From Tucuman to the Bolivian border, you'll pass through a mind-blowing array of ecosystems and cultures, gawking at the majesty of the Andes while staying in easy-to-ride valleys.  Visit the deserted Inca ruins of Quilmes before heading into the wine country around Cafayate.  Salta, the biggest city in the region, is Argentina's best-preserved colonial city and heart of its native culture.  Also on the route are Jujuy and Purmamarca, with its famous seven-coloured hill. Best in fall or spring.

In whcih month(s) did you go?

In which months did you go? We are planning to revisit some parts of Argentina, Chile and possibly Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay and Brazil. Can you also tell us your experience for cycling in those countries (if you have been there) i.e. road saftey, crimes? I remember Tucuman was extremely hot between Jan to end Feb when I was there but then I was only travelling, not cycling. Thanks for any input. We plan to go towards the end of Jan 2010 until July or so the same year.
