Tilcara Skies

Tilcara lies at the heart of the Quebrada de Humahuaca in North West Argentina, one of the country's most picturesque areas. Tilcara is a great base for exploring the spectacular landscapes of the Quebrada, and it's well set up for visitors with many hotels, restaurants and cafes. The town lies 90 km north of Jujuy, the main city in the province, and is easily reached by the frequent buses between Jujuy and the Bolivian border.
