Husband and I will be in argentina's salta northwest region for 4 nights-
Purmamarca 1 night, salta 1 night, cafayate 2 nights. We are looking for good local food. Any restaurant / food recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

We will also be in Iguazu for 2 nights. Please let us know if there is anything we shouldn't miss while we are out there.

Thank you!

  1. Allow me to revive this it will be our destination soon.
    Salta, Cafayate, anything Northwest and some CH absolute favorites (comidas tipicas, parillas, etc.) in Buenos Aires would be quite welcome.

    1. Hi Mike R, and other travelers,

      We're going to be in the northwest region next month. Could you give us ideas for food, wine, music, empanadas, etc.? I think we will be staying in Purmamarca, Salta, Cachi and Cafayate, at a minimum.

      1. I was in Salta back in 2005, so probably a lot has changed, but maybe this post will help you if you haven't seen it already:

        I imagine at least some of those places are still around since they were such institutions.
