to visit this old plantation, is history being relived....although the main buildings are now exclusive hotel property, the owners obviously think that its past history in the slave trade is worth letting people be aware of. the tunnels under the building and heading toward the...More
A few kilometers away from the uninteresting town of Chincha, this boutique hotel lets you feel how things were a few centuries ago, in colonial times. Restauration works have not damaged the original atmosphere, which is really worth trying. A guided tour of the property...More
I came here to go to the slave tunnels. I was apart of a tour. I would NEVER stay here for the hotel, but the slave tunnels were excellent. It was very emotional, educational, and thought provoking. Do yourself a favor, go an educate yourself....More
I wish I could afford to stay at this hotel as it is very beautiful. I also wish I would have skipped paying for the tour and used it to eat at the restaurant. You can still walk around the estate’s chapel and part of...More
While the upstairs is beautiful, evoking the elegance of years past, the slave tunnels below reveal the horror that was at the foundation of the hacienda in its heyday. Fascinating and haunting... definitely worth a stop if in the area.

The cheap way is to take a Soyuz or Peru Bus (same company) to Chincha. They leave every 15 minutes from Lima and should be between 15 and 10 soles. You can catch them at their terminal in La Victoria or at an informal bus stop on the Panamericana Sur beneath Puente Atocongo. There might be more informal bus stops between this stop and their main stop at their terminal. Both these places aren’t in very safe areas, so just be aware of your surroundings and take the necessary precautions. The bus will take you to Chincha Alta and might make an informal stop in El Carmen, so ask. If you get off at Chincha Alta take a moto taxi or colectivo (shared taxi) to the mercado ask to: dónde salen las combis a El Carmen (this should cost between 4 and 6 soles). Once at the mercado look for the combis (minibuses) with an El Carmen sign. They will leave when they are full of passengers so just be patient if you are the first ones on. Tell the driver you are going to Casa Hacienda San José and they will take you up to the main entrance (the trip should be about 5 soles). If you get off at El Carmen from the Lima Bus, wait until a combi passes by and ask if they go to Casa Hacienda San José (you might have to take it on the opposite side of the road).
