Introducing Humahuaca

The Quebrada’s largest settlement is also its most handsome, with atmospheric cobblestoned streets, adobe houses and quaint plazas. You can feel the nearby puna here, with chilly nights, sparse air and a quiet Quechua-speaking population. Humahuaca is less altered by tourism than the towns further south, though there are good handicrafts shops, and folk musicians strum and sing in the restaurants.
