Well, it depends on your style. In January and February it is a party beach town with lots and lots of young people, think high school and college age. Loud, lots of energy, crowded beaches, and amazing weather. Almost all the tourism there is Argentinian, so if you want to immerse yourself in Argentinian culture, go for it. You would definitely get to practice your spanish. If you want something more low key, go in November and December, or in March. There is a forest that is nice for walking or slacklining, the beach is long with a nice boardwalk. Good vibes when it's not the busy season, but not a ton going on then. So, like I said, it depends on what you like. about 4 years ago
You don't need to book any bus tickets more than a few days in advance. It is cheapest and easiest to buy tickets at the bus station. That being said, you can find some itineraries on plataforma10.com, but keep in mind that this website does not have all routes, schedules and times listed. about 4 years ago

There is a great hostel in Puerto Natales that has any and all info and gear you will need. They guide as well. It's called Erratic Rock. I'm not sure if they are open in the winter, but it's worth reaching out to them. about 4 years ago
