La sección de viajes del NYT incluye a las Islas Malvinas en una lista de lugares recomendados

Les soy honesto, me encantaría ir alguna vez:

The Falkland Islands

Despite tensions, development at Britain’s most remote outpost.

Eight thousand miles from London, the Falkland Islands are a cold, rugged Galápagos-like spot swarming with penguins, seals, whales and other wildlife. Over the last few decades, though, politics has trumped nature: more than 30 years since the Falklands War, tensions remain high between Argentina and Britain, especially with vast oil reserves now being explored offshore.

The practical Falklanders, though, are moving on, breaking ground this year on a Falkland Islands Museum as part of an overhaul and expansion of the waterfront in the capital, Stanley, along with considering new air routes. The Malvina House Hotel, Stanley’s largest, which doubled in size in 2010, has just expanded its harbor-view restaurant and will expand further to 70 rooms by early 2014. Come soon, though, as oil money rapidly transforms Stanley’s ethnic, economic and social character, driving development in this tiny, eccentric village of about 2,000 year-round residents.


  1. Y el resto de Argentina, en la lista de "ni en pedo vayan por allí"

    1. No lo sé, Andy. Yo anoté la zona de Québec que recomiendan. En Argentina hay lugares muy lindos también.

    2. Las sierras de Córdoba son hermosas.

    3. Comarca andina para mí, gracias.
