We had an amazing stay at Yellow River. Tatiana was a perfect host, cooking up delicious meals, sharing knowledge and stories of the region and showing us how chocolate is made.
Only after going to stay in this small relaxing, quiet Homestay, we can understand the amazing reviews. :)
This homestay is 110% recommended! Make some time before/after Machu Picchu and come to this little piece of heaven.
Also recommended is the half-day trip to the Hot Springs in Santa Teresa! Amazing hike with a reward!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ours is a different spot. Our family home and farm offers unique homestay experiences in the Peruvian Cloud forest near Machu Picchu. We have a number of beds and are set in Peru's beautiful cloud forest. The main house is also home to the family and we serve home-cooked peruvian and international food. We grow our own organic coffee and a wide range of tropical fruit. The buildings are surrounded by lush tropical vegetation and we have two rivers nearby. The location is perfect for travellers on their way to Machu Picchu who want to see a little bit more of the real Peru. Many of our packages include dinner and breakfast and we offer optional coffee and cocoa-roasting workshops as well as tours of our farm and local walks. We are in a gorgeous yet isolated spot. Our guests are those who appreciate something a little different and who understand the importance of stepping off the beaten path. We don't do en-suite, but we do offer an experience you'll not easily forget. ... more less
