Links to Salta official tourism websites


Salta, one of Argentina's northernmost provinces is part of the country's "Región Norte" (Northern Region).

Route 40 crosses the high western part of the Province, along beautiful valleys and high altitude mountain passes set in an imposing mountainous region with several peaks over 6,000 m (18,000 ft.) tall.

Here we include links to Salta's official government tourism websites (both provincial and municipal). Once again only one is in English (and French and Italian), the others are all in Spanish. There is plenty to do in Argentina to improve our online communications (this blog is an effort in that direction:

Santa Cruz province. Official Tourism websites


Today I will post the links to the official provincial and municipal websites of the province of Santa Cruz in Patagonia.

These are the towns that are on or close to Route 40. As you can see, they are few, and none of them are in English except the Government site, which has some very basic information about the province (lower right side of the site, marked with a UK flag).
