Sicuani Favorites

    Favorite thing: It's been some years, but I spent a night in an eco-lodge just outside of Sicuani that was built and run by a small indigenous community. You might want to hire a car to get there. Accommodations were spare but brand new at the time. Sicuani itself has a bank, internet, a few small stores, and, from what I see on this site, a hostal.

    Favorite thing: there is much to see from the train...
    in cusco take a seat near a window on the LEFT side....the most spectacular one!

    Fondest memory: each stop is a real indian market.....no problem at all finding something to eat .
