TravelPod Member ReviewsLas Cabanitas El Calafate
Lovely cabins 2min walk from the bus station and Main Street. Breakfast was excellent and the owner asked us what time we wanted breakfast for which was so helpful as our last morning we had to leave early and still got breakfast. Wifi didn't reach our room but worked perfectly in the common area. I would highly recommend Las Cabantitas as a place to stay in El Calafate

Is the Argentine government attempting to stop a run on its currency when its known to fluctuate so wildly? It makes money on every one of these ...
... it was a family business, kids, parents, even the family dog was a presence even though he knew he wasn't supposed to be. The day of the main event arrived and thankfully so did the sunshine! The bus took around an hour weaving through the Patagonian landscape. It cost £15 to enter the park and there was an option of a boat tour around the glacier for another £20, which we took up. The boat was heaving! Everyone jostling to get photos, it calmed down after ...
... was kept wide open and I finally drifted off sometime after two.
My alarm went off at 6:30, and after a cheeky breakfast I was picked up from the hostel around 7. The bus ride into the national park took about an hour. About five minutes before we pulled into a carpark we swung around a vista which gave us our first glimpse of Perito Moreno glacier. I'd already seen the others pictures so knew what to expect, which in hindsight was a mistake, as I'd ...
