  • the Marcopolo library in El Chalten is a wonderful surprise. Not very big, but rich in texts of local culture and history, fauna, flora, as well as literature. No shortage of beautiful calendars and notebooks. The owner is very friendly and willing to give advice. The environment is extremely pleasant. It's a pleasure to find good reads. In the book I'm reading now I bookmark Marcopolo library of El Chalten, just to remind you this magical place and its nice library

  • Buy a book to my niece but I discovered that they sell not only books but has a range of brochures, cards and even craft books for the traveler or super cute and made by its own owners agendas

  • At the end of the world, what a pleasure to spend some time in this real pretty bookshop held by a bookseller competent, friendly and speaking very well English and the french... Well news and the Fund in Spanish, you will find a good choice in french, in English, and probably to other languages (we did not watch), hiking maps, postcards, etc., and even an opportunity. One of the best places in El Chaten!

Where to stay in El Chalten

Thanks to the city's small size, almost all of the accommodation options in El Chalten are within easy walking distance of anything of note in town. Most "hotels" are in fact cozy alpine-style lodges catering to international visitors, and tend to be on the pricier side due to their upscale amenities. Alternatively, you can stay in one of the many campsites outside town, though weather here can be harsh. During the high season in January and February, you'll need to book at least a month or two in advance as lodging fills up fast. Keep in mind that El Chalten depends heavily on seasonal tourism for its income, and many hotels and lodges, particularly smaller, family-run affairs, close down during the winter off-season. On the flip side, many of those that remain open offer lower winter rates.
