Salta

Salta the Beautiful

Salta boasts a vibrant social life and array of informative museums appealing to visitors looking for a memorable cultural experience. Founded in 1582, the city of around 600,000 people offers some of Argentina's best-preserved colonial architecture and serves as the primary base for holidaymakers in northwestern Argentina, with excellent tourist infrastructure accompanying old-world charm. Salta's cobbled streets hum with the sound of folk music, which spills from the many cafes and bars dotted throughout the city. A trip to Salta also offers a chance to explore the nature surrounding the city, which is famous for its colorful mineral rock formations. Take a look at our Argentina trip builder tool to refine the details of your trip to Salta.

Where to stay in Salta

Salta's status as the tourist hub of northwestern Argentina means that a wide array of accommodations has sprung up throughout the city. The majority are concentrated around the city's grid-like center, surrounding Plaza 9 de Julio. For something more relaxed and closer to nature, go southeast and explore the area around Parque San Martin. You can opt for anything from a healthy range of budget accommodations, including hostels and small guesthouses, all the way to luxury hotels.
