Shops, restaurants, coffee and ice cream parlors... all can be found here. Loads of souvenirs and sports stuff so yes touristic but the vibe is really nice. Definitely liked it!

Agree with fellow travelers that it is a touristy main street, but so what!?! Go for a walk and support the local economy. I tend to buy very few things, small things, particularly silver jewelry with local stones when I travel and there are some...More

This is what I'd describe as a small sleepy town and there isn't much of an atmosphere. Everything seems to be catered towards tourists. But luckily they have great restaurants away from the main drag. It's good to get the essentials.

Nothing really special here. It's the main street in town. Go here if you want to eat, but there are restaurants not on this street. Not a bad street, just not remarkable either. Typical street with shops and restaurants.

Nothing especially good or bad about here. Loads of shops selling tourist junk but lots of good hiking gear if you forget anything. Lots of stray dogs up and down but they don't hassle anyone.

The main avenue in El Calafate where you will find restaurants, banks, souvenir shops, markets, bars, entrances to the Argentinian Lake, many expedition companies, etc. Nice to have a walk on it.

Downtown El Calafate isn't the highlight of the region. The Avenida is full of restaurants, bars, shoppings, typical of a touristic city, almost designed in a fake "Disneyland"-style, like it or not... if you're looking for authenticity you'll be disappointed.

I really enjoyed walking this street. There are many restaurants and shops along the way plus parks and the national park visitors center. Also, some of the side streets are enjoyable as well.
