Heaven in the Sacred Valley
The Sacred Valley is known for being an adventurer's paradise, with long hikes to ancient ruins, kayaking, paragliding and more. But for me, after a few days of packed sightseeing in Cusco and Machu Picchu, staying one night at the Hotel Rio Sagrado was a breath of fresh air, quite literally. I didn't want to do anything but sit on my balcony and watch the flow of the Urubamba River. This is where those from the bigger cities in Peru, like Lima, come to get away for the weekend.
