Why Authentic Ecotourism?

A family-run hotel in the heart of Machu Picchu Pueblo with a commitment to sustainability,  its mission has been to protect the local environment and its indigenous culture. The hotel's sustainable practices – from staff and hotel operations to guest services – have been certified by the Rainforest Alliance and its management commits to immersing guests in outdoor activities where they can experience the authentic traditions of neighboring communities.  Guests also enjoy an exclusive, haute cuisine that features traditional Peruvian dishes prepared with exotic, regional ingredients and innovative special touches.

Aside from environmental protections to conserve energy and water along with the decreasing of air pollution, the hotel:

  • Provides educational workshops for the staff on family violence, sexually transmitted diseases, alcoholism and other topics of interest
  • Provides conservation programs, through which economic or in-kind contributions are made to neighboring communities
  • Develops athletic and cultural activities involving the staff and neighboring communities
  • Maintains a close relationship with the town of Aguas Calientes, tending to the needs of the community
  • Purchases local products from local suppliers
  • Provides informative material against sexual exploitation of children and adolescents exhibited in public areas of the hotel
