How awsome can nature be. Breathtaking and such a devils place. You feel rather small standing there taking it all in.

It's very close to the road (Route 68) so very accessible. Takes no time at all to get out the car and have a look, which I suppose you should do. This one is not as good as the close by El Anfiteatro. You can...More

You don’t have to be a geologist to appreciate this spectacular rock formation. Layers of rock have been folded like an old rug, to form a massive horse shoe.

I didn't think it was as impressive as the Ampitheatre and I think it was because it's not as pedestrian friendly, although we did see two rather stupid female tourist attempt to climb up the last rather steep section despite signs saying prohibited (prohibido). We...More

The road trip from salta to Cafayate is beautiful. But this attraction is not that interesting as shown

La Garganta del Diablo is on the way from Salta and Cafayate. Beautiful scenary along this route, worth stopping at the Garganta del Diablo to admire this amazing rock formation.

If you pass through there you must stop! Such a beautiful view! All the route though! You can climb a little and take better pics ;) Bring snickers!

Easy to get to by bus from the new Cafayate station. Dramatic stone formations that are great for photos...in fact, the entire surrounding area is fascinating...a truly dramatic landscape! When you're finished at La Garganta just wait on the other side of the highway for...More

If you do not wear good shoes you can’t really enter to see anything. Also not a good place for the once that can’t walk well. But it was a nice place

We saw this as part of our drive along Routa 68 and one of the many stops after the Quebrada de la Conchas. Every stop is worth it as they are all so different. Extremely beautiful scenery and rock formations. This short cave-like gorge was...More

My trip to Quebrada de Humahuaca (3 Replies)
I spent 6 days in Salta and Jujuy. I took a flight from Buenos Aires (where I’m from) to Salta because I found a flight deal but the best way to reach the “Quebrada de Humahuaca” is having a flight to Jujuy city that is nearest than Salta. Once in Salta city, I took a bus of the “Balut” company to Tilcara. As I live in Buenos Aires, I was able to buy my bus ticket there. “Balut” have a website. Maybe you can buy the ticket –or at least see the schedule- by Internet. If you fligth to Jujuy...More

How to spend one day in Iguazu Falls (Argentina) (4 Replies)
I am typing this from the Sheraton Hotel in Iguazu Falls while my memory is still fresh. Here is my take away...unless you have a fascination for waterfalls, you don´t need more than one full day at the falls. You also don´t need a tour guide because there are only 3 routes (Diablo, Upper and Lower) to take and it is impossible to get lost. If you hire a guide, here is the path they will take with you... 8:30am Board the train for the La Garganta del Diablo. This is the most powerful of...More

Good summary. I agree - although I am guessing you mean one day and one night as you are at the Sheraton. If you arrive on an early afternoon flight this will also give you the chance to to the upper loop that day. The next morning get the first train as suggested above and then do the lower loop and the boat or if you want the trip to St. Martin's island.

We will be in Salta Province for 5 days. We are planning on 1 day in Salta and then making our way to Cafayate. Our plan is to take route 33 to route 42 spending a little time in Los Cardones national park making stops for pictures and exploration and making our way to spend the night at the Hacienda Molinos (we would skip Cachi). I know its a long dusty drive in parts and am wondering if it is realistic to do this in a day from Salta and get to Colomé for the late tour and tasting. From...More
