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.
