There is basic and cheap accommodation at Hostal Rotta, also a few basic restaurants, shops and a market. To continue north from San Luis, you may have to hire a minibus (US$15 for the vehicle) to take you the 28 km to Puente Llacma, the junction of the roads for Yanama and Pomabamba, from where you can hitchhike.
