CHUG: Mate de coca. Made from the same leaves as cocaine, this delicious tea doubles as a bonafide cure for altitude sickness
EAT: Yajuu. It may look like the culinary equivalent to Subway, but reserve judgment on this Peruvian chain until you’ve had one of their sandwiches de pollo
EXPLORE: Pisac Markets. Hire a taxi and head an hour out of the city to this busy bazaar filled with brightly colored fruits, veggies and Alpaca wool goods.
ADVENTURE: Sacred Valley Via Ferrata & Zip Line. Rock climb high over the Sacred Valley to enjoy the stunning view and thrilling zip-line all the way down.
LUNCH: Jack’s Cafe. An institution in these parts, as evidenced by the always long-wait.
SPLURGE: Chicha. This fancy shmancy dinner spot is helmed by Gaston, the Anthony Bourdain of Peru.
DRINK: Mama Africa. Bond with locals and travelers alike at this small scale club.
ORDER: Trout. It’s a specialty in Peru, along with guinea pig (which tastes like fatty dark-meat chicken in case you’re curious).
