Then to the Main Square, where you will visit the cathedral, the most important religious building in the city. The climb continues to Sacsayhuamán fortress, an impressive example of Inca military architecture. Then to Kenko, where the sun, moon and stars were worshipped. Next, a visit to Puca-Pucara, which may have been a rest and lodging place for the Inca.

In the evening, you will enjoy a truly unique experience in the Cusco Planetarium, located only 15 minutes away from the center of the city. Here, you will learn about the important relationship between the Andean man and the cosmos. Thanks to special equipment, a starry night will be projected as well as drawings of constellations, which will allow you to experience the wonders of the universe up close.

Once at Lake Sandoval, you will take a ride in a small rowboat looking for the river otters. You will have the opportunity to see a large variety of reptiles, mammals and birds in their natural habitat. When the guide finds the ideal spot, you will stop for breakfast. The next adventure will take you to Monkey Island (This activity is subject to the season and the guide's discretion, due to various factors.) On Monkey Island, around five species of monkeys live in the wild. These animals are already used to visits by tourists and may come close to people, so you must always follow the instructions of the guide. Return to the lodge for lunch, and in the afternoon you will climb to the observation towers with a height of 42 meters, designed for bird watching and enjoying the sunset.
