Chachapoyas

(4/5 based on 1,300+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: 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.

Where to stay

Visitors to Chachapoyas can take advantage of a number of hotels spread across town, including many options clustered near the main city square. Most hostels cater to backpackers who need few amenities, but if you want something more comfortable and better equipped, consider a guesthouse a short drive outside the city. Most family-run establishments in the surrounding villages offer guided treks to nearby waterfalls and ruins, with collected profits used to improve local infrastructure.
