El Calfate Day #2 -- Sleeping In & a Real Meal

A travel blog entry by lewnwdc

I couldn't make it to visit Glaciers National Park today, so I slept in, had a nice filling lunch, and relaxed at my hotel/hostel in El Calafate before heading to the airport for my flight to Ushuaia.

Yesterday I had one of the worst days of travel ever, including a hellish transit through the Buenos Aires Ezeiza International Airport and …

El Calafate Day #1 -- 100% Misery & Agony

A travel blog entry by lewnwdc

I suffered through an enormously miserable afternoon in El Calafate, a stopover I had planned en route from Bolivia to Antarctica so I could visit Argentina's Glaciers National Park. But I would never make it to the glaciers. Despite having more than 24 hours here, the transportation and currency-exchange options proved to be impossible and …

The last leg of my journey from Santa Cruz, Bolivia, to El Calafate, Argentina, consisted of a spectacularly scenic flight from Bariloche into El Calafate on a beautifully sunny day over the southern Andes Mountains.

Aerolineas Argentinas Flight 1692 arrived 38 minutes late into BRC from EZE at 11:23 a.m. A flight attendant announced that …

On the growing glacier

A travel blog entry by killerchicas

it took us around 20hours to get to el calafate. we travelled by bus
and boat. furthermore, we crossed the chilean border twice, which didnt
turn out to be the easiest procedure. one has to know that it isn't
allowed to bring in food into chile - although we didn't really stay in
chile for more than a few hours!

Due to the huge cost of flying between countries in this continent I was back in Argentina and back to Salta for a day, to make the most of the detour I hired a car with a group of girls from the hostel and went to Cafayate for one of the best lunch settings I've ever been to. Estancia de Cafayate out the otherside of town was a very posh golf …

    Good Location, Helpful Staff, But Poor Value for Money

    Staff was very helpful at this hostel/hotel located on the main avenue in El Calafate. Accommodation was basic and somewhat expensive, although I did stay during the peak summer month of January. Tip: It can be a better value to exchange dollars to pesos in cash at the front desk rather than using an ATM. Every ATM in Argentina seems to charge an outrageous fee of US$6+ to withdraw pesos, and when I was in El Calafate, the hostel/hotel offered a better exchange rate than the official bank rate. Finally, the hostel/hostel imposed a ridiculously early 10 a.m. check-out time even though my flight wasn't until 4:05 p.m.

    Very clean, very nice staff, big rooms with lockers.

    A bit pricey but you need some comfort after 5 day trekking....
