Small quiet town
Feb 2020 • Solo
Cachi is really a small town. It doesn’t have much tourists too. I thought it would be nice to stay for a day as it was very quite. It was beautiful with the mountains surrounding it

Colonial little town
Dec 2019
We were 3 traveling through Salta. My sister, my husband, and myself. (65 y to 74 y). Our last stop, before flying back to Buenos Aires, was Cachi. It is a quaint little colonial town with a Plaza with Cathedral. The Plaza is amazingly clean with swings, slides and other games for children. Many bars, restaurants and souvenir shops surround it. A special street - calle Bustamante- leaves the plaza and goes on for aprox 400-500 m. Everything is white with hidden luxuries as special and colonial houses with wonderful gardens, bars and BB. They also sell hand made shawls, ponchos and "ruanas". Worth a stop of 3-4 hours.

Desert town
Oct 2019
Cachi is a quaint town in the desert. Lovely white buildings fill the area with plenty of places to sit, enjoy an Argentine meal and people watch. You only need to spend a couple of hours there.

The best part is the road trip to Cachi. The desert and mountain landscape is breathtaking. The ascent into the clouds will amaze you. To drive up into the clouds and then be above them will be a memorable experience.

Great trip!
Sep 2019 • Friends
We went on a one-day trip with Nordic Travel. They picked us up early in the morning from the hotel at the exact time we made an appointment. Our guide spoke fluently Spanish and English. He fully explained the details of the trip, local climate, geological aspects of the mountains formation, wild life, local customs. He also gave us some extra tips for the next day.
The excursion was fantastic, breathtaking views and really delicious food, recommended by the guide. Strongly recommend!

Fantastic day out
Sep 2019 • Couples
Leaving Salta we drove through spectacular scenery which covered 3 different vegetation types and climates. The mountainous scenery is amazing as is the drive as you climb up to over 3200m. The high desert was windy but warm. Cachi is very nice for a few hours. Eat at La Esouwa Celso Bar on the corner of the main square. The goat stew was nice as were the stuffer peppers. Of note was the 2018 Puna Malbec. A local high altitude wine that was amazing for only 500 pesos. This is a well recommended day trip

Charming Little Town
Mar 2019 • Couples
Cachi is a charming little town with homes and buildings built of adobe and lies just above the Rio Calchaqui with views of the snow capped mountains in the distance. In the tranquil Central Plaza there is a Spanish colonial church, Iglesia San José, a National Historical Monument and a small but very good archaeological museum, Museo Arqueológico de Cachi Pío Pablo Díaz.

Nice place to take a stroll ...stop by a café for a coffee and enjoy the fresh air.

Sleepy pitstop town
Dec 2018 • Couples
Most visitors only stay one night, either on the way to Salta or to Cafayate.

Not much to do, after you have seen the church, the plaza and the archeological museum. Just sit down at one of the bar / restaurants and have a one liter beer...

Lovely little town
Dec 2018 • Couples
We came from Salta to Cachi to spend the night in this small town as part of our three day tour. A pleasant little colonial Spanish village and adobe houses. There's a few restaurants but nothing much else on offer really for me. Some great views across the valley as the sun sinks in the wet to paint the surrounding hills a lovely gold.

A pleasant walk around the village through cobbled streets admiring the local crafts ( artesanales) or architecture. But the town itself seema really just a stopping point during the Salta, Cachi, Cafayate route it seems.

We were here

Should have stayed another night
Oct 2018 • Couples
After the long drive from Cafayate on the gravel road through some amazing country and a few small towns we arrived at Cache mid afternoon and checked into our very nice Hosteria. Unfortunately we had only allowed 1 night here but another day or 2 would have been good to wander around the town and to explore the surrounding area. We found it very relaxing and it looks like there is quite a lot to do in the area. The drive from Cafayate was well worth it as was the drive over the mountains and back to Salta.
