Because I booked the day before, the info didn't get to the local company. They put me on a more expensive tour (which inckuded lunch, which was delicious) which I really appreciated. Punta Walichu was somewhat disappointing compared to other cave paintings I've seen and had been degraded with people carving initials/dates (modern) over some of the old paintings. Beautiful area, though.
