Where to stay in Cachi

Across the small urban area of Cachi, you'll find well-appointed accommodations set in atmospheric colonial-era buildings. Mainly offering little but the room itself, these small hotels and guesthouses have more than enough charm and welcoming spirit to make you forget about the lack of amenities. Campgrounds just outside of the main village present a particularly enticing option for visitors wanting to get straight out into the landscape and spend a night under the stars.

  • This very well organized, there is a room which is sorted chronologically and exhibits the history of the place, with tips of arrows and urns, vases, even if it is brief travel is very interesting. It is worth visiting it.
