Inkaterra MPH

Travel and food writer Lucía Díaz Madurga and photographer Elías Alfageme, from the Spanish edition of Viajes National Geographic, visited Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel to explore its attractions at the foot of one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.

“With a philosophy focused on the recovery of nature and the maintenance of a living space that preserves and conserves the autochthonous, in addition to a strong commitment to sustainability, the hotel has managed to reforest every corner of the space that composes it,” writes Díaz Madurga. “Among the five hectares that make up Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel, 83 adobe villas are divided between trees, plants, native birds and fauna, divided between stone paths, terraces and streams that welcome visitors… A privileged space in which to enjoy the birds singing at dawn, tropical storms and the mysticism that is breathed at the foot of Machu Picchu.”

In addition to the lush gardens that house the world’s largest orchid collection (372 species) and 214 recorded bird species-including the cock-of-the-rock and 18 varieties of hummingbirds-Lucia Diaz Madurga praises Inkaterra’s novo-Andean cuisine and its variety of cocktails, as well as the spiritual experience of the Unu Spa (“water” in Quechua) with 100% natural botanical extracts, spring water pools and the candlelit Andean sauna.

Viajes National Geographic also highlights the initiative of Inkaterra and Grupo AJE to make Machu Picchu the First Carbon Neutral Wonder of the World, through an innovative strategy for solid waste management that allows to achieve a circular economy in Peru’s most visited destination.
