Driving Distances and Itineraries in the Northwest of Argentina

Jump to last reply

Hello. We have 5 days in the Northwest and would like to rent a car to explore the region. We are planning to land in Salta then head north to go to Purmamarca and Humahuaca. It's hard to judge distances since we don't know how the roads are. Would Purmamarca be a good base for two night to explore with day trips to Humahuaca and environs?

We also would like to go to Cachi. Is one day enough there? I've heard the road to Cachi is tricky. Is it wise for us to drive it? Also, I found a nice finca in Coronel Mouldes but it seems quite a distance from Cachi. We were hoping we could use that as a two day base and do Cachi in a day trip. Does that make any sense. Any advice is welcome.

Thanks!
