Love Av deal Libertador, no traffic lights in the town at all. The street has lots of beautiful pines and poplar trees. The shows are directed at tourists, but this is their main industry. There are plenty of souvenir stores, variety of clothing stores, restaurants, chocolate shops, pastry shops, banks, it really has it all

The downtown and avenue is well kept...lots of shops...they specialize in homemade chocolate...delicious, restaurants, sporting equipment, souvenir shops, and some ...a few upscale craft stores. It is a one time shopping experience only...not that interesting, but nice and clean.

The main street of the village is full of coffees, restaurants and shops. Most of them extremely overpriced, but still it is a nice area to wonder around and get a local craft beer.

Unlike other cities in Argentina, and in spite of a total lack of traffic lights, drivers do not blow hors, respect pedestrians, who walk along enjoying the boulevard, sidewalk cafés, shops, or admiring the beautiful roses along the way.

You can't really avoid this street if you're a tourist in El Calafate. Pockets of this road were well visited with bright shops and restaurants, but in between were poorly paved sidewalks, dusty construction from buildings and the road, and the strong winds will get some of that stuff in your eyes. Members of our party tripped several times on... More

This avenue has the feeling of being newly-born. Everything is relatively new and clean. It is full of travel agencies and shops of different kinds: supermarkets, gifts, clothes and climbing equipment, regional products; you can get almost everything! Apart from lovely restaurants and bars of course! Nice for people watching and for feeling the pace of El Calafate.
