“You cannot leave Punta Arenas without visiting its tax-free area. If you have not been there, it means you have not been in Punta Arenas at all”, were the words pronounced by our guide when he told us about one of the maximum attractions in the city.

This fair or place of encounter is visited by almost 15,000 people every day, including both locals and tourists, who come along to enjoy the low prices and the excellent products for sale.

Located inside a 13-hectare venue, Zona Austral (Southern Zone), the Punta Arenas tax-free area, lies to the North of the city.

Likewise, the Zona Austral Shopping Mall operates inside the facilities. It includes over 80 stores and various services, among which gastronomy, Internet access points and several coffee-shops invite visitors to spend time more pleasantly.

But the important thing here is to buy. Visitors are lured by the tax free policies and see this location as the perfect shopping destination. They can buy tax-exempted goods for almost 1,200 Dollars.

Open 365 days a year to offer products from all over the world, and especially from the booming Asian market, Zona Austral never closes its gates.

While thousands of Chilean residents visit this place daily following a routine that includes buying, having lunch and buying a little more, foreign visitors wonder where all those bags come from until they find the answer to their question.

The stock is always enough, and there are usually must-buy offers that create a center of attention for many visitors.

Thus, this attraction and the multiple and varied tourist opportunities provided by this beautiful city are expecting all those who wish pay a visit and dare to get lost around its colorful small streets.
