Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The weather is good almost all year round in Salta and the north west in general. It’s warm and dry in winter (June to September) though it gets cold at night. Summer (December to February) is hot and there’s no air conditioning in most rooms. Avoid the rainy season of February to March, when many of the roads to places you'll want to explore may be impassable due to flooding.

Ali Andino (Staff)

Friendly staff greets you at the reception area. This hotel is in a great location in Palermo Soho, walking distance to many great restaurants and bars. The rooms are  modern and each one has its own unique theme to it. Not too many rooms so this books up very early. There's no pool or fitness center, it is a true boutique hotel.



With its rawhide throws, polished cow-horn and Andean textiles, Legado Mitico Salta makes sure you know where you are. The second hotel from the team behind the Legado Mtico Buenos Aires, it follows the same successful formula: small, low-key and indisputably Argentine. Each of the 11 rooms is named after a charismatic national figure, be it folk musician, military heroine or freedom fighter. Cowhide chaps hang above the bed in El Gaucho; there are framed bows and arrows in El Wichi; and hand-woven rugs adorn El Kolla. The native flair is down to design duo Javier Figueroa and Horacio Menndez, who scour markets and auctions for furnishings. This lesser-known part of Argentina is home to the world's highest vineyards and the 'Train to the Clouds', a classic South American railway journey.
