Travel Tips from people who've been to Salta
If you travel to salta you have to taste the regional wines, and he wine icecream!!! There are a lot of cheaper youth hostels around the main square (Plaza San Martin), or close to the Balcarce street, where there are many pubs to enjoy the night. Better places in Salta: Iruya (you have to go there from Humahuaca- Jujuy), Cachi (the way to Cachi, called Cuesta del Obispo, is beautiful), Cafayate (where you will find the vineyards), and close to Cafayate, on "Quebrada de las Conchas" there are many rocks with funny forms, the "Garganta del Diablo" and the "Anfiteatro" are the best.
SIn lugar a duda, Salta la linda (así le llaman los lugareños) sorprende al viajero por su pasado colonial.Nda que ver con el resto de zonas de argentinas.Aún se conserva y se respira el ambiente criollo y más bien pareces estar en Bolivia que en Argentina.Excelente base/punto de partida para visitar la zona vinícola de Cafayate (la carretera transcurre entre rocas con formas curiosas); la quebrada de Humahuaca , el cerro de los 7 colores de Pumamarca y el famoso Tren a las Nubes donde uno puede experimentar la sensación de quedarse sin oxigeno a 4300 eur
Beautiful town square and lots of churches! The old town has some great bars and restaurants. Also a good place to visit "The Route To The Clouds". Unfortunately the rail route is closed but you can get a driver quite easily if there's a few of you.
