El Calafate

Vacations are all about taking it easy, although it can be nice to see a few sights while you're at it! You'll be able to do plenty of both in El Calafate.

It's an area of Santa Cruz that roughly 8,000 people live in.

This destination lies roughly 1,300 mile southwest of the national capital, Buenos Aires. It's also 30 miles east of Perito Moreno.

When the weather is fine, head over to Plaza de los Pioneros, one of the places where the locals come to spend time outdoors.

Gaze out over the still water, do some bird-watching and check for any water-based activities at Laguna Nimez and Argentinean Lake.

Walichu Caves and Upsala Glacier draw in many nature lovers. Stop by for a nice break from the noise and stress of the modern world.

For a taste of something more cultural, spend an afternoon at the Argentinian Museum of Toys or the Museo de El Calafate. Stroll through the rooms at you view the collections, or just snatch a moment of relaxation in one of the quiet nooks and crannies.

Travelers interested in the history of the natural world will love spending a few hours discovering the specimens and curiosities at the El Calafate Regional Museum.

View the interesting artifacts of the Calafate History Exhibition Hall or study the exhibits at the El Calafate Historical Interpretation Center. Both are great if you're interested in history.

If you are wanting to learn more about the local history, you might like to stop in at Puerto Irma Ruines and the Gnome Village.

Those with a fascination for religion should swing by Santa Teresita del Nino Jesus Church.

Many visitors have a terrific time at the Glaciarium. Calafate Fishing is also worth considering.
