I am trying to work out the difference in price. Does everyone know the most recent prices from the airport to El Calafate ?
There are two options to go from the local airport to the town
Round trip ticket ars 240 per person (in a bus) firstname.lastname@example.org
Round trip taxi ars 780 per person (in a private car max 4 peoples) email@example.com
Can I pay the shuttle bus by debit card??
Yes, you can pay by card in each and every stand located at the airport.
Transfer in minibus from your hotel to airport is $150ARS/person, taxi transfer is $350ARS for up to 4 people.
We opted for taxi transfer, only $50ARS more (for the two of us) than the minibus and it takes about 20 min as opposed to 30 to 40min, depending on the number of stops the minibus will make to collect all passengers.
This info is based on prices as of Feb 1st.
If I may I am now in El Calafate, so 170 Pesos one way with the Shuttle and 540 Pesos one way with Taxi, no matter how many people for the Taxi. I took the shuttle if you are not in a hurry. Enjoy El Calafate
This prices ar in argentinian pesos o debit card...they charge 10 % paying with credit card
Regrettably the tourist here in El Calafate are regarded as fair game for the rip off merchants. The local tourist authority need to take control, I for one would NEVER spend another day in this town.
To what place you would like to return?
