    Importante : No tenemos disponibilidad en los siguientes meses.

    I am Chaska, weaver, heir to the textile tradition of the Inca people. My family has been the founder of Chinchero and as such, we preserve the values and practices of a living culture that speaks of an ancestral Peru. My husband is a teacher, originally from Arequipa and we are both very happy to be able to receive travelers and have a cultural exchange with people from all over the world. Our house is humble but we welcome you with all the love. Currently we need help with specific projects to improve our garden, some carpentry projects, and general home repairs.

    In the house, smoking, alcohol and drugs are not allowed.
