Say Hueque Tips
- Can I use my credit card while staying in El Chaltén?
This is a little village, so we recommend you take cash with you since ATMs are not usual, and the few they may be could be out of order. It’s better to be prepared! Though credit cards are accepted in Argentina, few grocery stores or restaurants may accept only cash.
