Hi guys. The lake looks beautiful. Not so sure about the fried food....
I got my map out to see where you are in relationship to where we (Mark, Neil and Diana) went and discovered we were one valley to the west. Going south out of Salta, we took a right/west turn at Caril onto Ruta 33 and stayed our first night at Cachi. (We were driving). Then we headed south and stayed at Molinos and Cafayate, which I believe you where I believe you will also be staying. Cafayate was very pleasant, lots of wine and scenery like the Okanagan. Heading south from there, you will pass by the archeological site of Quimes, on your west and it is worth visiting.
