Upon landing, we grabbed a cab straight to our hotel, Casa Wayra B&B in Miraflores. This was a cheap stay in a good location.
We made our way over to the Marcelo Batata Culinary Experience. The 5 hour class was quite the thorough experience that truly gives you a better appreciation of Peruvian food and how to properly taste them.
As part of our acclimatization process, we planned 2 days in the Sacred Valley with two separate operators.
A company called KB Tambo offered a “Super Day” private tour option that had all the things we were looking for. I was quite amazed with everything we saw on this day trip with the highlight being the salt mines and the Moray circles.
We wanted to go a little off the beaten path. There were less options for this and one company that really stood out was Andean Encounters. What stood out the most from them was that one of his itineraries included time with a local family.
