The staff here is really friendly and helpful. The place is central and within walking distance from the bus terminal, just south of the plaza. The Balcarce area is about 20 minute walk away.
The place is clean, with access to a kitchen but it is in needs of some basic maintenance like changing a knob that staid in my hand after turned it to get water.
The table tennis and the roof terrace are great.
It's a good place with good value for money.

... in preparation for getting up early for the next days activities. Today we opted to go on a wine tour, our first preference was to go white water rafting (I know how much of a cry baby I was after the first time, but you have got to get right back on that horse/raft) but nobody else was up for it because it's quite expensive, pretty much the same price as sky diving, so we went for the cheaper option. Now, wine tasting, that is my forte as ...

... up an hour outside of Salta and the winter rain was not expected so the one road into town flooded, chaos ensued and only vehicles high enough off the ground were able to get by. I was fearful we'd have to sleep in the bus and by this time I was over the guide's many stories and jokes in Spanish, followed by a succinct English translation.

We got back into town an hour late, covered in clay and exhausted. It was totally worth ...

... us up along with a heap of other tourists. The age range of this tour group was probably the most varied of any we have done yet with us being the youngest and a few of the others about 60/70. Once again the road to Cafayate brought many different and amazing views, each changing as quick as we could look at them.

Our first proper stop was at the devils throat, which is a passage that enters into a rock face where we were able to get some ...

... longer we booked out bus out of Salta and reserved a hostel in Tupiza, Bolivia. We were excited at the prospect of leaving Argentina and going somewhere completely different. We went back to our room to check our US dollars and found that Tracy couldnt find her passport. We checked and checked and we seem to think that she must have lost it somewhere on the road trip. It was last seen at the Bodega Colomé where she had purchased a shawl. We called ...
