Un lugar que parece suspendido en una dimension irreal... paisajes lunares juntos a verdes cultivos de alfa alfa, una cocina excelente, excursiones a caballo, pinturas y arte que se respira por todo lado, adentro y afuera del Solar. Una experiencia imposible de olvidar que marca la mente y el corazón. A place that looks as belonging to another planet... lunar... More

Owned by a great French-Argentine couple, this gem of a place is a place you long for months after you left it. Superb paintings, cuisine and photos. Book ahead as they can be full or away on long trips abroad. Excellent advice for visiting their superb region.

We stayed here 2 nights with my husband and his family. Arriving here was a little challenging and it apparently gets more challenging when the river is running. Try to reach when the sun is still up! :) We enjoyed our stay here. The owners are friendly and they created a heavenly place for themselves and they like to share... More

Only go there if you enjoy remote locations with unusual environments and views, and are not too bothered about television sets or wifi or such other 'creature conforts'. In a remote location, the Humahuaca gorge (a World Heritage site), with incredible open views of the mountains, Analia and Remy, a franco argentine couple, both artists, he a painter, she a... More

We visited Solar during our trip trough Salta and Jujuy. We had high hopes after reading all the great reviews here and were not at all dissapointed. What a great place! Generous sized room and bathroom, good beds, clean, great food. But what makes it special is the attention for all the details. Everything is beautifully decorated and made after... More

We loved our stay at Solar del Tropico and found it to be an idyllic place. Analia and Remy have created something wonderful here. We (four of us) spent 4 nights there and 3 whole days. The setting in the mountains is amazing with changing light morning/evening and the garden was magical, full as it was of beautiful cosmeas, hollyhocks... More

Excellent recommendation from our hotel in Salta to stay here! Friendly hosts and great food. Beautiful garden. Road a bit rough (better with 4x4) but good signs.

Solar del Tropico is sublime. First, the location is incredibly peaceful. I have never seen the Milky Way in such clarity. The surrounding mountains inspire awe. The accommodations are spotless, comfortable and beautifully decorated artistically in a way that fits the desert setting. It was all done by artist Remy. They were quick to fire up the wood-burning stoves whenever... More

I spent 5 days at the Solar del Tropico with a friend in the end of May. We were delighted by this stay at every level. The place is magic and aspires to the peace (moreover, it’s eco-friendly). The owners are a couple of artists : he is a painter and she is a photographer. The welcome was warm and... More
