,

We will take a cruise and dock a full day in Punta Arenas

May I ask if anyone could advise us where we could find a quality tour to see around this area?

We try not to join the over priced Cruise Excursion.

We would love to see the local culture, and try the local fruits and foods

Thanks for your advise

I can't think of a tour company in Puntarenas but perhaps Iguana Tours can hook you up http://www.iguanatours.com/ They are based some distance south.

They are a great customer service oriented company, and many of my family have had success with them.

Hope you have a great cruise.

You can also check with king tours in Jaco, they might be able to set something up for you or just come out and take one of the red taxis with yellow triangles and the driver can give sugestions take you to the local market etc

Calypso is a great option...they offer some roads trips...or they can direct you in the correct direction with the correct people!

You can even have a rent a car waiting for you and drive towards MAnuel Antonio...is about 2 hours each way...you will see a lot...stop by Tarcoles river bridge...and see the wild crocodriles...incredible number of them most of the time...and if you like some nice short hikes...take a hike at Carara National Park...just next door to Tarcoles river bridge ...great chances to see wild Red Scarlet macaws!

We also cruised into the area, and used Odyssey Day Tours. They were excellent, had a bunch of different options, and were very reliable. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. My review is "Odyssey does a fabulous job" at tripadvisor.ca/ShowUserReviews-g309287-d1490…

Enjoy!
