Northern Argentina Travel

Some of the most spectacular scenery in the country and a rich cultural heritage from the Incas and other indigenous cultures are found in the northwest of Argentina.
If looking for a destination to amaze you, this is it!
Beautifully colored mountains, extensive valleys, enormous salt flats, deserts, arid vegetation as cactus are easy to see. There is also a dense jungle called the Yungas.
Colonial and a very particular local architecture, museums and artisanal markets, great for shopping leather, ceramic and textile goods, there is too much to do and see.
Visiting the small towns at Quebrada de Humahuaca is a MUST. Purmamarca, Tilcara and Humahuaca are the highlights of these particular towns with a great identity.
Enjoy a night out at a peña, a restaurant and folkloric music venue. Try the delightful local food while watching music and dance performances, and be ready to join in the dance because very probably you will be invited to do it.
Regional food is very different to the rest of the country. Be sure to try the empanadas salteñas before leaving the area.

MATER offers a completely new way of traveling, visiting these amazing places very close to the locals.
Giving the opportunity to both, locals and visitors, to learn from each other, to discover the differences and similarities of their cultures, to share some time. Will not become another trip but a real experience of life.
To make your travel to Salta Argentina even more unique there is a Community Tourism Program that offers meals and accommodation in family homes.

Consider North of Argentina as your next travel. This is a very impressive region that you will probably enjoy so much that will never forget.
