About
We are an Cultural interpretation center about how the Andean people understand the skies. The explanation in two rooms give us a great perspective, in dome we learn about southern sky and finally, if weather allows, we enjoy some stargazing!

I enjoy astronomy. I would only recommend this visit if you are into this. It's mostly educational. Also, go during the dry season when it isn't cloudy. If it's cloudy there won't be much to see in the skies.

This ‘tour’ is way to overprized in my opinion. You will be told about how the Inka farmers used the stars for their agriculture, which is pretty nice to know. Then will be taken to a ‘dome’ to get some more information about formations of...More

I don’t think so as they pick you up from the town and drive the groups there.

The cheapest and best way is to organize the official tour from the planetarium. Call there and you can book your trip. It starts from Cuzco Place regocijo: Website of the planetarium;

It is good… Iglesia De San Francisco (& catacombs) is only a couple blocks from Plaza de Armas & the Cathedral, so you should switch it to day 1. On Day 2, you could do Museo Larco in the morning (30+ minutes ride to Pueblo Libre), maybe have an early lunch at their restaurant or return to Miraflores/Barranco to explore the area. Shopping Center Larcomoar is in miraflores by the boarldwalk & not far from parque del Amor. In Cusco, don’t forget Sacsaywaman & the other ruins near the...More

Hello all...hubby and I will be in Peru March 2015. I have read this forum several times a week for a few months and have only seen this mentioned a few times. The reviews look great although there are not a lot of them. I did a search and found a few posts. Any thoughts about this experience? This would be a first for us.

As my trip is approaching I thought I would bump this up from November to see if anyone is familiar with this tour. Thanks!
