Salta, Argentina

From bustling Brazil we crossed the border into northern Argentina and headed to the mountainous town of Salta.

We recommend:

1. Eating a delicious, juicy, tender steak at Viejo Jacks.

2. Hiking to the top of San Bernardo hill and taking in the views of the city. (There’s also the more leisurely gondola option.)

3. Visiting the archeology museum along the main plaza to learn about the Incan culture.

4. Buying a footlong hot dog for around 50 cents at one of the many stands and asking for a “rain of shoestring potatoes” (lluvia de papas) on the top.

    • Against my “let’s pack light – only the bare essentials!” recommendations, Isaiah made the smart choice of dragging along the thermos, yerba, guampa, and bombilla and BOY was that a good move as we’ve enjoyed it so, so many times.

Drop us a line; we love hearing from you!
