Because of a lack of planning on our part around the busy Easter weekend, we did only an expedited trip into the Colca Canyon. A long bus ride brought us to the canyon rim town of Cabanaconde, a great spot to check out the massive Andean Condors that frequent the area. Our destination was a patch of green in the bottom of the desert canyon known as the Oasis, a spring-fed area where a a handful of rustic guesthouses and campgrounds operate, offering food, accommodation, and great pools amongst the palms We got to camp for one night before the hike up and out.
