A 4-hour drive from Lima takes you to this beyond beautiful paradise. It's better to camp and enjoy nature than to stay at a hostel, which are not really comfortable.

Not very touristic and it is one bumpy ride to get there from Huancayo :) But totally worth it. The lagoons are breath taking, super clear and clean,although cold!

The Yauyos National Reserve is a really beautiful area of Peru. The main city is Huancaya, about 7 hours from Lima, and 4-5 from Lunahuana. I recommend this trip, but you need at least 3 days given all the driving, and I think a 4...More

It was a bit difficult to get to Huancaya (car from Huancayo leaves only at 4.45 am from parque de los sombreros),but totally worth it! There are waterfalls everywhere just as well as beautiful lagoons. There are (cheap) hospedajes in Huancaya and you can take...More

I've read it was the best landscape in Lima province, so we went there camping last weekend: it was amazing! It was extremly cold at night but if you have the appropiate gear or you stay in a house, it'll not be a problem.

The place is really beautiful, but it is very far from any civilized place, and it is difficult to find a decent accommodation. If you like adventure tourism , don`t miss "Huancaya" it is one of best attractions of the Andes in Lima region. And...More

A great place to enjoy the cordillera near Lima, a 6 hours drive from San Isidro, the road along the cordillera after you leave Lunahuana is thrilling and awesome. You will get the chance to see Cañete, Lunahuana, and several little villages along the road...More

Like most of Peru the landscape is grand but the infrastructure dire. Nor Yauyos is a stone's throw away from Lima but you might have to drive back to Lunahuana to get a decent bed for the night. It is a shame, really. Don't stay...More

Hi, it is not necessary a 4 wheel drive to get to Yauyos, I went in a Chevrolet AVEO, but you need to be careful with the road, because has much bends
