Ushuaia for Xmas

It appears as if there may be more than just a few Motorcycle Travellers in Ushuaia for Xmas.
Is there any particular area of town, hotels, etc. where motorcycle travellers tend to gather or stay?
Some information that might make it a little more convenient to visit/gather for a few s.

Till Xmas

Cool

Here are a couple of shots at Bahia Lapatia on Christmas Day, taken after 8.30 in the evening. (because you do not have to pay to enter the park - after 8.0pm.)

X-Mas or New Year

I'll be heading to Ushuaia coming from Santiago around that time. Unfortunately I have only 3 weeks this time round and was wondering what's better, the x-mas or New Years party?

Any past experience?

Cheers

Thumbs up Xmas or New Year

Last year both were much the same, some travellers left just after christmas, others arrived, but most of us left just after new year.
NB. : Christmas meal - Argentinian style is celebrated on Christmas Eve.

Cheers Alec,

Which one are you?

Looks like it was warmer for New Year???

I guess I just have to work out a round trip and then see which way around it fits better

Cheers

Jens
