For a laid back stopover we have visited Salta twice in the past five years, it is probably our favourite place to kick back and unwind. The people are friendly. the architecture is varied and awesome, the pace of life is very relaxed and the culture is all encompassing. Lots to see and do if you like and some great bars and restaurants to unwind in. Natural beauty abounds with arid landscapes to the North with the occasional inhabited oasis along the way. Perhaps a trip up the cable car to the botanical gardens and some fabulous views or a real adventure on the Train to the Clouds, South through the agricultural areas and then high into the mountains beyond the treeline and the realm of the giant cardones to a place in the sky where the condors soar? In the evening a meal at The Casona del Molino and some local wine and authentic local music to top off another wonderful day. Don't miss it, I promise you'll enjoy.
