“great area!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

The San Blas area of Cusco is really nice. All those little streets (up and down) with lots of restaurants, bars, shops (artifacts, art, crafts, etc) Nice little square at the church.
It has a really nice atmosphere and that just alongside the city center.

“Artsy community off the beaten path”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Ditch the larger artesenal markets and get your goods here. This quaint community is tiny but packed with craft stores, antique stores and some of the best dining in Cuzco. I really wish we had stayed in this area.

The nicest little streets, perfect for spending a day chilling your way around Cusco! Certainly the place to live if you'll be staying in Cusco for a long time.

“Cute artisan neighbourhood with places for lunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Cute little neighbourhood for an afternoon stroll. You most likely walk through it anyway as Cusco is relatively small. Many artisan workshops and stores. Great place for lunch is apparently Jack's bar.

“Saturday Artesenal Market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Did not feel like I was getting sold to by snake oil salesman. A more relaxing place to peruse some interesting trinkets on a Saturday (believe Sat only).
