    Wonderful People shots in this small town not so many tourist as it is well out of the way. The kind of place someone who like to photograph people love.

La Quiaca Tourist Traps

  • Andre_C10002's Profile Photo

    by Andre_C10002 Written Feb 8, 2007

    OK, this is not exactly a trap but a warming. When you buy bus tickets from La Quiaca to Salta they will say its "directo", but as far as I could find, there are NO direct buses to Salta. Some of then stop in more town then others. It can take you from 6 to 8 hours.

    Unique Suggestions: The roads are not bad but you better get yourself water, maybe something to eat. Also there are no stops with "usuable" bathroons.

    Fun Alternatives: No alternatives here. Just relax and enjoy the view, talk to locals in the bus, watch the movies... in the end, its fun!
