Well, we knew our next transit adventure was going to be tough, but not quite as tough as it worked out. Will it be worth it? Regardless, we were just glad to be leaving the expensive dusty **** hole that is San Pedro; to us, the only negative thing about Chile.
So it was off to the bus station we went, leaving our cute little darling …
another day in Salta, mostly organizing our next week by hiring a car, bikes and planning our trip. Mum and I went up to the top of the Cerro de San Bernardo mountain by gondola in the afternoon. We had a great view of salta which is surrounded by the Andes mountains. They had built lots of waterfalls at the top that you could walk under, they must …
Today we woke up to another beautiful day and breakfast. we walked down to the Plaza de Mayo, the main square in Salta. It is surrounded by museums, churches, outside restaurants and shops. We picked a good Cafe to sit down at so we could just watch everything and everyone. I had the best banana smoothie and mum and dad thought the coffee was …
8 November Today is another traveling day. We're getting good at packing our bags quick! We had a quick breakfast and then taxied to the bus terminal.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
We arrived into Salta via a 10-11 hr bus ride from San Pedro and were extremely happy to arrive at this beautiful well run hotel with a sweet courtyard garden with a pool.
The position of the hotel is a couple blocks up from the main bus terminal and is directly across from the cable car to take you to the top of Cerro San Bernardo. The walk into town is safe and only takes about 10-15mins. There are several shops nearby as well for waters, beers and snacks.
The hotel itself, although a little dated, is pretty and peaceful and perfectly fine for a one or two night stay. The only small let down is the breakfast comprising mainly sweet pastries, mediocre bread, jams, fruit and juices. Not the continental style breakfast we appreciate more.
The hotel staff were extremely helpful, even ordered us pizza for delivery.
If returning back to Salta, I think we'd definitely stay here again.
