We did not pass through the town of Perito Morenes on our route, turning off the main north south highway to enter Chile via Lago Posada. Do not confuse the town with the Perito Moreno Glacier (the glacier is near Clafate, and hundreds of kilometers to the south of the town.)
Perito Moreno is on the Northwest of the Province of Santa Cruz, at the crossroads of Provincial Route Nº43 and National Route Nº40. It is acricuturally well off and is is surrounded by livestock, fruit, and vegetable farms.
