Mi estancia ha sido una experiencia maravillosa y muy enriquecedora!! No sólo he aprendido un montón de cosas, sino que es una familia que te hace sentir como si fueras un miembro más.. No me parece que haya mejor manera de conocer la auténtica cultura peruana a través de una familia, humilde en lo material, pero muy rica en amor, esfuerzo, conocimientos ancestrales, ... un lugar de una naturaleza espectacular, formas de vida auténticas y gente que te acoge con cariño. Agradezco mucho haber tenido la oportunidad de compartir tiempo y experiencias con esa familia maravillosa, un abrazo!!!!

Willka Lodge is a perfect place if you are looking for a real peruvian experience. The owner, Nelson, is a really nice guy that wants you to feel welcome and help you get to know the surroundings. He even let you have flexible hours so that you can do trekkings. The Lodge is close to the entrance of some trekkings (Laguna Ahuac) and is an unique experience in Huaraz. But have in mind that you wont have some comforts that you would when staying at the city center. There is no hot water, no wifi, and the food is very simple. They do San Pedro ceremonies, but it costs 175 soles each. Recommended!
