Long weekend in Jujuy:
Thanks to the reopening of routes, the province was able to resume tourism this weekend. The balance was very good both in the capital and in the hinterland.
Visitors toured cities, hills, salt marshes, La Puna and Quebrada de Humahuaca. The hot springs of the Jordan River in the lush jungle of the Yungas, located in the city of San Francisco, several thousand meters above sea level, were a high-traffic area.
As usual, meetings were held which in themselves attracted national and international tourists, such as the Harley Davidson Motorcyclists’ Meeting, the Book Fair, the Medieval Festival and other events.
