Salta and the northwest Andes: Hosteria Casa Andina

Visit Us

Hosteria Casa Andina

Tolar Grande is an isolated village – virtually the only community of any size in Argentina’s remote, chilly, high altitude Puna desert in the northwest Andes. Although nowadays it is developing and new facilities are being added, the basic infrastructure is meagre indeed, so the discovery of this friendly and cosy property is a delight for visitors. It is owned and managed by the local community). It’s simple but attractive inside with tiled floors and beamed ceilings. 

Although the guest house is not staffed during the day, you’ll get a warm welcome when you arrive. There are just four compact guest rooms and a suite;  each has heating and hot water shower. The plain white walls and tiled floors are offset by classic puna tones of slate and red in their fabrics.

One of the nicest things about this little hotel is its relaxing, toasty lounge, heated by a wood burning stove, with sofas and a complimentary tea/coffee station. Simple meals, including breakfast are taken at either of the two comedors (simple eateries) which are within 100m of the hosteria.

What our experts say

The Casa Andina is a very welcome retreat after a day’s travel out in the salty wilderness of the Andean Puna.
