Las Cuevas and Puente del Inca are both nothing more than broken down mishmashes of a few refugios and casual eateries designed for climbers (and booked by expeditions) in the summer season. Despite signage advertising hotels are open year-round, they aren't. Many look halfway to being reclaimed by the elements. Nearby Los Penitentes lodgings are only open in winters with snow. For day-trippers, the most convenient place to overnight is Uspallata.
