Meet a Local Host

I'm passionate about working as a tour guide in Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu because it gives me the opportunity to appreciate this wonderful country, its culture, nature and traditions. I love my job because every day I get to show the world how great and unique my home country, Peru is, and my favorite places - Machu Picchu and Sacred Valley.

Hike to Mandor Waterfall (Aguas Calientes)

On this perfect nature walk, you might encounter butterflies and birds, even orchids at the right time of year. A private nature reserve located 4km from Machu Picchu Pueblo (Aguas Calientes), where you can walk into bio diverse gardens to learn and enjoy. You’ll understand and appreciate the restoration, conservation and preservation of the habitat of hundreds of species of flora and fauna in a vulnerable state, due to many factors such as climate change and human impact.

Paso Horse Show

The Peruvian Paso horse has been bred in this region for centuries and they are known for their smooth gait even while traversing the terraced landscape of the Sacred Valley. At Wayra Ranch in the Sacred Valley, see a demonstration on these beautiful horses and traditional folkloric dances performed with the horses. You can even take a quick ride on one of the horses if you are adventurous!

Alpaca Shopping

Peru is known for its Alpaca wool so you really can’t go home without any. Many vendors in Peru will try to sell you what you believe to be 100% alpaca, but you can rest assured that the sweaters, scarves, and blankets at “Alpaca’s Best” are the real deal.

Tipon Ruins

Tipon is an important set of Inca ruins known for its excellent hydraulic engineering work and it is composed by an agricultural group of platforms with long steps and ducts elaborated in limestone. This impressive system of irrigation is still used in agriculture. Some of the fountains in Tipon have ceremonial purposes. Tipon is considered an Inca temple dedicated to the water cult. This is also a great spot to try Cuy, a traditional Incan meal of guinea pig.

Maras Salt Mines

Definitely a must see in the Sacred Valley are the salt mines. A stroll through and you’ll be amazed at how the Incas built this maze of hand-made channels that divert saltwater springs into the exposure of the sun. Once the water evaporates, the salt is collected to be sold – an ancient old tradition still in use today. Beyond the engineering, the views from the mines are breathtaking!

Cusco

Quinta Eulalia

Cusco’s version of the sidewalk café is the quinta—an open-air restaurant with affordably priced Peruvian fare. Quinta Eulalia is Cusco’s oldest quinta, and it offers a little history with a lot of food.

Restaurante Illary

Restaurante Illary offers a fine-dining experience in the Hotel Monasterio. Savor the alpaca tenderloin in the sacred setting of this former monastery.

Alpaca’s Best

Many will try to sell you what you believe to be 100% alpaca, but you can rest assured that the sweaters, scarves, and blankets at this shop are the real deal.

Carlos Chaquiras

Handmade silver jewelry is an excellent purchase in Cusco. If you want to know the name behind your special find, purchase a piece from this local craftsman.

Café Ayllu

This bustling coffee shop is famous for its ponche de leche, a beverage made with milk and a shot of pisco, and its lenguas, a flaky pastry with a crème filling.

Barrio de San Blas

If you can make the steep walk from the Plaza de Armas to this charming neighborhood, you won’t regret it. Panoramic views of the city can be seen outside the artists’ workshops that line the streets of this picturesque area.

Artesanías Mendivil

There are many handicraft shops in Cusco. This one is known internationally for its saint figures with elongated necks.

Museum of Popular Art

Founded in 1937, this museum houses an interesting collection of masks and other carved items. Its most interesting display is its large collection of dolls.

Tambomachay

Cusco may be the gateway to Machu Picchu, but there are smaller ruins you shouldn’t miss. Water still flows over a system of complicated canals at this amazing site—also known as the Inca Baths.

Inka Museum

Raised on Inca foundations by Admiral Aldrete Maldonado in the early-17th century, this home has a magnificent baroque doorway emblazoned with the admiral’s coat of arms, a large arched patio, and salons with coffered ceilings. It exhibits keros (carved ceremonial goblets), weavings, mummies, and silver and gold figurines, as well as Inca weapons, tools, and ceramics.

Awanacancha

Enjoy this area where South American camelidae are bred. Learn about the superb fibers that come from llamas, alpacas, and vicunas. Also learn about the ancient weaving techniques, which are still in use.

Seminario Ceramic Studio - Urubamba

Pablo Seminario has been dedicated to the discovery of the techniques and design from ancient Peruvian cultures. Mr. Seminario presents a new art expression providing continuity to these cultural inheritances.

Andahuaylillas

Enjoy this pretty town 35 km (1 hour) from Cusco along the paved highway to Puno. Its unique church, San Pedro de Andahuaylillas, is the biggest attraction for visitors.

Incanto Restaurant

Located a few meters off the Main Square of the fascinating city of Cusco in an old Inca palace, the new Incanto is definitely worth a visit. Welcoming and contemporary, its varied menu contains more than 80 dishes. The restaurant offers Italian food, pasta, and various specialties from the grill cooked with an original touch and Peruvian ingredients.

Cicciolina

On the second floor of a colonial-era townhouse, this restaurant has a unique personality. La Panaderia serves gourmet breakfasts with breads straight out of the oven. The tapas bar is a perfect relaxing place to enjoy a glass of wine and some tapas. The main dining room offers an unforgettable fusion of Mediterranean dishes made with Andean ingredients.

ChocoMuseum Workshop

Learn about the history of the Cacao and the chocolate, the Cacao’s tree and its small chocolate factory where the products are made. Enjoy a workshop in the Museum: Roasting of the cacao beans, cacao husk removal, grinding of the cacao nibs on a metate with a mano (the way the aztecs did) or with a batang (like Incas here in Peru), refining and conching of the cacao paste in a melangeur.

Tipon and Piquillacta

Tipon is important for its excellent hydraulic engineering work and it is composed by an agricultural group of platforms with long steps and ducts elaborated in limestone. This impressive system of irrigation is still used in agriculture. Some of the fountains in Tipon must have ceremonial purposes. Tipon is considered an Inca temple dedicated to the water cult.

Piquillacta is a national archaeological park with landscapes of great interest. This archaeological Pre-Inca citadel was one of the most spectacular regional centers of the Wari culture. The constructions of Piquillacta are composed by more than 700 structures displayed in a harmonious and symmetric way, with different buildings that should have sheltered a population of about ten thousand people.

Mandor waterfall

It’s located one hour by walking from Aguas Calientes; find lots of butterflies and birds, and maybe even orchids at the right time of year.
