An unexpected, yet delightful side trip on the way to Awana Kancha, Ccochahuasi (Km 22 on the Cuzco-Pisac highway) is an animal sanctuary privately run by a family.
Animals from all walks of life that have been injured or abused are rescued and cared for by the staff.
I was able to get up close and personal with so many animals, from Vicunas to Condors and this here Toucan.
Entry is by donation. I will glad that I left a nice contribution as I was able to leave with some fun locally made souvenirs from the park that also made great holiday gifts.
