Uspallata Services

Despite its small size, Uspallata is rather frustrating to navigate. Streets were finally given names in 2008; however, street signs didn’t appear until 2009. Unfortunately, few buildings have posted street numbers, so directions often lead only to the nearest cross street.

The center of town is marked by the intersection of Ruta Nac. 7, Ruta Prov. 52, and Calle Las Heras. The four corners include the small tourist information office, an ACA service station, two pharmacies, and a casino. Directly behind the casino, on an unnamed side street, is the bus station. The bus station includes a small strip of shops, including the only laundromat, Lavandero Dover.

Rental equipment, including skis and bikes, is found behind the ACA service station. A number of companies operate on a seasonal basis from small buildings built around the large parking area.

Most businesses are found along Las Heras, which heads east from the intersection. The first block has several kioskos and an Internet café, while further down restaurants and small supermarkets begin to make their appearance.

ATM’s and basic banking services are available at Banco de la Nacion on Ruta Nac. 7. Continuing along the highway, visitors will quickly find a locotorio with cheap international calling rates. A block further away, traveler’s checks and money exchange services are possible with Western Union, located in the large Correo Argentino post office building.

Hospital Luis Chrabalowski is on a side street across from Plaza San Martin. The easiest way to reach it is to head down Ruta 7 to the police station, and turn north onto Calle Cerro Aconcagua.
