Spring Break @ Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel


Elevate Spring Break with an Exciting Family Getaway to Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel
Aguas Calientes, Peru – (DATE), 2017: It’s everything kids, and parents, could want in a spring-break getaway: touring incomparable, world-famous ruins and an exotic train ride through majestic mountains, coupled with a choice of exciting cultural programs and outdoor activities that immerse visitors in ancient history, intriguing lore and beautiful nature – all from the comfort and luxury of Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel, located at the foot of South America’s premier tourism attraction.
“Our focus at Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel is on connecting families with the ancient history of Peru and local Andean culture while enabling them to spend quality time together,” said General Manager Angie Clavijo. “Our special programs and activities are designed for families to experience the best of our country amid the magnificent ambiance of our legendary mountain-top citadel of Machu Picchu.”
Guests arrive at Sumaq by train – traversing lush, brilliant-green mountains with grazing llamas and local denizens in their brightly colored traditional dress – and are personally met at the nearby station. Once at the hotel, the choices for families range from exposure to Peruvian rituals and ceremonies, to learning about the country’s celebrated culinary traditions, to local nature excursions.
First off, with the hotel’s immediate proximity to Machu Picchu, families can enjoy more in-depth tours of the ruins than tourists who typically come on a day-trip from Cusco, including a special tour that explores the mystical side of the ancient site.
There are many culinary options including the Pachamanca Cooking Class, where the family learns the ancient culinary technique of cooking dishes in an outdoor stone oven; Mini Chef Lessons for kids emphasizing the healthy, powerhouse indigenous grains and cereals Peru in known for, such as kiwicha, maca, purple corn and quinoa; or, for parents, learn how to prepare Peru’s signature national dish and drink, ceviche and the Pisco Sour.

Among the eco excursions and nature experiences are a hike to the Mandor Valley for bird watching and a beautiful waterfall; visits to another local ruin called Puente Ruinas in a stunning natural habitat; a hike to see the flowers of the Orchid Trail; and treks in several local mountains including Wayna Picchu, Putukusi and Intipunku.

With Time for Andean Tales, the entire family takes a trip back in time on a narrative adventure told by native Peruvians that explores Andean legends passed down from generation to generation.
Parents can experience the Andean wedding ceremony of Arac Masin, in full Inca dress, with their kids participating. With Pachamama, a “payment to the earth ritual,” families can engage in the traditional practice of giving offerings to Mother Earth.

In addition to activities and excursions, a stay at Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel is infused with Incan and Peruvian elements and influences. Qunuq Restaurant prepares innovative and unique dishes, highlighting both traditional cooking and the latest Peruvian culinary trends, that introduce exciting flavors to travelers. Aqlla Spa creates its own indigenous products with regional ingredients and incorporates historic Inca techniques in its treatments. Suquy Café & Bar mixes a variety of drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, that focus on Peruvian herbs and fruits.

Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel is spectacularly located on the banks of the Vilcanota River in Aguas Calientes at the base of spectacular Machu Picchu. The luxury property has 62 rooms and suites and offers an exclusive guest experience. In Condé Nast Traveler’s 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards, Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel was #11 on the list of Top Resorts in Central & South America, and the #1 in Aguas Calientes.
