Yerba Buena

It is well-known as the “Garden City”. Located at only 12 km from San Miguel de Tucumán, this city keeps growing every year. Here you will find a perfect combination between hills and nightlife. There are several bars, discos, pubs and shopping centers. It was not by chance that the famous Paul Groussac mentioned it as “… a picturesque and happy situation between the hills and the city…”

Nature has blessed this area with stunning landscapes in order to enjoy recreational walks, sport and recreation activities. Some activities tourists will be able to enjoy are mountain biking, trekking, hiking and horse-riding.

Shopping centers, department stores, bars, pubs, all kind of restaurants, night clubs, banks, accommodations, among others services have made Yerba Buena one of the standout destinations in the province.

One of the most recommendable places in Yerba Buena is Horco Molle Wild Life Park which belongs to the National University of Tucumán. Visitors will observe native flora and fauna species. A beautiful barbeque area is available to spend time with the family.

In order to go there, Sarmiento Avenue to the west in San Miguel de Tucumán should be taken. After that, go on through Belgrano Avenue which is connected with Perón Avenue. Going to the final roundabout, you will find its entrance.

Another landmark in the “Garden Citiy” is Percy Hill Park. More than 80 species of birds are found on this magnificent Yungas area, the jungle in Tucumán.
