Depending on where you came from, Salta is either the most amazing medium-sized town in the universe or just an average place. I came from Bolivia, so for me it was Xanadu.

Check out Alvarez Restaurant for cheap sandwiches and stuffed pizzas on the corner of Buenos Aires and San Martín. New Time Cafe on the main square has moist chocolate cake and smooth cappuccino. They have free wireless internet as well.

The girl mummy is housed at the Museo de Arqueología de Alta Montaña in Plaza 9 de Julio. Her skin is better preserved than the elderly. There are other things to do if you don’t wake up every day at 2PM like I did, such as churches, museums, waterfalls, and a cable car ride.


The best restaurant in town is El Solar de Covento (Caseros 444), located a stone’s throw away from Iglesia San Francisco. You will spend under $20 for fine dining with incredible food and desserts.

Hostel Terra Oculta (Córdoba 361)
$8.25/night for dorm room. I really enjoyed this hostel. The young guys who work here love going out and the Wednesday / Saturday barbecue has great food and a fun atmosphere. Free internet is fast and showers are always hot. There is a nice kitchen for your cooking pleasure. Just be sure to stay in the main building instead of the quieter annex.
