    Please note that folks looking to visit Jujuy (Quebrada de Humahuaca and surrounding areas) may need to consider options for a plan B. The area is in somewhat of a turmoil after social protests turned ugly... plenty of road blocks and there is no way to enter into San Salvador de Jujuy so all the tourists sites that are north of the city cannot be reached. I was just in Jujuy last week and had to turn back to Salta after the Provincial Police had set up road blocks 2 miles ahead of the protesters.... things will take 1-2 weeks to calm down but until then I think its better to write off the area.
