The air is scented with dry earth an sporadic spritzes of the ocean breeze. We will explore the Pachacamac above and below the ground.

Afterwards, we will enjoy a traditional Peruvian lunch at “Casa Hacienda Peruana.” In its beautiful gardens, we will introduce you to the world of the Peruvian Paso horse, learning the story of this noble animal. Our exhibition includes elegant “chalanes” (Peruvian horse riders) riding beautiful horses.
