How do I get to Salta?
El Aybal Airport is only four miles from the centre of the city and is an international airport in the sense that it takes flights from Chile as well as Argentina. Also known as Martin Miguel de Guemes Airport, travellers from outside South America will have to find a hub city to fly on from but Buenos Aires and Santiago de Chile both have excellent connections with the rest of the world. There are buses and taxis to take you into the city or you can collect a hire car from the airport car hire desks if you haven’t already arranged one in the city. The journey is quick and easy and you’ll be in your city centre hotel in under twenty minutes.

What is There to do in Salta?
You can take your camera on a tour of Salta’s fabulous architecture which includes the Cabildo, the old town hall which is now a museum exhibiting the history of the Norte province of Argentina. MAAM Museum is a must see for it’s there that the details of the three Inca children found as frozen sacrifices on nearby Mount Llullaillaco are displayed. The bodies have been given a proper burial now but their fascinating story and that of their discovery wows visitors to the museum. Outside the city there are opportunities for hiking, hang gliding and horse riding, all of which enable you to see the beauty of the Lerma Valley.
