USHUAIA EXPECTS 70 THOUSAND TOURISTS BY CRUISES THIS MONTH
About 70 thousand tourists will visit Ushuaia this month on board 72 cruises, although for the whole summer is expected the landing of some 290 such ships in the port of the southernmost city of world, informed today the Fueguino Institute of Tourism INFUETUR.
These numbers and perspectives keep the capital of Tierra del Fuego as one of the country’s greatest attractions for international tourism during the summer season, Laura Gonz˜lez, Secretary of Internal Policy for that province, told Tlam. Many of those cruise tourists have already spent the Christmas and New Year holidays in Tierra del Fuego, while others only spend a few hours in the city, but all “consume products from the area,” he said.
This is “very important also from the cultural and economic point of view, and generates many opportunities and movement of currency,” she added. With an average temperature that reaches between 15 and 20 degrees Celsius during these days, the Fuegian capital receives in summer numerous tourists from Europe, Brazil and Asia.
