Honestly, I cannot enough about Second Home Cusco and its owner, Carlos. We arrived at Second Home after a day of traveling from Puno on the Andean Explorer, and Carlos had generously arranged complimentary transfer for us.
We checked into our nice comfy room, and got a good nights sleep, before rising for a leisurely breakfast and chat with Carlos. We set out exploring on our own for the first half of the day, and after a yummy lunch a Pacha Papa, did an arranged tour through Second Home--seeing the ruins around Cusco. We ended our night with a yummy, and cheap, dinner at the creperie just a block away from Second Home.,
The next day, our Cusco guide returned, to take us on a guided tour of the Sacred Valley--ending in Ollantaytambo. Knowing that we could not take our large bags with us on the train from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes--Carlos generously agreed to store them, until we returned.
After two nights in first Ollantaytambo, then Aguas Calientes, we came back for a final night at Second Home before heading to the airport, and back to the States.
Not only wer the location great, the accomodations comfortable--but Carlos himself was one of the highlights of our trip. His warmth and hospitality truly made it a second home.More
