Cueva Cuesta Palmarito (Palmarito Hill Cave) is actually a series of small caves and shelters along a canyon. It is located at the end of the road to San Francisco De La Sierra, hence it is also known as Pinturas Rupestres San Francisco De La Sierra. The road ends at the hamlet Guadaloupe, from here it is necessary to walk.
The walk is done by foot or mule, and take 5 to 6 hours. As a result it is necessary to arrive the day before and stay overnight in a tent. There is a sort of visitor center in a hut with information about the cave paintings, which is the starting point. The tours are rather strenuous and require preparation. They are organized by Dr. María de la Luz Gutiérrez Martínez, head of the SSF Archaeological Zone, INAH-BCS Center. Contact her for detailed information.
