On the way to the Sacred Valley from Cusco, our tour guide suggested a stop here, the place that became known to our family as "The Alpaca Place." Everything the other reviewers said is true; this is a wonderful little stop. But one thing you should know: the products sold here are superior to everything else we saw all week... More

My husband and I stopped by the museum as part of a day tour around Cusco. This place is really cool and a must stop if you are in the area! First you can visit the museum which showcase the 4 Andean camels: llamas, vicunas, alpacas, and guanacos. Outside the museum, you can see and feed all the different camels.... More

This was a nice change of pace from some of the historical and archaeological sites. It's a great opportunity to learn about the different kinds of animals that provide different kinds of wool to community textile businesses. You can see llamas and alpacas and others up close and even feed them some grasses. Throughout the rest of the premises you... More

You can learn all about these animals in this great place. Not only do they have several live animals of the different species; but also, they have a small great museum about it! By the way, they have a store where they sell a lot of really nice handicraft products.

This was an interesting place to visit on our tour of Peru. I especially liked it because they offer beautifully handcrafted alpaca and llama goods for reasonable prices, and a good portion of the money made goes to the villages of the people who produce them.

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
