Although you are going in the Southern Summer , Tierra Del Fuego and the adjacent Antarctic area are blighted by strong winds which can carry a high chill factor and frequently hail. Thermal t shirts and layers with a good waterproof and windproof jacket on top are essential. A warm hat to cover the ears and woolen gloves and thick socks and "sensible shoes". You may not need it all but you just might. If it rains it will be driven into every seam in your jacket therefore if you get wet try to stay out of the wind. Hope the weather is favourable for you.

It was very interesting to see at first hand what life is like there.Being on an escorted tour I was able to see the real Cuba. Not just a few nights in Havana and then spending the rest of our time on a beach. I visited Cuba in-land, I saw the farms, the tobacco and coffee plants and just how the real people...
