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.

  • It is a beautiful Avenue; There are good restaurants and cafes. The buildings are very peculiar ground floor houses the vast majority. A very nice place to stroll. The building of pharmacy is very nice for pointing out some. Very commercial.

  • Very nice Avenue where the city's services are concentrated. Struck by the amount of products made from Calafate (marmalades and liquors mainly)... But in another province! Don't be fooled, I recommend you go to the place of Sr Echeverría, next to the Museum of the toy. Hence they do have local and genuine products.

  • Very good bar. Is minus 15 degrees! You can enter with minors... ideal for a drink for the cold!

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.
