TRANSPORTATION: Salta to San Salvador to Jujuy: The bus terminal in Salta is right in the center of town, and easy to find (“Terminal de Omnibus de Salta” in Google Maps). It is clean and safe, and there are several different bus companies that go to Jujuy. I used Balut, but there are many others. Just go to the station a day or two before traveling, and buy your ticket from one of the various windows inside. Arrive 30 minutes before your departure time as the bus will load luggage (50 pesos to put a bag in the luggage compartment), and begin boarding the bus. The bus station in San Salvador de Jujuy is outside of town, to the west of the city. You can take a taxi from the terminal to town. PRICE: 1080 pesos TIME: 3 hours Salta to Cafayate: There are several bus companies that drive this route. You’ll just need to head to the Salta terminal to check all the schedules with each company to see which fits your needs best. Though you can check online first to get a general idea. I went with FlechaBus, which was a double decker bus. I sat in the first seat on the second floor which provided me with incredible views of the journey. The bus terminal in Cafayate is just outside of town, but easily walkable. It took me 15 minutes to walk from the terminal to my guest house in the center of town. The timetable for the buses from Salta Capital to Cafayate are as follows: 6:50am, 11:30am, 3:30pm, 5pm, 7:30pm, 9pm PRICE: 790 pesos ($4 usd) TIME: 3 hours "
