This is what I'd describe as a small sleepy town and there isn't much of an atmosphere. Everything seems to be catered towards tourists. But luckily they have great restaurants away from the main drag. It's good to get the essentials.

Nothing really special here. It's the main street in town. Go here if you want to eat, but there are restaurants not on this street. Not a bad street, just not remarkable either. Typical street with shops and restaurants.

Nothing especially good or bad about here. Loads of shops selling tourist junk but lots of good hiking gear if you forget anything. Lots of stray dogs up and down but they don't hassle anyone.

The main avenue in El Calafate where you will find restaurants, banks, souvenir shops, markets, bars, entrances to the Argentinian Lake, many expedition companies, etc. Nice to have a walk on it.

Downtown El Calafate isn't the highlight of the region. The Avenida is full of restaurants, bars, shoppings, typical of a touristic city, almost designed in a fake "Disneyland"-style, like it or not... if you're looking for authenticity you'll be disappointed.

I really enjoyed walking this street. There are many restaurants and shops along the way plus parks and the national park visitors center. Also, some of the side streets are enjoyable as well.

Avenida Del Libertador is the Main Street that runs through El Calafate. It has everything you'll need, from restaurant to Coffee shops, souvenir shops, banks, petrol stations, bakeries and even a casino!

This is the main street of El Calafate where all the tour agencies, restaurants, and supermarkets are located. I recommend everyone to get a hotel near this street so that you can access to the resources easily.
