Perito Moreno, sleepy and underwhelming, is the unexpected gateway to many wonderful sites, animals and stunning scenery in the NorthWest of Santa Cruz. Touted as a stop-over on the way between El Calafate/El Chalten and Bariloche,
I'm glad I decided to check out the Cuevas de los Manos.
The day I spent travelling to the Caves with a local tour company from Perito Moreno was delightful, seeing Guanacos and ostriches, and hiking through the striking CAÑADON DEL RIO PINTURAS to the Caves of the Hands (UNESCO World Heritage listed). It felt like a gateway, a perfect prelude to the caves, alive yet so still.
At the Caves, you have guided tours in English or Spanish, showcasing this UNESCO World Heritage listed site of ancient art and history on the rocks. The guides are passionate and dynamic about their site.
My guide spoke English as well as his native Spanish, and can cater for groups as well as individual travellers like me, and also organised my accomodation, assisting with my local travel. In retrospect, I would like to have stayed longer....
You can visit Cuevas de los Manos directly, however it is the tour companies that can take an average experience and make it excellent, suggest where else to go and organise where to stay....
