Chachapoyas

Historic Sites Nature Sightseeing
A good base for exploring the surrounding cloud forests, Chachapoyas remains a small and laid-back town despite its growing popularity with international tourists. In an area inhabited by native tribes for many centuries, the town was founded early in the Spanish conquest of South America and quickly became a major hub for European exploitation of the Amazonian forests. Today most Chachapoyas vacations involve tours of the surrounding ancient ruins, which represent important reminders of the role that the Chachapoya--People of the Clouds--once played in this part of the world. Visitors with a keener interest in natural attractions can spend a good part of their Chachapoyas holiday exploring the region's many waterfalls. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Chachapoyas trip itinerary using our Peru family vacation planner.
