We left Purmamarca where we had spent the night and drove up the famous valley towards Humahuaca. The valley is quite beautiful....really fertile and green with loads of farms and agriculture, but the sides of the mountains are really arid and dry....reminiscent of the Nile! Most of the towns aren't worth bothering with....especially Humahuaca which is ghastly. But it is... More

Tilcara, Purmamarca, Humahuaca - fantastic place to visit, specially by car. You can drive from one little village to another and stop any place at those sepantine narrow roads in the mountains to see the most fantastic colourful panoramas you can imgine! We lived in Salta 3 days and travelled from there to Salinas Grandes, to festive market in Purmamarka... More

Recommendation: Do not use UMA travel or other agencies, rent a car yourself! We paid 830 peso per person for an organised trip with Uma travel to QdH. Although we used Uma travel I heard stories of other organizations providing the same terrible service, but then at least cheaper, roughly 600 peso. The reason we booked this is the fact... More

Does it make sense to add another eulogy? Maybe not, therefore this rating will not be really useful - just one more argument to visit this valley. Due to the great roads, it has become easy to reach this place.

Most people go to Siete Colores in Purmamarca (which we did and it was great) but Catorce Colores (la Quebrada) is spectacular

"Quebrada de Humauaca" is an amazing scenic drive, that should be done. When in the village of Humauca, there's a route to "El Hornocal" (el cerro de los 14 colores). It's the best views in the area!

Driving the Quebrada de Humahuaca is a must do when visiting the area of Salta. The change of colors is simply amazing. It can easily be done in a rental car as all the roads are paved. We spend two days there, the first night at a the lovely Hotel Huacalera and the second in Purmamarca (Mirador del Virrey, not... More

This place is really amazing!! BUT..... Thing twice if you want to come! It is locate at 4300m above see level, which means 2 things: Lack of oxygen which can cause nausea. Dirt road with lots of tight curves!! If you don't mind that and you stomach is tough... go ahead it's a wonderful place. Locals suggest to get there... More

We did the tour by local bus, which was very cheap. You can however not stop if you want to. But every now and then the bus stops for a while. Good views. The village of Humahuaca is disappointing.
