Punta Arenas Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Rent a car at Punta Arenas Airport, head into the city, and make your first stop at the open-air Museum of Memories to learn about the history of Chile’s southernmost region. The Maggiorino Borgatello Museum is another great place to start; there you’ll learn about the region’s indigenous inhabitants. Then, head for the San Isidro Lighthouse as you take a walk along the Pacific Coast.

Join a tour to the beautiful and uninhabited Carlos III Island. You’ll get to do some whale watching on the way, if you’re lucky, and on the island you’ll find a lot of great hiking paths. When you’re back on the mainland, drive your rental to the Seno Otway Colony to check out the penguins. Some other areas to explore are Torres del Paine National Park and Rey Jorge Island Natural Sea Park.

Punta Arenas is a fascinating destination, but the real beauty of Patagonia is its wild nature. Why not continue exploring it with a longer term car rental deal? You can head north into other regions in Chile or east to Argentina, too. You can even pick up your rental car at Punta Arenas Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure today!
