Among the activities and excursions, you can go hiking along the different trails that the region has to offer, such as the Paseo de los Colorados, a 3 kilometre trail that starts in the village, continues through the local cemetery and continues along the dreamlike Cerro de los Siete Colores (Hill of the Seven Colours). If you prefer something quieter, you can enjoy a relaxing bike ride along the paths that surround the village.
As for gastronomy, the typical food of the region is a real pleasure for the palate, you can taste the empanada jujeña, a typical dish.
