... generous tastings that went to our heads a bit at 14.5%! On to the next vineyard, a 45 minute walk uphill in the heat, only to discover it was closed... We were dreading the 9km walk back into town in the heat but a short while in we managed to flag down a pick up truck that took us most of the way back to town, thank god! We passed another winery so had a couple of quick free samples before heading home for dinner and more ...
... to Cafayate where we explored and drove through the Calchaquíes valleys. This beautiful landscape was basically like looking at the Grand Canyon all day. We stopped at several points throughout the trip to walk around to take pictures. A few points of interest were The Natural Amphitheatre, which looked like a huge, hollowed out stage within the mountains. We also stopped at Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s throat), which did, indeed, look like a ...

Afterwards we walked up to the north of the city along Balcarce. A pavement cafe lured us toward lunch - omlette and a shared beer which came in an ice bucket. Then to the old railway station from where the Tren de las Nubes (Train of the clouds) goes once a week up into the high Andes and back. We had ruled out travelling on it as (a) it is expensive and touristy, (b) a very long day and reviews ...
18-11: vandaag vertrekken we weer richting Salta. Met de heenweg in ons achterhoofd vertrekken we enigsinds gespannen maar dit blijkt al snel onnodig. De lucht is strakblauw en er hangt slechts ietswat bewolking tussen de bergen. We rijden dezelfde weg als we kwamen maar alleen veel sneller en met een beter uitzicht. We stoppen een aantal malen en komen drie uur later aan in Salta. We rijden weer naar het OCY hotel dat weinig charme heeft ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsPetit Hotel Salta
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.
