Santiago del Estero in detail
There's free camping within Santiagio's vast, riverside Parque Aguirre, and plenty of hotels in the center.
Head to Av Roca between Salta and Libertad for a wide selection of popular cafes, bars and modish salon restaurants. This is the main eating and drinking area.
The nightlife buzzes along Av Roca into the wee hours – it's a barhopper's dream. In the early evening there's a fun scene at corner cafes up and down the same avenida.
