We did not stay here but was brought here for lunch after a long drive in from Arequipa. We were here in June, which is high tourist season, and we were literally by ourselves. The hotel is a delight. A simple gem with features first world inhabitants take for granted-like toilets and running water-that are not readily available to the residents of Corporaque. Corporaque is very quiet. Its simply a little village in the hills that has gone about its business of subsistance farming on ancient Incan terraces for hundreds of years. We came across a woman winnowing her quinoa the old fashioned way (throwing it into the breeze). It was then that I realized that while electricity has reached this part of Peru, and there is some tourism, most of the people in these parts seem to survive in much the way their ancestors did after the colonization by Spain. No one is here to entertain you, there is no time for that. But this is how life was and still is for many. Enjoy this vision of the past, while staying in the comfort of this hotel. Besides, you wont find many hotels with a llama to keep the grass trimmed.
