Just at 165 kilometers from Salta is this little town called Cafayate. With its 11.785 inhabitants it´s situated at 1683 meter height and surrounded by vineyards. We drove from Cachi to Cafayate in about 5 hours and this was an amazing trip. You see lama´s crossing the street, loads of peppers that have been put to dry in the sun and of course the most beautiful colored mountains. The feeling you get and the views cannot be described.

Cafayate, ArgentinaCafayate itself is a great place to stay. For foreigners it´s most famous for its bodegas and torrontes wine, which won a lot of international awards, but in Argentina Cafayate is also well known for its folklore festival every February. We stayed in a very nice hotel called Vieja Posada, which was more like a big country house, rather than a hotel. At this moment they are renovating it at the outside, but inside it was beautiful, with a big patio and excellent rooms.

There is a lot to do in Cafayate, since it´s so famous for its wine; you can visit the wine museum or take one of the many wine tour or try a wine tasting at a bodega. Unfortunately we arrived too late, so we didn´t get a chance to do these activities, but we tried the wine in a parrilla on the main square in Cafayate and I can tell you it was delicious!
