Hi,
Iīm planning to go to Salta next week. My plane arrives at Tucuman on wednesday, and I was planning to take a bus to cafayate and from there to Salta. However, I heard that there are floods and lots of rain up there. How bad the situation is? can I still go there safely? are the roads (for example between Tucuman and Salta) fine? Or should I start thinking to change my plans?
Thanks to everyone that can help
Matteo

Yeah apparently the floods in Northern Argentina are pretty bad. Every summer the same thing happens. I have never been there personally during the floods, so I donīt know to what extent the media is conveying the right reality. I can only tell you that they tend to exaggerate in matters like these. Yes, there are refugees, and yes the pictures look threatening, but letīs face t, the media always blows things up. ī

On the other hand, not knowing how bad it is is risky for your trip. I can only offer to conact some friends from Salta /Northern Argentina who might be able to fill me in better. If you can wait a few days for the real answer that'd be great.

Thanks Zento. Yes, I agree, I suspect the media may exagerate things a bit. I contacted my hotel in Salta and they said that the situation in Salta and Tucaman is fine, and that the road between the two is alright. At this point I think Iīll go (my flight is the day after tomorrow) and see what happens.. But if in the meantime you talk with someone that is there itīd be very useful.
Thanks a lot.

Hey. I have emailed a friend of mine and he replied that the floods are mainly concentrated in remote areas which are unlikely to be seen by travelers. He mentioned that these remote floods wold not hinder your trip. Hopes this helps, and good luck!
