I am Hotel La Yegua Loca. I live at foot of the iconic Cerro La Cruz hill, one of Punta Arenas most popular viewpoints. Deeply rooted in the area’s culture and customs I am an homage to my Patagonian ancestors. I welcome my guests with a warm smile and a feeling of the rural Patagonian countryside with my ranch house inspired design. Come and stay in one of my 15 boutique rooms, each one as unique as the last, all decorated with antiques typical to a specific trade. On clear days you can not only enjoy an incredible view over the seaside city but of the Strait of Magellan and Tierra del Fuego. My onsite restaurant serves some of the best food in Punta Arenas, if not all of Patagonia, highlighting the region’s most famous dishes. Enjoy a glass of red wine by the wood-burning stove before indulging on slow-cooked beef atop a delectable pumpkin puree. All of this and more is only a step away from your cozy room.
