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....

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

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

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 …

Patagonia awe!

At the start of this trip we had no intention of coming to Argentina, till every person we met told us we mad and that it was the best country in South America to visit. We then decided to add it onto the itinerary, but in order to do it any justice we had to obviously spend a reasonable amount of time there, which meant we had to extend our tic...
