Carmen Bajo 120, Cusco 08000, Peru
In the San Blas district of Peru, was the restaurant Pachapapa. This was by far the best meal we had in Peru. It was nestled in a courtyard and all the dishes were prepared in an oven next to us. Quite spectacular. DELICIOUS!

Calle Carmen Alto 227, Cusco 08000, Peru

Pisac, Peru
A great place to find local goods.

Urubamba, Peru
With limited time, we had to forego hiking the Inca trail to get to Machu Picchu. The alternative? Taking the train down the Urubamba river valley. The ride from Cuzco to Aguas Calientes, at the base of the mountain crowned by the ruined Inca...
