The Province of Jujuy
lies on the northern end of Argentina and its geographical features turn it into a very special place. This has been discovered by tourists in the last few decades, during which even the smallest cities of Jujuy have been chosen as the trendiest destinations when it comes to going on a trip around this region. Tilcara
, Maimará and Humahuaca
are some of the most popular destinations. Every year, several events celebrated at these locations summon thousands of tourists who come along lured by typical dishes, popular celebrations and the most original carnivals in the world.
The Humahuaca Ravine has been declared World Cultural and Natural Heritage by UNESCO. Very picturesque small towns completely worth a visit are scattered around this area.
The capital of Jujuy
also seduces all first-comers. Its ravines and valleys, the polite nature of its denizens and the most unexpected corners of the city make it unique and convince visitors to come back.
Another must visit in Jujuy is the salt deposit known as "Salinas Grandes". This scene is perfect to make anyone believe they are either on another planet or inside a science fiction story. Everything is white and salt. When it rains, the cracks on the ground disappear and everything becomes an endless mirror reflecting it all. A site second to none.
Only 1 kilometer from Tilcara, rises a historical site that makes it possible to watch what happens several kilometers away. Tilcara's Pucará still preserves the magic of time immemorial intact.
Strategically located 2,500 meters above sea level, right in the center of the Humahuaca Ravine, the Pucará welcomes thousands of visitors every year coming not only from other points in our country but also from the most remote parts of the world.
De Reyes Hot Springs
The place known as Termas de Reyes (Kings' Hot Springs) lies 18 km away from San Salvador de Jujuy. The amazement and magic of a unique site is combined with a system of groundwater streams whose temperature surpasses 50ºC, teeming with mineral salts and nourishing elements.
The Reyes hot springs stimulate body defenses, depurate blood, eliminate toxins and reactivate metabolism.
The Salinas Grandes
We visited Salinas Grandes, one of the greatest depressions in the province with an exposed surface of over 12,000 hectares of salt. Its infinite vastness dazzles visitors with its white color.
In order to reach this solitary area, visitors must go along National Route 52 and cross the Jama Pass into Chile up to Abra de Potrerillo, where the salt flats are located.
