  • MANDANGO

    Throughout the Vilcabamba valley, you can't help but notice the uniquely-shaped peak - the Mandango peak ("Sleeping God" or "Sleeping Inca").From certain angles, the top of Mandango looks like a face looking upwards to the sky, or presumably 'heaven'. From other areas, it is said to look like a sleeping man or woman, presumably an Inca.You can...

  • VALLEY OF LONGEVITY

    The Valley of Vilcabamba has a reputation for being the Valley of Longevity.Somehow, from the geography to the climate to the soil to the mineral contents of the water to whatever you can dream of, the residents of this village apparently grow to a very old age. But mind you, not that they grow old and frail, I read that some of the bones of these...

    Charlito's is run by an American expat, his local Vilcabambina wife and their family. It's a new place, with simple and basic decor. Food is simply tasty. Atmosphere is laid back, with a nice international music mix at moderate volume.Charlito's menu is short and sweet. I am definitely a fan of shorter menus, as they indicate more focus on house...

    The route is interesting if you want to see Chachapoyas and continue your tour further north to Ecuador.The tour can be done in 2 days, with a stop in San Ignacio.

    If you time it correctly, you can go from Vilcabamba to Chachapoyas in as little as two days of NON-CONTINOUS travel. I assume you can take the same route either direction. For purpose of this tip, I will give you the information from the direction I traveled: Vilcabamba to Chachapoyas. Now, it's been a while so excuse the lack of town names in...

    LADIES BE WARNED: During Carnaval festival I stayed at the Ruinas de Quinara hosteria, where I was targeted as sexual prey by the NEW owner's son.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Vilcabamba is known as an excellent place to chill out and spend a few days relaxing. However, for those with a bit more energy, there are several companies that offer horseriding tours of the region. This range from simple day tours to multi-day trek. The rentals are not that bad so shop around.

    Me Parece mal que las personas se aprovechen de las cosas para dañar otros yo me hospede en la ruinas de quinara en noviembre del 2011 donde hubo un cambio de propietario y pude estar en el fetival de carnaval que para ecuador fue el 22 de febrero del 2012 y me parecio muy bien ya que tienen una administradora muy gentil es una persona muy respetada en este lugar igual su nuevo dueño es un empresario un señor que no tiene hijos mayores de edad por lo que las personas no deberian ser asi querer embarrar a otros por un problema de un dueño anterior espero queridos amigos de Vilcabamba y de la Hosteria esten bien los llevo siempre en el corazon. Ya amo Vilcabamba.
