This place is heaven! The rooms are beautiful, the property is stunning, breakfast is delicious and the staff are always smiling. A cute town and a wonderful posada.

We stayed here five nights the room was charming with a fireplaces for cold evenings and a lovely patio with views out over the hills.
The breakfast was the first which had cereals with fibre and it was very ample with cereals fresh bread that they bake croissants ham cheese and spreads, fresh orange juice and fruit salads.
We had a warm welcome and were given good information about the area.
We ended up getting altitude sickness after we drove to Salinas grandes and when we went to ask the posada desk where a pharmacy was and told them what had happened they went down for us to get pills for us and brought us teas to the room as we were not feeling well.Wonderful service , great value.

Having already booked a hike with Caravanna de Llamas in Tilcara I followed their link to Posada de Luz. I had visited Tilcara 3 years ago and came back as part of a long visit to South America. I was fulfilling an ambition to wallk with the llamas that I could not do last time. Luz is the sister of Santos who runs the llama treks. So I was keeping everything in the family!! The Posada is in an excellent location on the edge of Tilcara with outstanding views. Luz and Cecilia were very accommodating and it was no trouble to give us all the advice we needed. The gardens are lovely and rooms are cozy, clean and very typical of the area. As it was winter when my sister and I visited the fires were lit in the breakfast room all day and it was very tempting to just sink into the sofas for the day!!! The breakfasts are excellent and offer a good choice. It really is a lovely place so don't hesitate and whilst you're at it book the llamas too!! Thanks Luz and Santos.

We ended up spending 6 nights here and really loved it. Sometimes when you arrive at a hotel, you can just tell that it is well run and has been thoughfully designed. Posada de Luz fits that description - we only had a standard room but it a beautiful little terrace facing down the hill, a tastefully designed room and a super bathroom (with bath!) and always really hot hot water. There was also a wood-burning stove in the room (with a basket of wood supplied) - but, much to my disappointment, it was never cold enough in the room to put this on. The communal outside space is really pleasant too - the pool is tiny but there is a lawned area with some loungers and some easy chairs under a nut tree.
We don't think you could do better in Tilcara which is a nice place to while away a few days. Oh, nearly forgot - the breakfast is excellent with eggs and ham cooked to order and plenty of bready delights. The only negative that I can think of is the wifi which is woefully fragile. Otherwise, we wholeheartedly recommend Posada de Luz!

Tilcara is an ideal base to tour the other small towns and the Quebrada de Humahuaca valley. We stayed for 2 nights in a standard room which was lovely. Authentically decorated and logs in a basket outside the door for your very own wood burning stove is a lovely touch. We had our own outdoor terrace with great views - all very relaxing and peaceful. The hotel is a short trot into the centre where there are a few little restaurants. Tilcara and the other towns around here are traditional frontier places but we thought Tilcara was the best. Humahuaca was very touristy and Purmamaca was just too small. A couple of nights here was a treat!

We stayed at Posada De Luz for 5 nights to base ourselves around Tilcara and we are very happy that we did. The hotel is very comfortable, extremely laid back and the location is second to none. We had the most amazing view from our room straight down the valley. The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. It's located about 5 minutes walk from the main square in Tilcara. Highly recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
La Posada de Luz is in Tilcara, in the heart of the Quebrada de Humahuaca, which was declared Natural and Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2003. It was categorized with three stars by the Tourism Department of the Province of Jujuy, and it has 6 double rooms, triple rooms and a quadruple one. Its owner, Luz Manfredi, knew the area in 1985, while on a trip to Cuzco, and since then she was in love with the landscape and the culture of the people. The project to build an inn in the “quebradeña way”, i.e. with stone foundations, adobe walls and mud cake and cane roofs grew through the years, and it took shape in January 2004 with the opening of the Posada de Luz with its 6 rooms whose main charm are the terraces from where you get a panoramic view of the hills around Tilcara. Since then we have received in the Posada people from all corners of Argentina and the world, many of whom are now great friends of ours. ... more   less
