Customer Travel Tip: Go to the glacier. It's why anyone comes to El Calafate.

Liked: Nice little town with everything you need on the main street and the bus station just a few minutes from there. Not much to do in town itself but plenty of restaurant choice.

Disliked: ATMs were troublesome but that's Argentina in general.
