Chavín de Huántar

This small, unassuming village thrives on tourists coming to visit the ruins of the same name that are found at one end of town. Few stay overnight—most come here for the day from Huaraz—although those who do will find a few small shops, restaurants, and basic hostels near the Plaza de Armas.
