Tierra Viva Cusco San Blas Hotel is located in the heart of San Blas, Cusco´s most artistic neighborhood, also called the “Artisan´s Neighborhood”. We remodeled an old colonial residence, which was constructed in adobe, carefully preserving the most traditional aspects of its architecture. The residence has 24 spacious rooms, an inner courtyard, characteristic of Cusco´s colonial houses and a marvelous garden.
Next to the hotel´s entrance you will find the dining room where the buffet breakfast is served and a cozy hall where you will be able to check in. The rooms are located around the indoor patios, with large windows that let in the amazing colors of the Peruvian highlands. Tierra Viva Cusco San Blas Hotel is decorated with colonial paintings, designs made by local Cusco craftsmen and is surrounded by the plants, flowers and trees of the Andes.
Tierra Viva Cusco San Blas Hotel is located a few meters from one of the most emblematic places of the city of Cusco, the Plaza de San Blas and is just 4 blocks from the Plaza de Armas. In spite of its central location, the hotel is situated just far enough from the noise and the hustle to let you enjoy the peace and quiet that every traveler needs, in the most bohemian neighborhood of Cusco.Check in: 12:00 Check out: 9:00 Breakfast: 5:00-10:00

Cusco is Qosqo, the bellybutton of the world for the Inca Empire. It preserves great cultural and architectonic treasures, including a rich fusion between local tradition and Spanish culture, with its highest expression being the Andean Baroque style. From this center all roads or suyosare born, which are directed towards the cardinal points and connect us with the local nature, culture and art.
Close to Cusco is the Sacred Valley, one of the most beautiful places in Peru, cut across by the Urubamba River. The Valley was the Inca´s pantry, where they got their food, and the place where they did agricultural experiments, as is evidenced in the circular platforms orandenes of Moray. In the Valley we find rich traditions of markets, weavers (the communities of Chahuaytire and Huilloc stand out), feasts and many of Cusco´s most important archeological sites, such as Pisaq, Ollantaytambo and Chinchero. In Ollantaytambo we also find one of the train stations that take us to the greatest Inca treasure, Machu Picchu and its magic forest of clouds.
Another important valley is located southwest from Cusco, on the direction towards Puno. The first 45 kilometers from Cusco run across a group of localities with very marked differences in personalities and characteristic charms. A little after leaving the city, after crossing the Huatanay River, we arrive to Saylla, the capital of the pork chicharron, and Huasao, a well-known town of witches and healers. The diversity of experiences continues with the Tipon archeological site, the Oropesa locality (where most of the bread consumed in the region is produced) and, maybe the most relevant part of the journey, the “Baroque Route”, formed by the beautiful Jesuit churches of Andahuaylillas, Huaro and Canincunca.
Anywhere you go you will find great cultural and historic richness. Sometimes they may be found in lesser-known places that are of great beauty and interest, such as Quillarumiyoc, or the temple dedicated to the moon located near Anchuasi, in the interoceanic road that takes us to Abancay and the coast. To reach this place it is necessary to cross the great Pampas de Anta, home to the largest andenes in Peru, Zurite.
In all of these places, the tourist operators with which we work offer experiences related to nature, adventure, popular art, gastronomy and feasts. You can find information about these places, experiences and much more on the destination blog on our web site. This way, you will be able to discover Cusco in all of its depth, the great archeological capital of America, named by the UNESCO as a World Heritage.
