Guests may stroll up to the Parque Kennedy, the social heart of Miraflores, with its lively cafe and restaurant scene and shopping opportunities.

Maison D'Elise The Maison d'Elise Hotel is an attractive mix of colonial and Mediterranean style architecture. All the rooms have private bathrooms, telephone, cable TV and fridge as well as a private terrace. There's a nice lawn with a small pool, and also good views of Misti Volcano. Hotel Taypikala Lago

This lakeside hotel is located in a small picturesque village called Chucuito about 20 minutes from Puno. Enjoy fabulous views over Lake Titicaca while enjoying dinner in their excellent restaurant.

Taquile Island Homestay

Taquile Island families began offering homestays in the early 1980's.  Participating families added a dedicated bedroom to their adobe and stone house compounds.  These simple rooms include two beds with mattresses made of totora reed harvested from the lake;  woolen blankets, and homespun cotton sheets.  Dinner and breakfast may be provided by the family, or visitors may eat in the village.   Water is provided in ceramic jugs drawn from a well.  Visitors use outhouses located adjacent to the house compound.   The views to the star-filled sky at night, and to the 20,000-foot peaks of the Royal Range add to the experience of peace and tranquility.

Hotel Royal Inn

The hotel's location on a quiet street just half a block from the Plaza de Armas puts you in the heart of Puno.  Rooms in this 4-star hotel are comfortably appointed. One of the most appreciated features in this town at 12,500 feet above sea level, where nights are cold, is the radiant floor heating.  Guests enjoy excellent service from receptive staff.

Hotel Taypikala Cuzco

Hotel Taypikala's location on a quiet cul de sac behind the famous convent of the Qorikancha affords guests a welcome respite from Cuzco's noisy streets.  Yet you're just three blocks from the Plaza de Armas, an easy stroll to all the popular tourist services. The colonial style of the hotel and the Andean style interior decor create an atmosphere that invites you to relax. The patio is the ideal place for sunbathing or on mild summer nights to enjoy a glass of wine or a steaming cup of coffee in the romantic glow of torches.

Sacred Valley Lodge

This 16-room country inn in the traditional community of Yanahuara is perfectly scaled to the landscape and its environment.  It's an excellent choice for families and small groups who want to be in touch with authentic Peruvian countryside.  Far enough from the busy main highway to be quiet, it's only 15 minutes to the Ollantaytambo train station for your Machu Picchu train. Guest rooms are spacious with views over the beautiful countryside.

Hostal Presidente

This cozy mid-range hotel looks out directly onto the Vilcanota River, and is just a block from the central plaza in Aguas Calientes.  All rooms have private baths with 24-hour hot water.
