Salta, often dubbed "La Linda" (The Beautiful), is a testament to Argentina's rich colonial history and natural beauty. Nestled in the Lerma Valley, Salta boasts stunning architecture, vibrant markets, and a gateway to some of South America's most enchanting landscapes. Here's how renting a car can transform your Salta journey.

Benefits of Renting a Car in Salta:

  1. Broadened Horizons: Salta's attractions aren't just within the city; many of its gems are in the surrounding valleys and mountains. A car offers access to these wonders.
  2. Personalized Exploration: Drive through the scenic routes at your pace. Pause at lookouts, explore lesser-known spots, and choose your own adventure.
  3. Cost-effective: While guided tours have their merits, hiring a car might be more economical, especially if traveling with family or friends.

From The Tarmac to The Road:

  • Nearest Airport: Martín Miguel de Güemes International Airport serves Salta.
  • Distance to Salta City Center: Approximately 10 km, an easy drive of about 15-20 minutes via Av. Bat de Salta.

Unmissable Attractions & Routes:

  1. Salta's Historic Center: Just minutes from any point in the city, this area offers colonial-era charm with landmarks such as the pink Salta Cathedral and the Cabildo.
  2. Train to the Clouds: Though a train journey, the starting point, Salta Station, is within the city and offers one of the highest rail journeys in the world.
  3. Cafayate: Located about 190 km south of Salta via Route 68, this is a wine lover's paradise amidst the Calchaquí Valleys.
  4. Quebrada de Humahuaca: A UNESCO World Heritage site located north of Salta, about 120 km via National Route 9. Expect a drive filled with stunning geological formations and historical sites.
  5. Cuesta del Obispo and Parque Nacional Los Cardones: An impressive mountainous road that offers unparalleled views, located roughly 90 km from Salta.

Driving Recommendations:

  1. Type of Vehicle: Consider your destinations. City explorations may only require a compact car, but for more adventurous routes or off-road ventures, an SUV might be preferable.
  2. Parking: In Salta city, there's street parking, often metered, and several car parks. In rural areas and tourist spots, parking is generally straightforward.
  3. Stay Updated: For mountainous excursions or after heavy rainfalls, check local road conditions. Some routes may become impassable.


With the freedom a rental car offers in Salta, you're set to explore not just a city but an entire region filled with rich history, diverse cultures,
and breathtaking landscapes.
