We decided to visit the planetarium based on the great reviews on Tripadvisor although this place was not listed in Lonely Planet's SA on a shoestring. It turned out that this was not the wisest financial decision as the cost of 50 soles/ pax was a tad too expensive, given that we didn't get any actual viewing of the stars due to the rain. The 1hr+ presentation was rather interesting with a good introduction to Incan astronomical beliefs, plus Ana Maria is a very knowledgeable, friendly and engaging host. While the weather is beyond's anyone's control, we felt that the planetarium could have reduced the entrance price of 50 soles by at least 10-15 soles as a matter of goodwill when it rains. I also think if the group is big (10-20), the price should also reflect the time one gets at the telescope.
