Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The weather is good almost all year round in Salta and Jujuy 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.

Hotel Huacalera is a stylish hotel in an ideal location for exploring north western Argentina's Jujuy region. Explore the dramatic landscapes, visit remote villages and learn about the Andean culture of the Quebrada de Humahuaca.

Hotel Huacalera offers a superb base for taking in the sights of north western Argentina, from the unique landscapes of the seven coloured hills to the fascinating indigenous culture. Situated in the small town of Huacalera, it is right in the heart of the Quebrada de Humahuaca region, north of Salta and Jujuy, the two main entry points for the region.

There are 32 rooms here, some with a balcony or terrace, all modern in their design. Jewel coloured fabrics brighten the interiors throughout the property, contrasting to the natural wooden floors and plasterwork, and local artwork and traditional crafts are displayed throughout the property.

There is a lovely swimming pool and sun terrace where you can relax when you're not out exploring, and the Capricorn Spa offers a range of treatments as well as a sauna and steam room. Meals are served in the atmospheric dining room and are a mix of international and Andean cuisine.

Hotel Huacalera's main draw, however, is not the spa or the comfortable rooms, but the activities on offer. Take your pick from trekking in the mountains, horseback riding, visiting local ateliers and artists, to visiting archaeological sites or joining a llama trek. Interaction with rural communities is always authentic and fascinating, and your guide will ensure you get the most out of your visit to this unique region, whatever your interests are.
