RELAX IN PEACEFUL OLLANTAYTAMBO

After a few weeks of Spanish course in Cusco, some of our students are looking for a nice and quit weekend get-away. If you are looking for some ‘tranquilidad’ and you like to visit a typical Peruvian village at the countryside, away from the daily hassle and partying in Cusco, I recommend the small town of Ollantaytambo. This is a perfect escape from the city of Cusco. From the bus station in Calle Pavitos in Cusco it takes only 1,5 up till 2 hours by bus to get to Ollantaytambo, located at 80 km northwest of Cusco in the Sacred Valley of the Incas; the price of a one way bus ticket is approximately 10 soles. The bus ride will give you an amazing view of the countryside in Cusco, immediately after leaving the city. Passing by the countryside, you will see people with traditional clothes and cattle grazing on the side of the road, close to their small, traditional houses. At the background, the top of the mountains covered with snow. Once arriving in Ollantaytambo, all you’ll see are mountains, the typical inca walls, few people and some kids playing on the streets. You’ll hear the sound of a rippling stream, breath in fresh air and enjoy the warmer weather. As Ollantaytambo is located at 2700 above sea level, it is definitely a bit warmer than Cusco (3400 mtrs above sea level), which is a nice change. You will notice the difference, especially during the nights.
