Av del Libertador, El Calafate

3.4
One of the city's main arteries, Av del Libertador was built in 1885 to ease the rapidly growing center's congestion problems. The 7 km (4.5 mi) avenue connects the central Retiro station to Tigre in the north, via the desirable neighborhood of Palermo. Walk down the avenue at your own leisure, stopping along the way at one of many cafes and restaurants for refreshments. You can also find plenty of shops and travel agents along the street.

  • AV. del Libertador is the main avenue of Calafate. There you will find everything: banks, market, excellent restaurants, cafes, Museum, Casino, many travel agencies, shops, crafts, and more. There are many dogs that roam the sidewalks, but are harmless and do not disturb anything. Getting around there is very nice. I loved it and recommend it.

Where to stay in El Calafate

El Calafate offers abundant lodgings, from budget-friendly guesthouses to four-star hotels. Top beds sell out well before the peak season (October to April, and especially December to February), so it's a good idea to reserve in advance if you plan to visit during that time. Spontaneous travelers without prior arrangements can look for youth hostels, many of which are located just outside of town. To stay in comfort without burning a hole in your wallet, consider vacationing here during the low season, when most hotels offer deep discounts.
