  • At approximately 20 minutes from the city, I expected more of Kotosh. Travel is short (20-30 minutes) and there's not much to see, it is the only replica of the cross hands. At the start of the tour, the circle magnetic is the most interesting. Important: bear repellent!

  • It is located 20 minutes drive outside of the city. It is a pre-Inca archaeological complex that currently still in research. In one of the temples is found the figure of cross hands that gives its name to the temple. Account also with a small sample museografica of the chronology of the settlement in the area. Around the place there are rustic spaces to spend it with the little ones. If you go with children consider that stretches of walking are 10 minutes on foot.

  • I went to visit the archaeological site of Kotosh with my children, it is quite tidy and Nice, but it I was disappointed to know that "Crossed hands" are located in a Museum in Lima and not in Huanuco. Equal to the exit I could enjoy the rest of the day at recess that are located on the side of the archaeological Center. I still recommend it, it's always good to know more about our culture in our beautiful country.
