A great place to visit....

For those who wants to see glaciers, do some trekking...El Calafate is the main city. From there you can get to the Perito Moreno glacier, and also take buses to other cities such as El Chalten, Ushuaia or to Chile, in Puerto Natales. The city is very very beautiful as well, and there are lots of places to see, accomodation and food isn´t a problem either. They have a great structure for tourists...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Very organized town...with a nice landscape
  • Cons:Unfortunately, it is not close to my house! hehe
  • In a nutshell:A "must go" for those visiting Patagonia
  • Last visit to El Calafate: Oct 2003
