Coffee experience

The jungle town of Quillabamba is situated in high subtropical forest, around 200 kilometers from Cusco and less than 50 kilometers from Machu Picchu. The capital of its jungle-covered province, Quillabamba is a center for the growing of coffee, cacao, tea and coca leaves.

An early start from Cusco is needed for the fascinating 4-hour drive to Quillabamba through an ever-changing landscape, passing through the Sacred Valley of the Incas and the Inca archaeological site at the quiet village of Ollantaytambo. At the Maranura Hacienda, visitors can pick their own coffee, cacao or coca leaves, and savor those same local products in hot drinks served to accompany the local produce prepared at mealtime, as well as some of the more than twenty varieties of tropical fruits grown in the area.

The hacienda has ten rooms for guests, as well as a swimming pool. This is the perfect place to relax in between visiting Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. Visit waterfalls surrounded by lush sub-tropical vegetation Situated just a 30-minute drive and a delightful 20-minute walk from the subtropical jungle town of Quillabamba, the twin Yunay Mandor waterfalls are a wonderful place to relax, enjoy a picnic, and swim in the cool waters that flow through this lush forest. And from these two waterfalls, it is a short drive to the thermal baths at Cocalmayo, and the railroad line to Aguas Calientes, where train passengers disembark on their way to visit the famous Inca ruins of Machu Picchu.
