This area provides a quiet and attractive alternative to Huaraz, although for some it can feel isolating: there’s no town center, just hotels and restaurants spread about. There are local hot springs, and a nice hiking trail just behind Hotel Monterrey leads across a stream and up into the hills, eventually taking you to the Wilcahuaín Ruins. And you're just a 15-minute drive from Huaraz.
