Coordinates: 27°29'39.30"S // 64°51'28.04"O

This winter tourism centre, situated 67 kilometres from Santiago del Estero, owes its fame to its closeness to the thermal beaches of Río Hondo, close to the Dulce River, called YucaRupaj by the Indians of Upper Peru.

The Thermal Springs of Río Hondo are located on National Road 9 and lie over a mineral-thermal spring with a radius of 15 km, consisting of 14 mesothermal aquifers with a great variety of minerals and wonderful healing qualities. The city has a great tourism infrastructure, with many hotels and various recreational, sporting, gastronomical and musical activities, among others. Its average annual temperature means it can be visited all year round.

The National Centre of Congresses and Conventions, and the General San Martin Cultural Centre, are venues for concerts, theatre plays and national and international congresses. Recommended visits, among others, are the church of Our Lady of Perpetual Help and the neoclassical-style Provincial Casino.

In Güemes Park stands the San Martín Cultural and Crafts centre with weaved objects on sale, expressions of an ancient artisanal tradition passed down from generation to generation.
