Spanish Courses in Ushuaia
Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world, located on the shores of the Beagle Channel and surrounded by the Martial Mounts. Its superlative location allows you to enjoy the surrounding landscape with mixed sea, forest, glaciers and mountains in a small island. Besides, it is a great place for shopping: the whole island is a tax free zone, thus you can find lots of imported goods along with regional products. A fantastic and unique location to learn Spanish.
Another of Ushuaia’s attractions is the legendary Jail of the End of the World, now transformed into a museum (Museo del Presidio). A must visit, where there are even wax statues of the most famous criminals that were sent to that place. Also, do not miss the “Ferrocarril Austral Fueguino”, a.k.a. the Train of the End of the World which, along with the jail, constitutes an icon of the island. This railway’s history is, as almost everything in this city, linked to the prisoners of the mythical jail.
The land areas are scenic, the waters teeming with fish and marine wildlife. Summer is ideal for adventure tourism: Trekkers, mountain climbers, fishing fans, sailors and bikers will enjoy the challenges of Tierra del Fuego. You can even take amazing trips across the Beagle Channel, Cape Horn up to Argentine Antarctica.
