Despite its growing population, San Rafaelâ€™s downtown area remains small and easy to navigate. Most services are located either on Hipolito Yrigoyen or within a few meters of its corner.
Banks and currency exchanges are found on Hipolito Yrigoyen, between Calles Nicolas Avellaneda and Gutierrez. The Banco de la Nacion (Hipolito Yrigoyen & Nicolas Avellaneda) and Banco Superville (Hipolito Yrigoyen 360) offer currency exchanges to non-clients along with the standard ATM service.
Internet cafĂ©s and telephone services are less frequent here than in most cities in Argentina, but two Telefonica Locotorios (Ballofet 13 & Hipolito Yrigoyen 332) offer access to both at affordable rates. The Correo Argentino office (San Lorenzo & Barcala) takes care of both western union and mail services.
Both the public Hospital T.J. Schestakow (Cte. Torres 150) and private Hospital EspaĂ±ol (El Libertador 950) offer good health care but English speaking doctors will be hard to find. Farmacia Florida (Hipolito Yrigoyen 290) and Farmacia Gil Centro (Hipolito Yrigoyen 377) are well stocked.
