This project was started by three brothers and their goal was to create a sustainable authentic cultural tourist area. They have a number of animals on site. Llamas, alpacas, vicuna etc. These are all animals that the Peruvian people depend upon for either food or their wool for weaving. They also have a small museum in which you can learn... More

This is the place to be in order to get your Llama experience, a mandatory stop, this little farm/shop lets you understand the difference between all the different types of camelids up close and take pictures while you feed some of them. You'll also see natives working different kinds of fabrics and clothing apparel and get to buy some if... More

This was the first visit on our day of touring the Sacred Valley and we LOVED it! Our family loves alpacas, llamas and vicuna, and we love textiles so this was made to order and required visiting. The facility is clean, well organized, provides opportunity to feed and pet the animals and then to wash your hands. The progressive order... More

This was a stop along the way to compare the camelid species of South America. It is located right along the side of the road. It was nicely laid out and clean, not like some farms we have visited in the past. The guides explain the differences between the species and cross breeds. You are able to hand feed the... More

We stopped here on a tour. You can see llamas, vicunas and guanacos up close and feed them. I think the best part though is the gift shop that features locally made textiles. These include high quality sweaters, wraps, scarves, gloves and many other items. Again they are made locally. They are a bit pricey but a lot nicer than... More

This was a nice little stop for my friends and I when we stayed in Cusco. It is a good place to wander around and observe the llamas and alpacas (you get to learn the difference). There are barrel fulls of fresh grass that you can take and feed to the animals. Unfortunately, we found that neither llama nor alpaca... More

We loved feeding and petting the llamas and alpacas, and watching the vicunas! We were on a guided tour and our guide explained all of the different types of llamas and alpacas as well as showed us the process of making the yarn/wool. It was very interesting! We were not pressured to go into the shop whatsoever. We did browse... More

A small site of a social project that combines animals and weaving. Learn the difference between llamas, alpacas and vicunas; with a hands on experience of feeding them. See how the wools are woven and the range of colours.

This low-key attraction is part zoo, part crafts exhibit, part shopping. Go for the first two. The presentation of traditional dying and weaving is well-done. Of course, the stars are the animals in close-up pens near the entrance. Traveler Tip: For the most enjoyable experience if you're with a group, skip the pens and go directly to the field where...
