Santa Maria (Catamarca)
 Get in
From Buenos Aires you have to take a bus or fly to Tucuman. Santa Maria is 180 Km. from there. You have a 3-hour drive from Tucuman, or you can take a bus that will get you there in 4/5 hours.
If you go to Salta, you have a 3.5-hour drive. This is the best option. You can take also a bus, but it makes to many stops so your trip never ends.
