Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel – Machu Picchu Pueblo, Peru
Picture this: you travel by train into the green folds of the Peruvian Andes and arrive at what seems like a charming Andean village hidden in the mists of the cloud forest. Just outside your whitewashed adobe casita, there are 372 native orchid species, more than 200 kinds of birds, and 111 species of butterfly to be found among the trees. Several miles of trails loop through the forest from your doorstep, and natural hot springs and ancient Inca petroglyphs are within a short walk. To top it all off, the greatest archaeological site in South America is perched among the peaks just above, and expert guides are eager to explore it with you.
Welcome to Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel, the brainchild of an ecotourism company that has been blazing the trail for sustainable tourism for nearly 40 years. With 85 beautifully appointed casitas discreetly tucked among the trees, a glass-walled restaurant, and a wide range of excursions led by exceptional guides, the lodge is much more than a base for visiting the Machu Picchu Historical Sanctuary—it is a destination in itself.
