  • The La Aurora stay, about 30 km from jump, is a site of tourist attraction. It is an ideal place for meditation and mysticism. For Catholics is a site of pilgrimage, while that for many people it is a place of great energy from Termas de Dayman organizam guided tours.

  • Surely for someone a believer has more attractive Promenade, the place has nothing to highlight and is a place of difficult access route in poor condition.

Where to stay in Salto

Salto provides a good selection of basic hotels offering low-cost rooms with few amenities--these remain a popular option for budget-conscious travelers and solo backpackers. Consider looking just outside the city for accommodations, as many of the area's hot springs provide comfortable rooms with a range of perks like free parking, Wi-Fi, barbecue facilities, and access to private gardens with a swimming pool.
