Crashing at the bottom the water shatters to a fine spray which, rising up forms a multitude of rainbows. Visit one of the wonders of the world.

SALTA & THE NORTHWEST REGION: The provinces included in this area are Jujuy, Salta, Catamarca, Tucuman, Santiago del Estero, Chaco and Formosa. This corridor displays the wide diversity enveloping the North of Argentina: rain forests, yungas forests, valleys, ravines and the mythical high plateau or puna, with the intermingled pre-Columbian cultures characteristic of the area. Known worldwide for to its magnificent natural scenery and the settlements where time seems to have stopped, this area gives travelers the possibility to travel back to the times of Hispanic colonization. Buildings from those days can still be seen in cities like Salta or San Miguel de Tucuman. Tapestries, textiles made with fine threads, sheep, llama or alpaca wool ponchos, gold and silver works and baskets of vegetable fiber are some of the typical crafts tourists can purchase in the area.
