Food and drink

If you're staying in the domes or cabins, meals are included and are an indulgent affair. Delicious local dishes are served in the heated communal dining dome which has wooden tables and benches and fantastic views of the Paine Massif. If you're camping, you can set up your cooking equipment in one of the domes. There's also a 'quincho', a traditional cooking room where barbecues are prepared.
