The Cañadón Pinturas entrance offers over fifty kilometers of self-guided trails, making it a great spot for observing wildlife. It also serves as one of the entrances to the Cueva de las Manos archeological site and provides accommodations such as an ecolodge, campsites with amenities, parking, and a grocery store.

Perito Moreno, located on the RN 40, is a convenient stop for refueling, shopping, and accessing an ATM. Before visiting the Cueva de las Manos park, we recommend a visit to the Carlos Gradin Archeology Museum, which provides an excellent introduction to the region’s first hunter-gatherers’ way of life. You can also check out the famous Cafe Iturrioz located in the beautiful Iturrioz building, where you can enjoy a drink at the bar and explore the art exhibitions frequently held there.
