The stay here (in 2013) was really exciting for us as it allowed the best approach to the cueva, a good nights sleep then drive to a fantastic walk across the valley to the cueva on the other side. This was one of the best things I did on the trip, this walk - and the hostel as the base...

This is a very basic hotel. Only one hour electricity during diner. Rooms are poor. People friendly and helpful. So bring a torch with you to use in the little bathroom. Food and beverage is ok. Hotel well situated to visit the caves. It's very quiet and very Patagonia.

Wanting to see the remote UNESCO site Cuevas de las Manos, in Patagonian Argentina, we had to find a place to stay. The choices were one of several down-at-the-heel hotel in the small town of Perito Moreno, 60 kms away, or Estancia Cuevas de las Manos, close by the Cuevas site. Until recently, this was a working estancia, or ranch....

This is still a working estancia but the owners no longer live here. The estancia now has a common den area, lobby and dining area, and about 15 rooms. My room was very clean and comfortable and had obviously been recently renovated. There is no central heating but they will light a register for you if you feel cold. It...

This hotel is not located where Google Maps places it (not near Cueva de las Manos). You need to drive 70km North on Ruta 40 from Bajo Caracoles, then take a right-turn on a gravel road for 5 more km. You can access Cueva des las Manos via a down and up hike (<1h) from the carpark located on top...

After five weeks in South America this was by far the worst place and food we came across. The room is run down, dark (light only for a few hours from 8 pm on) and we could only take a cold shower, as there was no gas for water heating (the tank was empty and it seem too expensive to...

This estancia is located 60 KM south of the city of Perito Moreno in quite a remote area. Access from routa 40 is about 6 KM on a easy to navigate dirt road. The rooms are functional to frugal. Bathrooms are large. We were there when it was still cooling down over night and the little wall heater was barely...

This place has such massive potential but has just been left to flounder. The Estancia is surrounded by amazing countryside and you can drive 30 minutes through the Estancias land to get to the cliff edge to walk down and over to the Cuevos de los Manos (30-40 minutes). The drive is great and you see wild horses, mini ostriches,...

There is only one place to stay in this very remote area and that is Estancia Cueva de los Manos. The estancia is signposted on the Ruta 40 and it takes 4 kilometers to get there from that sign. Gretl and Monika are very kind and they will serve the meals and drinks. There is one lounge which is not...
