A new addition to our list of recommended hosterías in El Calafate, Blanca Patagonia is a cosy and welcoming 12-bed B&B located on the way out of El Calafate. While the location on the edge of town may not suit everyone, for us the sweeping lake views and quiet position more than make up for this.
Patagonia and the White Continent
In the buzzy Palermo Hollywood district of Buenos Aires, Hotel Clasico is a great option for those wanting a comfortable and well-located base for exploring Buenos Aires. Its modern design and close proximity to a number of good restaurants make it an easy hotel to recommend for anyone looking for an inexpensive option in one of the best areas for nightlife.
Tierra del Fuego
Set at the end of the Earth, the Tierra del Fuego, or “Land of Fire”, has always captured the imaginations of those that have visited. Set right on the Beagle Channel, Ushuaia, one of the two important towns in the province, is steeped in the history of adventurers and pirates who used it as a means of rounding the Horn. Today, the town is used as a base for Antarctic expeditions and as an adventure playground for those looking for an active holiday in Argentina.
El Calafate and El Chalten
Possibly the most famous area of Argentina, El Calafate, and the neighbouring El Chalten, sit right on the edge of the Southern Ice Field, the second largest body of ice on the planet. Recently the area has seen a huge surge in interest (due, in part, to the presidential legacy of the Kirchners) with new hotels and facilities springing up all over the place.
One of the most vibrant and beautiful cities anywhere in the world. At around 12 million inhabitants, Buenos Aires features a rich array of cultures, foods, architecture and nightlife, and is a must see on any trip or honeymoon to Argentina. A few of our favourite things to do in Buenos Aires include exploring the famous Recoleta cemetery, going to see a Boca Juniors football match, wandering through one of the many weekend markets and generally gorging on the fabulous steak and wine, with the bustle flowing past.
