Stayed here with a tour group and the staff were very accommodating as we had to leave our big bags here while on the Inca trail. Rooms are cheerful and clean with wonderful down filled duvets. Just the thing for the cold Peruvian nights!. I would stay here again.

Creatures that can broach realms, like frogs who live underwater and on land are particularly esteemed. Huacas, meaning sacredness, are also worshipped and are often natural features which bring them closer to the other realms like mountains reaching to the heavens and ...
We had decided a good while before leaving England, that we weren't going to tackle the 4 day Classic Inca Trail, mainly because of my fitness level and Tony's knee. We did want to do a hike to Machu Picchu though so looked at some of the alternatives. Many of them are just as difficult due to altitude but we settled on a 2 day trip with a full day of hiking. Apparently we would be on an Inca Trail for about 4 hours following the Urubamba River to Wiñay Wayna and then ...
