Typical tourist street filled with restaurants, bars and chocolate shops. There are also shops for souvenirs or for clothing in case you didn't bring proper clothing with you for trekking or being exposed to the winds. Nothing special on this street.

Much of what El Calafate has to offer can be found on this street or off its side roads. Lots of activity, noise - and street dogs, particularly the ‘gang of five’ we spotted regularly.

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.
