11 Must-Visit Sites & Things to Do in the Sacred Valley

Just an hour’s drive from Cusco, the Sacred Valley of the Incas in Peru is named after its importance to the Inca, whose ruined citadels and former agricultural terraces are dotted along the valley’s course.

It’s an awe-inspiring place to visit, flanked by serrated mountains and lush with corn that grows beside the Río Urubamba that flows right along the valley floor. For any visitor to Cusco, the Sacred Valley of the Incas is an unmissable spot on your trip to Peru.

Avoid just passing through on the way to the epic Inca fortress of Machu Picchu and instead spend a few days exploring one of Peru’s largest and most dynamic artisan markets (more…)

Settled just off the road that wanders between Urubamba and Ollantaytambo, AMAUTA’s campus or Spanish School  in the Sacred Valley, allows students to spend a week away from the hustle and cool temperatures of Cusco. The climate in the Sacred Valley is generally quite temperate, there are several famous and gorgeous tourist sites quite close, and students get to spend a week getting to know the area, their professors and each other, and practicing Spanish in every-day activities.

A typical group from AMAUTA Spanish School includes students from the US, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, and Canada.. many times there are students as well from Turkey, from France, or Belgium, Japan or Brazil… (more…)

A visit to Moray and the Maras Salt Mines

-a student review-

When you follow a Spanish language course at AMAUTA Spanish School in Cusco, you have the opportunity to follow part of your Spanish lessons in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

You can even go to the Amazone and continue your Spanish course in the Rainforest.

That sounded very appealing to me so I signed up for one week of Spanish classes at the Sacred Valley campus. During this week we visited Moray (Inca ruins) and the Maras Salt Mines with AMAUTA staff as part of our program, that consists of Spanish classes, accommodation with all meals, activities and tours.
