“Great main street...”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

El Calafate is quite different from many small Patagonia towns, as it is longitudinal along the Av. del Libertador, you get much more of a main street feel to it. And the added benefit of easier navigation and knowing where things are! Hope this review was helpful!

Reviewed November 28, 2013

“Town center”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

This is the heart of the town in El Calafate--the tourist trap basically where all the shops and restaurants are. Lots of roaming dogs whose owners let them loose but they are friendly dogs who know where the good restaurants are,too!

“the end of the world"”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

very tiny little 7 blocks or so...some shops..not much of coffee houses, just small shops..tours, chocolates ( many from Bariloche) its really small so do not expect to spend much time at the "center" just for a short walk...nothing much to do really ( if you are near there and est around recommend LA TABLITA crossing the bridge and LA LECHUZA) also posada LOS ALAMOS has a lovely small aerea to eat "cazuela de cordero patagonico" enjoy!

“The main drag in El Calafate, you cannot avoid it”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Our taxi driver informed us that Av del Libertador is the main street of El Calafate and he was right. The longish street is lined by mainly tourist shops and souvenir shops. There are a few banks with ATMs as well but your card may not work in all the ATMs. Virtually all the restaurants are on this street as well. If you don't want to eat at your hotel you will have to come here. Just about every restaurant will offer you Parilla, barbecued meat and it is an interesting sight on this street.
