  • Is a well-kept square which has a playground for children and you can climb up the stairs and see the Lago Argentino. It's nice to go if you have time left.

  • The square is very tiny but charming. The trees are beautiful, very well cared for and is right next to the first house built in the city. It's worth sitting there a while and observe the movement of residents and tourists

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.
