May 1st, 2018 Brush Memorial Park

Still open and a great option! Free the first night and then $20 for the 2nd night and so on. Clean bathrooms and showers, electricity and water. Nice and quiet. :)

April 29th, 2018 free parking city park

Great big parking lot with plenty of security lights. There are trees for shade in certain areas. Police drove by several times but never stopped. $11 Uber ride to French quarter or a 1 hour walk. Nice find.

April 27th, 2018 Franck Butler Park West boat ramp

Really nice, quiet spot. The toilets seem to be open 24hours and they are super clean! The sheriff looks like he might live at the house at the end. No one bothered us. Perfect place to camp!

March 3rd, 2018 Ose

I wasn't able to find this place.

March 3rd, 2018 Free Wifi

March 3rd, 2018 Museum/Wifi

We didn’t go in the museum it was closed but the WiFi worked really well from outside!

March 1st, 2018 Park Next to Casino

We were here during the busy season. We were worried we would have to leave because of all the people, but we didn’t! No one bothered us and it was an actually really quiet night. The toilets at the bus station were open until midnight. Awesome town!

February 27th, 2018 Parque Abrazo del Solis Grande

An amazing campsite indeed! There is a height limit to go under the bridge of about 3meters to get to the best camp spots. But if you can’t fit under the bridge there is camping closer to the highway. Great for tents, roof tops tents, everything! Recommend!!

February 27th, 2018 water tap at the park

Yep! Good tasty water!...just adding 40 characters.

February 26th, 2018 Beach-side parking with public toilet

We stayed here during busy season and on the weekend and it was actually really nice! Not too crowded and not very loud after 11pm. Highly recommend.

February 26th, 2018 Free WiFi!

Fast free WiFi at the ANCAP fuel station

February 23rd, 2018 Cheap hair cut L’Oréal salon

Got my hair cut here! The lady was so funny and friendly. Could not understand a word of her castellano! She cut my hair for 100 u.pesos. Highly highly recommend.

February 22nd, 2018 Camping Municipal

Nice camping area with grills and electricity, but it is next to the highway so it can be loud at night. Only 1 other overlander here during the week. The owner, Cacho says that the price is strictly voluntario. We paid 100 pesos for one night for 2 people and a truck. There is potable water behind the bathrooms.

New update! Bathrooms are finished! There are showers available now! 50pesos if you don’t buy fuel and 10pesos if you do buy fuel. WiFi works and is average.

February 14th, 2018 Capri Hotel and YPF

Delete previous comment. Checked into wrong place.

February 14th, 2018 Capri Hotel and YPF

The women’s shower is closed and we couldn’t find the men’s? Maybe it’s behind some locked doors that we couldn’t see? I don’t know. Better luck to you.

February 12th, 2018 Camp At Lago Escondido

Very beautiful campsite indeed! Lots of places between the trees and next to the water. Unfortunately we were here on a Sunday and it was insane so we did not stay here.

February 11th, 2018 La Casa de los Mariscos

Seafood is good but the portion size is super small for the high prices. We were disappointed with our end of our journey celebration dinner. The service was poor and it seemed like they just wanted to capitalize on tourism and not care for the actual people.

February 11th, 2018 Ushuaia city overlook

Big grassy field with a beautiful view of Ushuaia from a short distance away. Lots of locals until the sunset and then we were alone for the rest of night. One car pulled up with loud music but left after one song. Highly recommend for watching the sunset and the view of the city at night! 👍🏼

February 8th, 2018 Municipial Campground - Free

Several spots all with asado grills and a nice playground for kids. We came here on a Wednesday and were alone until 7:30pm when 3 cars showed up blasting music and having a bbq. luckily they left by 10:30pm but of course they left all of their garbage just like the crowds from the weekend before. The place is littered with bottles and cans. If you need a place to stay during the week this is an ok option but on the weekend it is probably out of control.

February 6th, 2018 Car Park near Ferry Terminal

If you don’t have to stay here then don’t. There were semi trucks loading and unloading at 3:00am! Tons of traffic showed up at 7am to que up for the ferry. The bathrooms were open in the morning but there was a huge line. But it’s free!

January 31st, 2018 Free WiFi - ZONA CHILEGOB

WiFi is actually pretty fast. We were able to skype with it!

January 29th, 2018 Small Gas Station

We asked really really nicely and they said they don’t have showers :( the toilets are open though.

January 28th, 2018 Centro de Informes de El calafate

The WiFi and the password still work! Pretty fast WiFi. We just sat in the parking lot and no one bothered us. Good find!

January 23rd, 2018 Old Private Gas Station

January 23rd, 2018 at the canyon road

Not a bad place. Pretty windy but died down at night. Yup, there are still dead guanacos.

January 23rd, 2018 Artisanal bakery

Amazing place! The lady who runs it so sweet and her prices are good, too.
