Jujuy

Jujuy is the most northwestern province of Argentina, bordering with Bolivia to the north and Chile to the west, and otherwise surrounded by Salta province. Sugarcane, tobacco and mining are the major industries of the province, along with tourism which is steadily growing.

One of the features of Jujuy is its great variety of land formations, from the Yungas jungle shared with Bolivia and the 3500 metre high altiplano plateau, to the desert area of Salinas Grandes and the Quebrada de Humahuaca - a narrow mountain valley which was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003. Jujuy also retains a large presence of indigenous culture, especially that of the Aymarán and Quechuan people.
