Calafate in december is quite busy...so as soon as possible, do your hotel and flight bookings
BA also will be busy. Flights could fill up well in advance. I don't know about hostels, but boutique hotels will also fill up.
If I head down to Calafate for 3days/2nights, will I most likely stay in Calafate or is there time to head to Bariloche?
I would agree with the previous posters and book flights now. I had planned to book flights from BA to El Calafate for late November previously, but had not actually booked them because there was so much availability. Last weekend when I decided to book the flights on the Aerolineas website, all of the flight times that I had hoped to book were no longer available. Either I had to fly out at 5:40 am or 11:00 am and not make a 1:00 treck to the glacier. I was, however, able to book an 8:00 flight by booking through Cheapseats.com and paying a $20 booking fee.
December is bussy everywhere in Argentina. I agree. It's best to book in advance.
