just wanted to post an answer to a question somebody asked me asking how i arranged the transportation to club andino.
i was in punta arenas 3 days, and then met up with my family and joined princess cruise, outside of the cruise port, there will be tons of taxi drivers willing to drive u, make a deal with them , i had one guy take us to the ski lift club andino, then to the pinguinera, and then walk very little with my family around town and it was time to go back to the ship. we had 4 adults in the car and paid $120, but i know chileans who were visiting and at the cruise from valparaiso, that paid $90 for 4 adults.
it is very cold eventhough it is summer in january, and felt like it rained everyday.
the pinguin tour offered by the cruise is to magdalena island, which takes 2 hours to go and 2 hours to come back and at the time it leaves during the day u can only go there via the cruise, since the only boat on the island is chartered by princess cruise,
and they do charge 4 times more than the actual price if u took it at 5 pm, but u can't do this if u on a cruise, i was in punta arenas for 3 days so did the tour at 5 pm , that comes back at 11 pm, but is still daylight since we are in the south pole and is summer in january there.
