Ushuaia is a city known to have extreme climate changes over short periods of time. Instead of being something to worry about, allow it to brighten your day: you may be able to experience four different seasons in this wonderful city in only one day! Therefore, it is always recommended to wear water resistant shoes and a windbreaker.


Tourists must hold a valid passport with entrance stamp. Crewmembers of small expedition ships should have Shore Pass (Argentinean Identity Card). However, Ushuaia is a small town, so, in the very unlikely event of being requested to show an ID, any photo ID will work.

If you need to exchange currency, you can do so during banking hours (Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm) in banks and exchange offices located mostly throughout San Martín Street.
