Fodor's Expert Review La Casona de Yucay
Av. San Martín 104, Plaza Manco II, Yucay, Cusco, Peru
This 1810 home of Manuel de Orihuela, once host to South American liberator Simón Bolívar, features bright, airy, and comfortable rooms arranged in blocks around four courtyards, lush with flowered gardens, all of which received an upgrade in 2017. The lovely views of the surrounding landscape, visible from panoramic windows, provide a peaceful getaway, while the location just 10 minutes away from the larger town of Urubamba makes it a central base for exploring the Sacred Valley. You can even stay in Bolívar's room!
