Under $100 / South America

If the cold does not bother you, a trip to the southernmost city on the planet could be just the adventure you are looking for.


Ushuaia is located on the tip of Tierra del Fuego and provides an excellent and scenic backdrop for visitors and residents alike. The town is located between mountains, sea and forests, making it uniquely suitable for outdoor adventures. Begin your trip by securing a place to stay. Ushuaia’s location off the beaten path means you will want somewhere to stay when visiting the town.


Start your day by waking up at Monaco Hotel. The $40 accommodations will get you set for a day exploring the town.


Take your time waking up and get ready for a mid-morning brunch at Tante Sara Cosas Ricas. Brunch, available on weekends and holidays, combines menu items from the regular breakfast and lunch menu for an affordable dining experience. If you are visiting on a wee day, the regular breakfast menu is affordable as well.


After your late breakfast, follow this guide to go on a self-guided tour of the town. Soak up the views of the small town while you become acquainted with the town’s soul. After you are done wandering the town and working up an appetite, get ready for a great lunch at Ramos Generales.


After lunch, take a tour of Ushuaia’s Jail and Maritime Museum. Admission costs about $15, and you can learn all about Ushaia’s history of colonization.


After a few hours of learning about Ushuaia’s history, stop by Bodegón Fueguino for a satisfying, but affordable, dinner. The restaurant’s atmosphere goes to great lengths to maintain a historic atmosphere.


Ushuaia has a lot to explore, so if you don’t feel satisfied, consider staying longer and engaging with the southernmost city on the planet.
