After my lovely stay in San Martin, I decided to keep going with my North Patagonia trip and visit Villa la Angostura, another lake-side town where hiking and swimming are possible in the same place!
After my interesting time in Mendoza, I knew things were going to get even better. Finally, I was about to head to the Argentinian side of Northern Patagonia – first stop: San Martín de los Andes.
And, my friends, I would have happily stayed there for longer (hence the reference to Rihanna & Calvin Harris song – with the only difference being the “hopeful” part).
After my long weekend full of wine and walks, I was ready to be in a big city again. But this time, unlike Salta, I decided to stay for a shorter amount of time – with the only and most important goal being going to Aconcagua, the highest mountain of the World if you exclude the Himalayas.
Just 3 hours South of Salta, Cafayate is very, very pretty. I decided to take a long weekend off from hard working in Salta, and booked a comfy double bed in a local hostel. I really needed to get some sleep back!
Salta is a busy city. They call it “Salta la Linda” (“Salta the Beautiful”) due to its colonial architecture, excellent weather and natural scenery. Or maybe they call it like that to get as many tourists as possible. Either way, my 10 days in Salta where way too many – screw you TripAdvisor!
