Can you tell me the best way to get from Iguzzu to Salta. Is it better to take a bus firstly to Resistencia or go straight to Salta (seems a very long way)?
We have three weeks time and are planning to see the best of Argentina...

Hi Martina, everyone else.
Salta is a very long way away from Iguazu, so I would definitely advise stopping off somewhere en route. Instead, of Resistencia, try Corrientes, which is the site in which Graham Greene set his novel The Honourary Consul. I loved Corrientes. It is relatively quiet, has a host of unsung but beautiful colonial buildings and across the Parana one can see mysterious Paraguay. Also, consider a day trip to nearby Paso de la Patria with its fish restaurants and sandy streets. My advice for bus trips is not to exceed 600 or 700 kilometres, as in that way you can get a bus at, say, 9pm and arrive somewhere after sleeping (hopefully) early in the morning. If you were to go all the way to Salta from Iguazu, then you will arrive exhausted, bored and cranky. Don't chew too much off in Argentina. It is huge. If you try to see you too much, you end up seeing very little.

I really can't remember. I talked to them sometime ago and I believe they mentioned a stop in Resistencia, Chaco. This is why the trip takes so long. Best will be to contact them. It is not a straight trip.
