La Retama

San Juan de Dios, Cusco, Peru

1 review

While La Retama is a bit on the touristy end of the spectrum, I can't think of a better place in Cusco to sample traditional, Andean cuisine. Set right on the Plaza de Armas, the restaurant features everything from cuy to alpaca, along with the many soups, meat and potato dishes the Andes are known for. Definitely not my favorite ...

    The Plaza de Armas is the main square of Cusco and it's where you'll find a great amount of restaurants, shops, money exchange booths, hostels, bars, pubs, drugstores and souvenir shops. It's also where the Cusco Cathedral is located and most likely a mandatory spot to visit at night, since all main roads start from there. The square is beautifully ...

    Wonderful Coca shop! You are greeted with a cup of coca shell tea and given an introduction to the layout of the shop. Information on the history, displays on the production and hands on demonstrations. Be sure to time your visit for one of these at 10, 12, and 2pm. (Double check times before your visit) The prices in the ...

    It was wonderful to see ancient Inca artifacts but the museum lacked some important things for tourists. At first the descriptions were written in Spanish and then in English, but as we walked through the museum we saw less and less written descriptions next to the artifacts and even less translated into English. Most people visiting the museum did speak ...

    We hiked the Inca Trail with Llama Path in 2007, and were floored by their service. The porters carried the tents and food for us, set up camp way before we arrive, and the chef made us multi-couse meals everyday. We even got a cake to celebrate the new year! This was the Comfort Service, and I heard that they ...

    If I could give SAS Travel more than 5 stars, I would. I was incredibly impressed with the quality of service and facilities with SAS travel. I used them for the Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu and for a day tour and both were done so well. I was extremely pleased with my experience and time traveling with them. For ...

    Calle Procuradores is what it feels like to travel to exotic places. It's nothing more than narrow, restaurant-lined alley shooting off of the Plaza de Armas, but it has an air of mystery and a calming, underworld allure. Procuradores has a mixed reputation due to the presence of drug dealers, peddling pot to tourists, but it also is home to ...

    La Chupiteria is the place to go in Cusco for a drink. This tiny bar packs a punch with shots the house speciality. The owner is a colourful character who will be sure to regale you with the odd story or two!

    This place must have the highest density of disco balls and angel paraphernalia on the planet. Absolutely kitsch but a fun place to sit and enjoy a few drinks while marvelling at the decor. Technically a bar and restaurant but I'm not sure I'd trust them to deliver great food. Well worth a visit. Prices are on the high end ...

    Nice colonial convent. Check out the tombs of 2 of the most important conquistadors Diego de Almagro (rival of Pizarro and "discoverer" of Chile) and Francisco Pizarro's younger brother Gonazalo.

    Get a balcony seat and see Plaza de Armas at sunset while enjoying a cappuccino or latte. The alfajores are such a nice early evening treat.

    Most people visit Ollantaytambo for a few hours as part of a day tour of the Sacred Valley. I'm guilty of the same, but I wish we'd spent a night or two here rather than in Cusco. It's a beautiful Incan town with some really interesting ruins. Besides that, there are some really cute places to stay and some nice ...

    Consider it a trial run if you are acclimating before the Inca Trail. These are impressive remnants of what it thought to be a fortress, though the site hints that it was used for more than just protection. The walls are made of giant boulders that perfectly fit without anything else like mortar. Cusco is said the be shaped like ...

    The Cusco Cathedral is very impressive. It took 109 years to be built and it was built on top of Inca Wiracocha's palace. It has three main rooms, two side rooms adorned with pure gold altars and the main one with a breathtaking silver altar. The cathedral is very ostentatious, because the Spanish thought that decorating it with gold and ...
