  • The Tatacoa desert is a majestic desert, I hired the plan in a travel agency, I was 1 night and was great to see the show that has this desert, sunset and starry night. It makes a little heat but worth knowing.

  • Very beautiful place and with breathtaking landscapes. There are several ways to know: walking, motocarro, tours or private car. It is interesting to go with a guide but not essential. Strongly recommend the swimming to the end of the tour and the lookout El atardecer Cuzco.
