  • Linking Salta Valley and the Valley of Cachi with Cafayate, this road is superb and arrives in this park with magnificent Saguaros.

  • One of my favorite places in Argentina. From here you can see the famous ruta tin tin which the incas used for commercial purposes.
  • Thousands of cordoned like wandering souls walking in the desert... Majestic!
  • Absolutely beautiful, the landscape is just amazing I wished I could have stayed longer
  • Cactis, cactus, cactus
  • Great day in the countryside, just roll in the middle of these landscapes is an experience in itself, to make stops around. few tourists

Where to stay in Cachi

Across the small urban area of Cachi, you'll find well-appointed accommodations set in atmospheric colonial-era buildings. Mainly offering little but the room itself, these small hotels and guesthouses have more than enough charm and welcoming spirit to make you forget about the lack of amenities. Campgrounds just outside of the main village present a particularly enticing option for visitors wanting to get straight out into the landscape and spend a night under the stars.
