We first stopped at Garganta del Diablo, which had many cars in the car park and a trail of tourists wandering up the canyon. Whilst beautiful, it was nothing compared to El Anfiteatro. Much harder to find the car park, so look carefully for a track after the 50m sign. When we arrived, there was only one lady on her own, signing beautiful Spanish songs. After a while, she left and I was on my own to test out my own vocal range. I never sing in front of anyone, but here I was with the ultimate acoustics to play around with. Totally magical and much better than its busy neighbour 100m away.

Visited as part of a day trip from Salta to Cafayate in May 2017. Large canyon leading to an ampitheatre style opening, beneath and impressive plain and mountains. Certainly worth a visit if you're in the area.

Amazing views overall. Free entrance except for the trinkets you buy from the locals which are actually very nice and we bought a number of them.

The site is worth a stop like most of the attractions on the road to Cafayate. I found it good for a few pictures but the visit doesn't take more than 10 minutes. I really had much more fun climbing its neighbouring Garganta del Diablo. The previous night there had been a bad storm, so there were gaps full of mud that were kind of dangerous. I buried my feet and leg up to my calf in a big one.

The place is enchanting. It humbles you to be surrounded by the rock's walls. In addition, there is usually a musician playing local music, that adds to the visit. At the entrance, local vendors of native jewelry at reasonable prices.

Amphitheatre or devils throat? Amphitheater is better, but most people stop at both. A few stalls line it, and a musician was there. It was beautiful and impressive. Worth a quick 5 min stop from salta to Cafayate. We came in our own car and was worried the stones on the dirt track would burst our tires but was ok! Enjoy!

As others have said, this is a short walk to an impressive geological formation. When we were there, two parrots were calling to each other and creating their own amplified music for the space. It would have been cool to hear flutes, but perhaps they didn’t want to compete!

We saw this as part of our drive along Routa 68 and one of the stop after the Quebrada de la Conchas. Every stop is worth it as they are all so different. Extremely beautiful scenery and rock formations. Highly recommended.

There are no signs, so look out for parked cars and it is a very short walk to this - with free entry and take your time to walk around. We were lucky on the day we were there, that there was a local musician sitting playing his beautiful tune and the acoustics are awesome. The rock layers are phenomenal and this is gigantic.
