What to do in Cusco as a couple?

In February, many couples plan to travel to different destinations in Peru in order to escape from their daily routine. The city of Cusco is full of history but also offers some activities to enjoy a romantic and unforgettable time this Valentine’s Day. In the following blog, we recommend you some of this activities:

Picnic at Huaypo Lake

Huaypo lake is located approximately 45 minutes from our Tierra Viva Sacred Valley hotel. Here you can not only admire the amazing view of the surrounding mountains, such as Salkantay, but also be amazed by its diverse flora and fauna. Undoubtedly, this is the perfect place to enjoy a picnic and spend some time with your partner. You can also do some other activities such as kayak, or stand-up paddle.

Horseback riding in the Sacred Valley

Explore the Sacred Valley in a different way, in a horseback riding tour. The adventure starts at our Tierra Viva Cusco hotel, where you will be picked-up and transfer to the community of Paucarbamba. On the way we will cross the Urubamba river, where we will be able to see snow mountains and landscapes that will take your breath away. From this point, you will be able to reach different archeological sites such as Maras salt ponds or Moray, making several stops to enjoy the romantic views of the surroundings.

Hot Spring in Machu Picchu

Another activity that you can do, as a couple, is enjoying a relaxing time in Machu Picchu hot springs, outdoor pools from 38 to 46 C (100 to 115 F), surrounded by nature. This will be definitely a wonderful and unforgettable experience.

After this romantic day, enjoy our facilities at Tierra Viva Machu Picchu, and recharge your energies to continue with your couple’s vacation.
