TESTIMONIALS

ENGIN E.
We stayed 4 night in Eco Quechua Lodge and I never forget these wonderful days. The owner also perfect hiking guide and amazing cook. He cooked for us very delicious meals and prepare lunch box for hiking. He has a wonderful family. I'm highly recommend this place to everyone. It's changing all your trips and experiences.
MELISSA D.
My husband and I stayed there for two nights this August and wow! What an amazing experience. It was far from the hustle and bustle of touristy places, the staff was over the top nice, and ultimately just a very peaceful and chill stay. The owner was so accommodating and fun to talk with about tours, history, and life in Peru. They offer filtered water (which is hard to come by at any hostel or lodge) transportation and tour options plus the food was incredible! It was a unique experience for a great price too! Get there ;) And if you miss the train, do the 8 mile walk to "hidroelectrica", see how the real Peruvian's commute, it will make you think twice about driving your car for just a few measly miles.
MICHAEL
