Puerto Natales has a very interesting origin story. Centuries ago, during the 1500s, Juan Ladrilleros set sail across the high seas in search of the Strait of Magellan. Ladrilleros hadn’t had much success throughout his journey. When he found a promising plot of land, he named it Última Esperanza, “Last Hope” in English. Many years after Ladrilleros founded Última Esperanza, Native Chileans and European immigrants would eventually occupy the land. In 1911, Última Esperanza would be renamed Puerto Natales.
Today, Puerto Natales is one of Chile’s most popular tourist destinations. Travelers come from all over the world to experience Puerto Natales’ beautiful scenery and rich culture in person. Museums and art exhibits allow guests to inundate themselves in Puerto Natales’ history. Theme parks and annual festivals encourage visitors to get active and participate in Puerto Natales’ customs. Puerto Natales is also one of Chile’s most important agriculture and cattle centers. It’s not uncommon to see herds of sheep and dozens of farmer's markets in the area. Overall, Puerto Natales has a very rural, small-town feel.
Most Chilean cities have fairly large populations. Puerto Natales is no different; in recent years, Puerto Natales’ population has surged to around 19,000 residents. Most of these citizens live within the city, while a comparatively small percentage (about 11% of the population) live in rural areas. Puerto Natales also receives hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. Some come from other Chilean provinces, while others hail from different countries.
