Ideally located for business travelers and leisure visitors alike, the Miraflores Park Hotel is within walking distance from Lima’s financial district and the Larcomar Entertainment Center, boasting some of the city’s best shopping. The sleek, modern guestrooms feature all the comforts of home, but it is the rooftop that reveals the hotel’s true glamour, with a pool, spa and views of the Pacific Ocean.

The poolside restaurant, the Observatory, serves an innovative menu prepared by Chef Federico Ziegler, while the lively lobby bar, Dr. Jekyll and Mr.

Hyde, inspired by the Robert Louis Stevenson novel, feels traditionally British with a dark wood staircase, large paintings and leather-back sofas. Mesa18 is the newest restaurant.

Luxury 5* Miraflores Park Hotel Lima Junior Suites with Ocean Views

The Lima Gourmet Company Gastronomic Tour

Tourism in Lima Peru, once omitted from travelers’ lists while visiting the country, has been steadily attracting the attention of globe- trotters and adventure-seekers.

While there is an abundance of tours in Lima that follow the typical tourist circuits led by traditional guided monologues, we believe

that a hands-on experience, savoring the food, chatting with real limeños and visiting the top restaurants, districts and historical points the locals prefer is a much more dynamic and exciting way to see the city.

We’ve designed this Lima Peru tour to be an ideal introduction to the city and Peruvian culture so that you can get a good feel of the city in just five hours.

Now you have no excuse not to fall in love with the city before heading to Machu Picchu, the Amazon or even if you’re just here for work.

This Lima Peru tour starts at a local roastery, where they hand-pick the coffee beans daily, for an organic Peruvian coffee. You will also tour the colonial streets of the bohemian district, Barranco, home to artists, musicians and the city’s top art galleries.

From here you’ll visit a traditional market in the San Isidro district to try exotic fruits and local products and learn the ancient myths and legends associated with them.

The third stop is one of the city’s top seafood restaurants (cebichería), Embarcadero 41 Fusión, on Avenida La Mar in the  Miraflores district – a stop other tours in Lima won’t take you. You’ll discover the secrets to the perfect Ceviche and Pisco Sour as you prepare the dish and cocktail yourself with the head chef and bartender.

The last stop is for lunch at  la Huaca Pucllana, a restaurant within a pre-Incan archeological complex – undoubtedly a highlight of tourism in Lima Peru. This prestigious restaurant is so impressive that the King of Spain, Mick Jagger, Bill and Hillary Clinton, just to name a few, have made sure not to miss it during their trips to Lima. You’ll enjoy a variety of gourmet Peruvian dishes as well as four different desserts and another pisco-based cocktail.

Luxury 5 * Palacio Nazarenas

No. 1 Hotel in South America – Tripadvisor 2015

No. 5 Hotel in the World – Tripadvisor 2015

Set in a tranquil plaza behind Cusco’s main square, this former palace and convent emerged from years of restoration to become one of the city’s most exclusive hotels.

Step past walls of Inca stones and into a cloistered courtyard with an ancient fountain at its heart. Then be surprised as contemporary Cusco comes to the fore: a fabulous spa, the city’s first outdoor pool and stylish restaurants serving cutting-edge local cuisine.

This intimate urban retreat has just 55 suites, each enriched with oxygen and with its own private bar where guests can create drinks accented with fresh ingredients grown at and around the hotel.

Senzo Restaurant

A destination Bistro, Senzo Restaurant offers exceptional cuisine in a vibrant yet refined atmosphere. By adding a modern twist to fresh regional ingredients Chef Virgilio Martinez presents diners with exquisite tastes and unique textures.

The à la carte and individual table buffet breakfasts feature a nutritious, balanced and creative selection. The dining menu showcases contemporary Andean cuisine and can be tailored to suit the diners’ personal preferences.

Specialty dishes feature indigenous herbs and are decorated with edible flowers, many grown throughout the hotel.

Dining at the Monasterio

While staying at Palacio Nazarenas, enjoy the renowned restaurants at Hotel Monasterio, our sister hotel.  Sample the Mediterranean cuisine and distinctive charm of Illariy Restaurant.

At El Tupay, French- inspired dishes and Bohemian Nights with local singers are not to be missed.  The relaxed atmosphere of the Lobby Bar is ideal for pre- or post-dinner drinks.  Hotel Monasterio is located right next to Palacio Nazarenas and you may add any dining expense to your suite’s account.

Senzo Bar

Cocktails and other refreshments can be enjoyed at the only open-air heated pool in Cuzco.  The pool menu features nutritious options consisting of light, colorful dishes and a selection of South American wines. A traditional fruit and vegetable cart also sits by the pool bringing the color and fun of a Peruvian market to Palacio Nazarenas. Choose your perfect combination for a freshly-prepared juice or an exotic fruit salad.

Junior Suites

Junior Suites are located in both the ancient part of the hotel and the new section – close to the pool.

A choice of bedding includes one king or two twin poster beds. Suite amenities include complimentary full buffet breakfast or are room only – depending on the rate plan selected.

Also included are complimentary wireless Internet access, butler service, widescreen LED satellite TV with premium channels, CD and DVD players, iPhone and iPad for guest use, iPod dock, personal safe large enough for a notebook PC and a well-stocked mini-bar.

The sumptuous marble bathroom is equipped with a separate bath and shower, dual wash basins and luxurious bath amenities.

Private Afternoon Cusco City Tour

Tambomachay – This was an Inca sanctuary dedicated to the cult of water, a place reserved for Inca Royalty.

Puca Pucara – This is an Inca archaeological site located again on the peak of a hill and is thought to be a military position and an administrative center.

Qenko – A sanctuary dedicated to the adoration of animals, and consists of ruins formed by a rocky site with stairs in a zigzag, and a main building similar to a circular amphitheater where 19 window sills are located as a way of seats.

Sacsayhuamán – Its construction took over seven decades and required the work of 20,000 men approximately, both for the foundations and hewn stone works, the transportation of materials, carving and stones setting.

Cusco Cathedral – One of the finest Colonial Cathedrals in the Americas.

Coricancha – Originally named Inti Qancha (‘ Temple of the Sun’) was the most important temple in the Inca Empire, dedicated primarily to Inti, the Sun God.

5* Palacio Nazarenas Hotel – Cusco  Junior Suites

Full Day Private Sacred Valley of the Inca Tour

Pisac Market | Pisac Ruins | Lunch Posada Tunupa | Ollantaytambo

Pisac Market

A famed hill town, Pisac is a great place to purchase top quality Andean knitwear at lower prices than visitors will find in major cities during their travels in Peru.

Woven blankets, tapestries, and alpaca garments such as sweaters and mittens, colorful fabric and accessories are found in abundance at the Pisac market in addition to pottery, jewelry, and other handicrafts.

Though Pisac’s biggest crafts market takes place on Sunday, you will find fewer tourists and smaller crowds in general if you visit the weekday craft markets.

The village’s largest produce market is also held on Sunday, bringing a multitude of vendors from the countryside to supply the local population with produce, fresh from the fields.

Pisac Inca Ruins

It’s not hard to succumb to the charms of sunny Pisac, a bustling colonial village at the base of a spectacular Inca fortress perched on a mountain spur.  Its pull is universal and recent years have seen an influx of expats and new age followers in search of an Andean Shangri- la. Located just 33km northeast of Cuzco by a paved road, it’s the most convenient starting point to the Sacred Valley.

The ruins are separated along the ridge into four groups: Pisac, Intihuatana, Q’allaqasa, and Kinchiracay. The Intihuatana group includes the Temple of the Sun, baths, altars, water fountains, a ceremonial platform, and an Intihuatana, a volcanic outcrop carved into a «hitching post for the Sun» (or Inti).

With military, religious, and agricultural structures, the site served at least a triple purpose. Researchers believe that Pisac defended the southern entrance to the Sacred Valley, while Choquequirao defended the western entrance, and the fortress at Ollantaytambo the northern. Inca Pisac controlled a route which connected the Inca Empire with the border of the rain forest.

Ollantaytambo

After lunch, we proceed onto Ollantaytambo an attractive little town located at the western end of the Sacred Valley. The town has been built on top of original Inca foundations and is the best surviving example of Inca town planning.

The town is located at the foot of some spectacular Inca ruins which protected the strategic entrance to the lower Urubamba Valley. The temple area is at the top of steep terracing which helped to provide excellent defenses.

Stone used for these buildings was brought from a quarry high up on the opposite side of the Urubamba River – an incredible feat involving the efforts of thousands of workers. The complex was still under construction at the time of the conquest and was never completed.

We include for you a Superior Mountain View Room with Private Terrace for your night of Luxury at Machu Picchu.

Guided Tour of Machu Picchu (2 – 3 Hours)

The ‘Holy Grail’ for lovers of Inca monuments, the enigmatic lost city of Machu Picchu is the most famous archaeological site in all of South America and possibly the world.

The spectacular collection of temples, terraced hills and plazas was the mountain-top citadel of the Inca under Pachacutec and Tupac Yupanqui, until the coming of the Europeans with Pizarro.

It may have the most familiar name, but Machu Picchu has refused to reveal many of its mysteries, including the secrets of its construction, function,

and demise. The overgrown ruins were discovered by US historian Hiram Bingham in 1911, and the quality of the stonework hints that it was an extremely important ceremonial site.

The remains are thought to date from around 1450, built at the height of the Inca Empire, and as they escaped being plundered by the Spanish they include semi-intact icons and shrines that were defaced or removed at other sites.

Entering the site, a set of steps leads to the ruined Temple of the Sun and a series of altars and niches. Highlights include the remains of ceremonial baths, the Sacred Plaza with its tremendous view across the Urubamba River valley, a rare shrine to the sun, and a labyrinth of passageways and cells.

Today you will enjoy further Private Guided Tours of Machu Picchu.

You may start at Dawn or as you wish. All tours are included and you are only limited by your time and energy.

The Sun Gate (2 Hours)

Inti Punku the Sun Gate marks the entrance to Machu Picchu.

It is a one-hour uphill hike to the southeast of the Sanctuary, climbing more than 300 meters. The hike is on the original Inca trail and is paved with Inca stones.

There is a spectacular view from the gate (pictured).

Apu Machu Picchu (4 to 5 Hours Roundtrip)

The hike to the summit of Apu Machu Picchu is 2 ½ hours and can be quite steep in places.

This trail, accessed from Machu Picchu, joins parts of the Inca trail leading to the Sun Gate before climbing to the mountain’s highest point. From there, enjoy the view of soaring eagles as well as Machu Picchu and other significant ruins in the area, such as Putukusi, Huayna Picchu, Salkantay mountain and the Vilcanota River view.

This is a breathtaking hike, lot of orchids along the way, birds in the bushy areas, and with every stop the view is gets better and better.  The climb is 600 meters uphill, so a reasonable level of fitness is required.

*** Access to Apu Machu Picchu is controlled by special tickets which need to be purchased in advance by us. Access is

07:00 – 11:00.  Please ask to have these tickets included in your tour if desired***

Inka Bridge (Bridge 1 Hour Round Trip)

This hike is to the south west of Machu Picchu, a nice original trail that overlooks the Aobamba valley and the Hydro-electric plant.

This Inca Bridge is a part of a mountain trail that heads west from Machu Picchu. The trail is a stone path, part of which is cut into a cliff face.  A twenty-foot gap was left in this section of the carved cliff face, over a 1,900 feet drop that could be bridged with two tree trunks. When the tree trunks were removed then the trail became impassable to outsiders. The path is narrow and paved with original Inca stones.

The steep trail continues on and climbs the side of the mountain, leading adventurous travelers to a remote corner of this archaeological site. In addition to a magnificent bird’s-eye view of Machu Picchu, the summit also offers a perfect vantage point to the canyon of the Vilcanota River, the mountain of Putukusi and the distant snow-capped Andean peaks.

Huayna Picchu (3 – 4 Hours)

Huayna Picchu is the mountain you see behind Machu Picchu.  Towering above the north end of Machu Picchu this steep mountain is often seen in the backdrop to the classic photos of the ruins.

The mountain is steep, but stone steps are laid along most of the way and where the mountain is steeper you will find steel cables used as handrails. For fit people it is not a difficult climb.

Very Limited Access!

Only 400 people are allowed to hike Huayna Picchu each day. You have to sign in at the entrance gate. The first 200 tickets are available for the 8:00am hike. The second 200 are available at 10:00am.

***You should buy these special tickets in advance with us to be sure you will have space for this hike***

Salt Flat Tours

Service Notes / Instructions
Tours You will cross again the Salt Flat to visit the Galaxy Cave, the Devil`s Cave and the Burned Town of San Pedro de Quemez.
San Pedro de Quemez Hotel Salt Flat Guest Rooms

San Pedro de Quemez – The Burnt City, Galaxy Cave & Devil’s Cave

In 1879 the Chilean army invaded the territories of Bolivia of what now is known as the Municipality of San Pedro de Quemez. The old town was completely burned and so the survivors of this tragedy moved to another place.

Devil’s Cave is a pre-Incan cemetery from about 500-800AD. A narrow entrance leads into the cave with the graves, which were either dug into the bedrock or else built up from coral. Each grave had a small square entrance and could contain several bodies. The bodies were buried in the fetal position wrapped in a blanket with jewelery. The remains of skeletons or mummified bodies can still be seen in some of the graves.

Boutique 3* Tayka San Pedro de Quemez Hotel

At the southwestern tip of the salar, off the beaten track, is Hotel Tayka de Piedra. Built of rugged local stone, it lies near the village of San Pedro de Quemez, by the burned-down ruins of a pre-Columbian settlement.

This simple 15 room lodge situated on the southern border of the Uyuni Salt Flats on the outskirts of the small ancient town of San Pedro de Quemez, is made from volcanic rock.

All Rooms Include:

  • Hot showers
  • Radiators
  • Additional heating
  • Feather duvets

Ojo de Perdiz Hotel Salt Flat Guest Rooms

Hotel Tayka Ojo De Perdiz

To walk outside in an early dawn or to look up into a night sky filled with such a breathtaking array of stars will leave you struck silent in wonder.

The small hotel may just be the most remote accommodation on the continent and there is nothing anywhere within a vast distance of this place.

Built as a community project by four local families, with a capacity for 47 guests in basic but comfortable rooms, the simple hotel is very much in tune with its environment, blending into a stunning landscape – the impressive Siloli Desert expanse with its towering mountains in the background.

The setting for this hotel is probably the most dramatic in Bolivia and it is really this location, amid the high Andean desert landscape, rather than the property itself that is so inspiring.
