Hotels in Tucumán: A personal journey to the heart of Northern Argentina
Tucumán, ring a bell? If you are an intrepid traveler in search of unforgettable experiences, you probably are. This province, known as “the garden of the republic”, is a jewel in the north of Argentina, and staying here is like immersing yourself in a magical tale of history, nature and culture. Let me tell you about my experiences!
My first time in a hotel in Tucumán
I arrived in Tucumán on a warm afternoon, and the first thing that struck me was the hospitality of its people. Did you know that human warmth can be as welcoming as the hotel you are staying in? My choice was a colonial hotel in the historic center, with wrought iron balconies and internal courtyards full of flowers. It was like being in a novel!
Between mountains and sugarcane fields: a unique estancia
Tucumán’s landscape is varied: mountains, jungles, rivers and even sugar cane fields. So why not stay in places that allow you to experience all this up close? Imagine waking up in a cabin in the middle of the mountains, with the sound of birds singing. Or, how about an estancia on a farm where sugar cane is grown and the famous Tucuman sugar is produced?
Culture and history in every corner
If you are a history buff, you will be fascinated to know that the Independence of Argentina was declared in Tucumán. And yes, there are hotels that tell this story with their walls, their architecture and even with the legends of their corridors. During my stay, I loved chatting with the locals and learning about the anecdotes of the region, stories you won’t find in any book.
What should not be missing in a good hotel in Tucumán?
With all that I have told you, you might think that any place is perfect to stay. But do you know what really makes the difference? Authenticity. A good hotel in Tucumán should offer you, besides comfort, an authentic experience: local gastronomy, typical activities, and, of course, that special touch that makes you feel that you are really in the north of Argentina.
