Arequipa & Colca Canyon
Arequipa, being Peru’s second city and an interesting destination enjoys a nice hotel offer catering for all budgets. There are not too many luxury properties in town but nice, good quality colonial hotels with beautiful common areas in the typical Arequipa architecture are plentiful. Arequipa, being one of the sunniest cities in Peru invites to spend the day outdoors so if the hotel has a nice garden or rooftop terrace is always an interesting feature. Central locations in order to enjoy the colonial center of the “White City” and visit some of its fine restaurants is also important. The Colca Canyon has a great hotel offer and most of these are built in local materials making them blend into the local countryside without effort. Most standard hotels are located in the town of Chivay, the largest around the canyon and several higher end properties can be found in the surrounding villages or even in the middle of the countryside. For the Colca Canyon we feel that besides the normal qualities one looks for in a hotel, the hotel should have nice gardens from where one can enjoy the star of the show; the views. Due to limited restaurants in the canyon, good food is also important as it heating with the night temperatures often flirting with the freezing point.
