Want to see 2011 Superbowl in Punta Arenas

by SEVendt

We are two huge Packers fans who will be in Punta Arenas during the Superbowl. Does anyone have any ideas on how we could see this game? Thanks!

iF YOU ARE HUGE pACKERS FANS, YOU BE IN dALLAS AT THE GAME, but where ever you are you can just go to a major chain hotel and plop their and watch the game. Go to the hotels first to see if they will be broadcasting them first. Next is the sports bars or bars..good luck
GO PACK GO
cheers tommy x

Hey Tommy, did you look and see where exactly Punta Arenas is? Chain Hotels....?? Sports bars....??

The list below is of the likely places where you might catch the game. The largest hotel in the area that might carry the game, would be the Hotel Diego de Amagro, although it is not a guarantee.

You may want to check American expat websites in Chile. I did not find a specific Punta Arenas site but there are a number of web sites for Asmericans living in Chile. Here is one, but google "Chile American expats", and you will se several others.

You may want to log in and ask the same question. Not sure this is of help to you, but worth a try. Oh by the way, - GO STEELERS!.....heh heh.....d:o)

This would be Punta Arenas Costa Rica odinn. I thought it was pretty civilized,
but you mention Chile, I haven't been there. Nothin south of the border of Panama... Yeah, I had to look it up, there is a Punta Arenas in Chile. If I was a true Packers fans I wouldn't have left the states. A team , a town, a title. Maybe they have to go to Punta Arenas Costa Rica. Any how there has to be a hotel or restaurant with satelite hook ups somewhere. I was in the far east watching the super bowl a few years ago. The party started at 8am...I was the only one there until half time, two other people showed up. the party was a bust, after the half time highlight of Janet Jacksons mis-dress, it was over..don't even remember who played. Well Odinn, I hope you can hook them up in Chile..sorry pay

cheers tommy x

Odinn............I do see that they have cable TV at the web site of the hotel you suggested and there is a Best Western in town also....surely someone will have it... I know that there are many American expats in Costa Rica...some of them are trying to get me to retire out there.

cheers tommy x

Re: Want to see 2011 Superbowl in Punta Arenas

by Odinnthor

Yes Tommy, this Punta Arenas is at the southern tip on Chile. Likely will need a statellite hookup, - don't think cable is enough, but worth a shot.....d:o)

Re: Want to see 2011 Superbowl in Punta Arenas

by Odinnthor

Pretty sure that the one in Costa Rica is a "Puntarenas", not Punta Arenas......

Re: Want to see 2011 Superbowl in Punta Arenas

Travel Tips for Punta Arenas

Camera crew

by kyoub

Everywhere that we went in or around the city we would see this camera crew.
We got very curious as to what they were doing.
Finally got the chance to ask one of them.
They were from Holland and were here filming a documentary about Chile.
It is to air in March of 2005.

Way South of the Beaten Path-- Antarctica

by Ekahau

This is where the Presidente Eduardo Frei Montalva - permanent station of Chile, Antarctica is supported and is the point you leave from by air to get to Antarctica from. Well this is way of the beaten Path but from this place you can fly to President Frei Base on the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula. You see I was here looking at Medical support for a Trans Antarctica expedition. This is really on King George Island, just off the Peninsula , the little town that supports scientific researchers is Villa Las Estrellas this is , one of only about 70 scientific posts built by 2 dozen different countries on nations on the Antarctica

Tours of Chile and Fildes bays with it penguin rookery, and walks through Villa de Las Estrellas, the main population center in the area, are some of the activities that visitors can do.

Only a few hours away from Punta Arenas -- down one day over night and back the next. Cool ya,

DAP the Airline base in Punta Arenas office is at 891 O´Higgins 891 St.

Punta Arenas - Chile

Cementerio

by kyoub

Many of the city's early settlers are buried here in Mausoleums.
Wool baron Jose Menendez has an extravagent tomb here
The headstones are among the topiary cypresses in the walled municipal cemetery..
It is an easy walk from the plaza but you may spend hours here looking around.

Museo Regional de Magallanes

by vtveen

This Historical Museum of Magallanes is located in the Braun-Menendez Mansion, which is surrounded by a city garden with lots of trees. The ‘palace’ now is a national monument and is situated very close to the Plaza de Armas.

Both families Braun and Menendez were dominating the area through the ‘Sociedad Explotadora de Tierra del Fuego’, famous for exporting wool all over the world. The headquarters of this company and the mansions of the owners (Braun and Menendez) were in Punta Arenas.
In the museum we got a glimpse of the wealth and way of living in the first half of the 20th century. it is possible to visit some private rooms (bedroom, dining room and sitting room) with furniture and paintings, historical objects, illustrations, maps and pictures. Also about the history and colonisation of Punta Arenas and the area.
The museum also has a (small) gift shop and tearoom.

Opening hours Oct/April:
Monday - Saturday: 10.30 am - 5 pm
Sundays and public holidays: 10.30 am - 2 pm
Entrance fee: 1000 Chilean pesos

Fort Bulnes

by Ekahau

This part of deep South of Chile is to Chile what say the wild west was to the USA. That being the case Fort Bulnes is to Chile what say Fort Apache or an even better example would be Fort Snelling was to the USA as the West first opened up. Here is where in 1843 The Government of Chile built this fort as their foothold on the Straits of Magellan.

For those of you Vters with an interest in history the President of Chile at the times was O'Higgins an Irish-Chilean and the head of the Southern thrust was John Williams and English Chilean.
