We loved Awana Kancha, one of our first stops in the area upon arrival. Kids and adults loved feeding the llamas, alpacas and vicunas (but, be careful of occasional spitting by naughty animals! Daughter got spit in her eye - yuck!) We really enjoyed taking...More

I loved coming here. I’m a sucker for alpacas and just had to go somewhere where I could pet and feed one and take a million pics.

Interested in textiles? Interested in Peruvian culture? Like animals? This wonderful place is a very hands-on and engaging - textures, colors, demonstrations, interactions with the animals. (I tried feeding them - how fun!)

Lovely little farm where you can get up close to & feed the Alpaca and Llama and purchase high quality items. The people are not pushy, very friendly. There are demonstrations of handy crafts that are for sale. We fed the animals and purchased beautiful...More

We made a quick stop here on our way to the Sacred Valley. The Alpacas were sooooo cute! Stinky, but cute. We got to feed them which was fun. While not the most impressive as far a scenery, it was just too fun to not...More

When I first saw this on our itinerary I was worried that it was going to be a tourist trap. Instead I found a great educational experience about the weaving that is such a large part of the culture. The llamas, alpacas, vicuñas were irresistible....More

I think it is a bit touristy, but it was fun to see the animals close up. The weaving part was good, and there was no pressure to buy anything. We didn't actually go to the store. And there were good pictures to be had... More
