The closer you get to Ushuaia, the harder the weather will be. In the winter in Tierra del Fuego is harsh, although the temperatures don’t plummet. It’s colder than the actual temperature because of the strong and cold wind. Besides, the days are very short.

You can plan to stay an extra day in Sao Paulo and visit the city of Peru next door, two hours from Sao Paulo, where you can spend the day on the beach or visit the ruins of what is considered the first church built in Brazil in the 16th century. You might stop here on your way to Curitiba.

If you have a limited budget, you can stay in a common room in a hotel office, downtown about 100 meters from the Luz station. If you want a little better lodging, I recommend a motel villa where you pay a little more but stay in a private room with a private bathroom.
