The Palacio faces the impressive Korikancha or Temple of the Sun and is surrounded by magnificent Inca and colonial buildings. You can reach the city's major attractions within a few minutes: the Main Square, the Cathedral, the church of La Compañía, San Blas artisan quarter, among others. Velasco Astete International Airport, as well as the route that leads to the main archaeological complexes of Sacsayhuaman, Q'enko, Puca Pucara and Tambomachay, are only ten minutes away from the hotel.
There are several centuries of history that you will be able to learn walking through the courtyards and corridors of this beautiful manor house. It was originally an ante-chamber, where important personalities of the Empire gathered, bringing offerings to the Inca. When the Spaniards arrived, the building was modified into a residence for the nobility with the name of Casona de los Cuatro Bustos. The rich legacy has been preserved and all of the facilities refurbished, so that guests may combine a well-deserved rest with the adventure of knowing Peru.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
