... and some good surrounding views but our allotted time here was only one night and the following day. We went white water rafting! It was really so much fun, our group was 5 of the originals plus Valentin (Romanian) and Tania (French Canadian). We had a really funny raft captain. He had really good banter the whole way down the river. We did 9 rapids and I ...
... I had on 7 layers in my top half, 2 bottom half, 4 pairs of socks, boots, ear muffs and gloves) then we all sat in the common area with hot chocolate and biscuits to warm us up a bit. Our dinner was brought out a bit later which was yummy homemade veg soup with bread then mince n mashed tatties for main. After dinner we played some cards then headed to bed still in all the clothes we had on. Definitely a different experience. We miss ...
... road is not really one you are able to stop on so we dont get a chance to take any photos, not the I beleive the photos would do justice to it anyway! We arrive back to Salta in the early evening. After dropping our bags off at our hostel we take the car to be cleaned and then filled with petrol and put the hub cap back on the tire (it has not been on since we had the flat tire on the way to Cachi). We end up in a bit of a rush but need not have worried as we had another ...

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.
