Hello everybody! How are they? I’m new to the site, but I didn’t want to stop adding my contribution. After telling what other travelers offer, I could not stay with the desire to bring my experience to them.
This summer, I traveled with a couple of friends to Cafayate , in northern Argentina, more precisely in Salta, la linda. Despite the fact that the road can be long from the capital (just over two hours by car) one does not stop enjoying it from the beginning. The northern landscapes give much to talk about. The different forms that landscapes take are not only captivating but also have a great resemblance to reality. Los Castillos was one of the ones I liked the most, although there are others that lean towards the Devil’s Throat or El Sapo.
After recreating the imagination, the long awaited “el Cafayate” arrives, with its wineries that crown a triumphal entry. Large tracts of land, with very green vineyards make you want to get out of the car and start the tour before reaching any hostel.
In my case, we arrived at sunset, so with my people we went for a walk around the square and afterwards enjoy some empandas in a nearby restaurant.
Later, the night lends itself to enjoying the nightlife, in peñas or “boliches”.
The next day, we went to visit one of the wineries and then to the Vine and Wine Museum to finish discovering the path of wine. In the afternoon, as it was hot, we went to the Spa, which has a huge pool where we can cool off. And in the evening, we repeat the “ritual of the square”, where we also had the pleasure of renting a bike for three.
The third day he found us in the Medanos, enjoying that wonder of light color. And in the afternoon, we visit the Church and prepare to leave.
There is never enough time to get to know Cafayate, so I recommend at least 48 hours there.
I hope you liked my story! Greetings to all!
