Visit the small Museo De La Coca to learn about the role coca plays in Peruvian culture. Spread across two floors, the exhibits showcase the use of coca leaves in Peru and the history of the plant. View the information, available in English and Spanish, about the plant's medicinal and culinary uses, as well as its role in the production of cocaine. If you don't wish to chew on the plant itself, stop by the small gift shop, where you can purchase an array of coca-laced delicacies, such as chocolates, liqueurs, and beers.
