Bajo Caracoles is a hamlet in Argentina in the province of Santa Cruz. Mind of a Hitchhiker got severely stuck here for about 16 hours. It's between Perito Moreno town to the north and El Calafate to the south on the infamous Ruta 40.
There's about three places to get accommodation. One is a hotel with the town's only shop and petrol station, one is a sketchy place with a bed in a cold room and one is a camping that closes in the off-season. The fourth option is having your own tent and crashing somewhere, meaning anywhere. The only thing around you is Pampa.
