After returning to the Luxury Starwood Resort in Urubamba (link here http://www.tambodelinkaresortview.com/) for the Inca Trail hikers to bathe and sleep in a real bed, we had another day of adventure the next day.
My husband does all of our trip planning – and does a fantastic job. This day’s adventure was mountain hiking, zip lining, and repelling. Here is the link to the tour that we took.
We enjoyed the adventure, and I would recommend this tour group….however you really need to be in shape and not afraid of heights to do this trip!
After our adventure, the tour operator drove us to Cusco where we would be spending the night before beginning our journey home.
The hotel was beautiful, new (built inside an old building), and of course a Starwood resort (Thank you Starwood Amex for the Points!) Here is the link: http://www.palaciodelinkahotel.com/
In the evening, we sampled Pisco Sours at the bar — delicious, but dangerous!
Our last morning in Peru, we did some sight seeing in Cusco. We are NOT SHOPPERS…but spent the entire morning shopping! I have read reviews that say the shopping in Cusco is too touristy, but we really enjoyed ourselves.
There are so many hand made, high quality items available at fairly reasonable prices…from hand knit items to colorful hand woven textiles to unique sterling silver jewelry. We indulged.
And then we were done. Headed for a flight from Cusco to Lima. Then Lima back home to Atlanta. A really great trip, and truly a trip of a lifetime!
