With a service station for fuel, an auto cash dispenser (Macro Bank), several places to stay and to eat make Cachi good stop. The little town centre and plaza are quiet and attractive places.

Compared to some of the other towns along the Ruta 40, Cachi is the main tourist town. Having said that, there is not a lot going on and it is a pleasant place to spend a day or two. There are some very cheap and...More

A sweet, quaint, historic (and very clean) small hill town. Lovely to walk around, shop, take in the views. Wish we'd had time for some serious hiking up into las montañas.

We drove for 6 1/2 hrs from Cafayate to get there on a horrible dirt road (which no one mentioned) in order to get there. Multiple cars on the road with flat tires which was concerning. However the scenery on the road was breathtaking and...More

Cachi is a really pleasant town. It is quite remote and takes several hours of driving to arrive from anywhere! The drive is spectacular though. The city is quite a bit more touristy, maintained and sophisticated than other area towns.

Lovely town, little central square where the town comes out in the evening, nice place for a sunset wine. Amazing scenery, peaceful, tranquil, wish I had stayed longer.

We recently went to San Pedro de Atacama (Chile). We had heard and read tons of great reviews about the Chilean town. Although we fell in love with the area around San Pedro de Atacama, the little village did not live up to our expectations....More

Cachi is a gem! So much more genuine and unspoilt than Cafayate or the other more well-known villages in North West Argentina. Beautiful adobe houses well laid out around the central square. Several great restaurants! A beautiful church, and a very relaxing atmosphere. But best...More

It is possible, but not recommendable, to drive Salta-Cachi-Cafayate in one day. You would follow RN33 through Cuesta del Obispo to Payogasta, then RN40 to Cachi, then on to Molinos and to Cafayate. You can do this in one... More
