San Salvador de Jujuy

Getting there & around


Bus & tram


Jujuy’s scruffy bus terminal (422-1375; cnr Av Dorrego & Iguazú), blends in with the Mercado del Sur. It has provincial and long-distance services, but Salta has more alternatives.

Chile-bound buses from Salta to Calama (US$33 to US$40; prices depend on whether you’re traveling on a day or night bus) stop in Jujuy Tuesdays and Fridays. Make reservations in advance at the Géminis office at the terminal.

El Quiaqueño goes to La Quiaca (US$7, five hours), Humahuaca (US$3.50, two hours) and Tilcara (US$3, two hours). Cota Norte goes daily to Libertador General San Martín (US$3, two hours), for access to Parque Nacional Calilegua.

Long-distance fares include Salta (US$3, 2½ hours), Tucumán (US$10, five hours), Córdoba (US$25, 13½ hours), Mendoza (US$32, 14 hours), Resistencia (US$26, 14 hours) and Buenos Aires (US$40, 20 hours).
