Where is Arena del Rio?? From Cafayate I went to Belen, Chilecito, then Mendoza.
And you know my vote is to go to Bolivia.
We took the same route (in reverse). There was water on the road, but just a little for us, the kind you slow down and splash through.
Maybe I have the name wrong, but Area del Rio was just south of Cafayate. Maybe just out side of Colalao del Valle.
