we do not recommend to make the tour with an operator. It's much better to rent a car. With three persons its the same price and you can stop wherever you want. Taking time for your pictures and enjoy the great landscape. With the bus...More

Spend a day or more touring this spectacular area. The colors of nature on on full display and will be evident at every turn. Photos just don’t do justice to the beauty you’ll find here.

The village of Purmamarca is quite lovely. It looks a bit like Cachi, with the main square the narrow colonial streets, and the small catholic church. But surrounding the village lies a layered and multi-colored mountain. If you´re in Salta, that´s a definite must-see. There...More
