  • It is a small square at the beginning of avenida Libertador, with a staircase that takes you to a viewpoint. Not a big deal.

  • This square is located next to the tourist information centre of El Calafate. There's a gazebo overlooking the Lake Argentino, there is a playground, benches and restrooms. Ideal place for those who have small children.

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.
