Lovely Way to Spend Time

There are lots of historical places and shops to look at all within walking distance. The town centre is looked after very well and I always felt safe.

What a great city. Spanish architecture mixed with Quetchua culture. All kinds of restaurants, museums, markets, etc. Weather was cool but nice-make sure to wear your sunscreen, though. The area felt safe, very little panhandling and the haggling over prices was fun. the San Pedro market was excellent although as a norte Americano it was difficult to pass by many... More

There is so much to see here, but be sure to take a well-informed guide with you. The remains of the Inca civilization are all around you, but you must know where to look!

Beautiful city to explore. The people are extremely helpful and nice. Don't miss the inexpensive massage. One hour massage including hot stones for less than 30.00$
