Well, you cannot go to cafayate without seeing this beauty of the nature. Actually I don't think you'll be able to miss it as it spreads along 40km just before entering the city. The rocks, the colours, the mountains.. everything was amazing. I had the chance to be in Cafayate during a full moon and went on a full moon... More

Worth a visit on the way from/back to Salta City Located on Route 68. You may take Famous Route 40 from Salta to Cafayate 1 day and stay at Cafayate or near by, and Route 68 the next one. This way you will have a great 2 days visit to 'Valles Calchaquies'

Take your time and do this drive slowly and make all the stops you want because the rock formations and the mountains are truly outstanding.

Arriving or leaving Cafayate by route 68 to the northeast of the town, you drive through this mostly red sandstone canyon. The most impressive formations are the Amphitheater and the Devil's Throat, both clearly marked grom the road; they are a very short distance from the highway.

another place in the Salta/Jujuy region where you have to remind yourself to stop taking photos because with every corner you turn, there's another stunning view ahead. Breathe, relax and let yourself to take it all in. The photos do not do this justice.

The trip from Salta to Cafayate is SO WORTH IT. The scenery is beautiful. I highly recommend stopping at the Garganta del Diablo and Anfiteatro. When we got to the town of Cafayate, we ate at one of the restaurants at the plaza and then had some wine icecream (so good!). El viaje de Salta a Cafayate vale la pena!!... More

After the bus ride from Salta we were up for some sightseeing and exercise.... That was a real nice experience Renting a bike is easy Take a colectivo (flecha bus at 08h30 or 10h30) they will leave you at the garganta del Diablo after 45 min drive. Cost 50 pesos + 20 pesos for the bike. From there the way... More

We had a rental car from Salta and took our time on this amazing drive on the way to Cafayate. Every turn in the road was worth a stop, to look at the stunning, colorful views. One of the greatest drives ever.
