Welcome to Humahuaca
Quebrada de Humahuaca's largest settlement is handsome, dotted with adobe houses and a quaint plaza. However, the cobblestone streets buzz with traffic and an agenda that is not oriented toward tourism. But there are good handicrafts shops, local folk musicians strum and sing in the restaurants, and it's the most authentic, if least comfortable, of the three main Quebrada towns. Still, most visitors blow through on day trips to and from the spectacular Serranía de Hornocal. Nights get chilly – bring your poncho (or something similarly warm).
