Acomayo Cultural Overview

The beautiful rural province of Acomayo  is located several hours outside of Cusco, and is the location of our bicycling and Peru homestay program. This is a tour you will not find offered anywhere else!

The program features a decent through rolling hills to the tiny town of Rondocan, an overnight homestay with a local family, the opportunity to truly immerse yourself in rural Andean life, a visit to a colonial church with al fresco paintings by a famed colonial muralist, and a scenic hike through the surrounding hills and valleys. This program is an excellent complement to classic tours of Machu Picchu or the Sacred Valley. Additional homestay days can easily be added to the standard 2D/1N itinerary.

As with all Ayni Peru travel, this itinerary can be customized or combined with tours in Cusco and beyond. Please contact us for custom itineraries, quotes and questions.

Itinerary

Day 1 : Cusco-Rondocan

Meet your guide at your hotel reception area this morning. From there, depart for Mayombamba Pass. From the pass, enjoy fantastic views of the surrounding snow-capped peaks. Contiue from the pass on bicycle, following the gentle descent of the country road. Along the way we will pass small towns and farms, fields of potatoes and corn and grazing herds of llamas before arriving in the town of Rondocan.

The location of our homestay for the night is near the main village. Upon arrival will take a break here to have lunch with our host family and explore.
Next, visit the main village, with its impressive colonial church. The walls of the church are filled with al fresco paintings by the colonial muralist Bernardo Bendetti, whose work can be found in the most important cathedrals and churches of Cuzco, Lima and Arequipa.

This evening, help your host family prepare dinner using local ingredients. Everyone will eat together, while learning about the family’s daily life.
Meals: L, D

Day 2 : Sacred Valley

This morning, rise early in order to help with morning chores and prepare breakfast. Depending on the season, this could include harvesting or planting corn and potatoes or caring for livestock. After breakfast we will say goodbye to family members and set out on the hike toward the town of Lucre.

We will walk along an original Inca road along the way, and stop for a picnic lunch at Quelca Pucara Pampa before continuing along a pretty river to Lucre. Our transport will be waiting for us in town for return to Cusco, where you will be dropped off at your hotel in the afternoon.

This was a truly awesome adventure! If you’re looking for an active, non-touristy experience, this is it! The biking was beautiful, and our guide Marco was knowledgeable and kind.
