We had 3 nights in El Calafate. Although the internet wasn’t great, the town was very cute. The hotel was about 10 minute walk outside of the center but it was charming walk into town. I think we really lucked out with the fall weather as we had sun most of the time we were there. It has been a little strange seeing the leaves changing color and falling.
The town consists of a main street with most of the shops and restaurants. There are a lot of dogs in town and they follow you for miles. I think we had around 5 dogs walking with us at one point. It was very hard for me not to go into the market and buy a bag of dog food. However, all of the dogs look very well fed and taken care of.
A lot of the restaurants have lamb over a fire in the window. The town was worth a visit and I would easily come back here. They say if you eat the calafate berry that you will return. Does it count that I had chocolate with calafate?
