My husband and I had the privilege of staying at Wilka T'ika for 5 nights in the end of January. The guide books tell you not to go to Peru during the rainy season, but they're wrong. The whole countryside is lush and green and there are few tourists. At Wilka T'ika we stayed in one of their uniquely beautiful rooms, enjoyed the sacred gardens and the beauty everywhere, treated ourselves to a massage and to some time on Carol's crystal bed, and ate the carefully prepared and delicious meals. Carol Cumes has created a magnificent space and has done so with deep respect for the people and the land. She is to be commended. We would recommend this place to anyone who wants to bask in the beauty and serenity it offers.
