  • Pretty nice place with shops and bars. Crafts and local sweets. Good beer and empanadas. There's a bar at the top but we did not always have enough people.

  • Ideal for walk awhile. There are several business gifts and crafts. There is also a bar. The decor is very nice. It is in the Centre, along the main avenue.

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.
