Save yourself a rip off and don’t go there. We asked for a place to put our tent and were first charged 30 soles. Whereas you can find rooms with double bed for that price in this area. Being “gringo” or white really makes some Peruvians think that they can ask whatever they want from you. The spot that was presented to is wasn’t even flat surfaced and there was dog poo. We managed to lower the price to 20 soles but when we then asked for the WiFi code, we were refused it. We had to pay extra to use the internet... hearing this we left.
I cannot recommend this place highly enough. There are many reasons: - incredible scenery - few tourists -certain view of condors -good food -amazingly nice staff: when it is cold every guests is given a hot water bottle, camping or hotel guest -nice walks -reasonable prices I stayed much longer than planned
I have travelled in South America for more than two years. This is one of my favourite places: stunning scenery , you see condors from the restaurant, simple but clean and affordable rooms, fresh and carefully prepared food and very friendly and helpful staff. They light a fire in the open fire place, give you a warm blanket and a hot water bottle at night.
Beautiful hotel with 5 star Friendly service. Must use the Free Hot Springs in the hotel. Rooms are spacious and very neat and clean. They even have a spa on the property - Prices comparable to US prices.
I stayed at the Granja del Colca in February. I was travelling with my tent and the friendly people offered me to camp next to the fields. The Granja is a beautiful place with an incredible view over the colca canyon and a good spot to observe condors. The restaurant is very good, you can also try typical peruvian food. It is the perfect place for visiting the colca canyon beside the mainstream tourist routes. The staff members, Raquel and Efrain, that I met were incredibly friendly people. We had a coffee together and they could help me a lot giving me advice how to explore the area. Overall I highly recommend this place for everyone who wants to explore the colca canyon and have a cosy accommodation or for campers that travel with their own tents and are searching for a safe and beautiful place to stay.…
