An educational and fun adventure for all ages.

Popular with those heading to the ancient citadel of Machu Picchu, Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel is an intimate Andean village with terraced hills, waterfalls, stone pathways and 83 whitewashed adobe casitas tucked away in the cloud forest.

Member of National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World, the property has 12 acres of exquisite natural beauty, where 214 bird species – such as the golden-headed quetzal and the iconic Andean cock-of-the-rock – and the world’s largest native orchid collection (372 species) have been registered.

After exploring the Historic Sanctuary and in-house excursions, guests can enjoy the Unu Spa, which combines the classic nurturing with a mystical Andean approach. Natural products are derived from local botanical extracts (mint, eucalyptus and orchids), thus providing a pleasing spiritual, sensual and soothing experience.

The first-class restaurant features stunning views of Vilcanota River, and shares the secrets of Peruvian cuisine with a contemporary twist.

    The Inkaterra Association (ITA) and the Protected Natural Areas National Service (SERNANP) manage the Inkaterra Machu Picchu Spectacled Bear Project, an effort designed to recover bears that have been negatively affected by human impact, and reintroduce them into their natural habitat.

    Once common throughout the Andes, the spectacled bear is now critically endangered. Visits to the project are organized with advanced coordination to gain insight into the world of these large mammals (the only bear species in South America), and learn about the challenges they face to survive in today’s world. Donations to the project are welcome and will be duly acknowledged and certified.

    Weather and what to wear

    Machu Picchu has a subtropical highland climate-warm and humid during the day and cold at night-with temperatures varying between 8°C (46° F) and 22°C (72° F). Humidity ranges between 77% and 91% and annual rainfall is 400-1000 mm (16-39 inches). Dry season is from May to October and the orchid season runs from November to April. The Citadel is surrounded by the Andean Cloud Forest, a wet, tropical forest characterized by a presence of some clouds even in the dry season. It is recommended to wear light cotton clothes during the day, but bring a wet weather coat and warm clothes for the nights. The outdoor Andean sun is strong and sun blocks are strongly recommended as well as mosquito repellants for outings at night.

    We recommend that you bring:

    • Comfortable clothes for walking, a light jacket and rain gear
    • Walking or trekking shoes
    • Binoculars
    • Sunblock, sunhat, sunglasses, mosquito repellent and lip balm
    • Electricity voltage is 220v - some converters are available at the hotel but it would we suggest to bring your own converter
    • Contact lenses solution and an extra set of contact lenses (if required)
    • Extra batteries or chargers for your camera & video equipment**. Thank you for considering that Peru does not have a battery recycling project. Please take your used batteries with you, or leave them at the Ecocenter.

      Amazing Amazing Amazing. Great guides, loads of excursions, 3course meal of excellent food twice a day plus afternoon tea (if you arent out exploring) feed walnuts to the wild agouti running round. Wake up to birds. Running hot water and electricity (before 11pm). Even if we left for 10min, when we returned the room was tidy and made up. Best hotel I have ever stayed. If we didnt have other countries to visit first we would return here without hesitation.

      We found every aspect of Inkaterra to be thoughtful, informative with a quality touch. Our guide was knowledgeable and the excursions all were well run with an emphasis on ensuring we saw and heard aspects of the jungle. All excursions are voluntary and well run. There were only a couple at extra cost but over three days we did the excursions included and there was good variety. The thatched hut was very comfortable and in keeping with sustainability. The food was very good and staff were all friendly and helpful. We could not fault any adpect of Inkaterra and it is very good value for money.
