    Awesome place with a very peculiar culture of the people who work there are generations modeling the stones for the construction of Arequipa. Ride two or 3 hours at most, counting the transfers from Arequipa.

    It is not necessary to contrartar an agency. In the kilometer 9 of the highway Yura begins the journey through the path of Sillar, if you go to shingles, a taxi will come well after leaving Anashuayco, that Yes, plenty of water. Ultimately a compulsory to visit Arequipa in place.

Where to stay in Arequipa

The historical center offers the best selection of options, with plenty of budget hostels and mid-range hotels scattered throughout its streets. For something quieter, look north to the neighborhoods of Zemanat and San Jacinto. If you're looking for a suburban experience, stay in the western neighborhood of Yanahuara.
