Andean Culture

More information FROM 4,000 USD
A more relaxed lifestyle

From a lively village square to a small hut smack-dab in the middle of nowhere, the vast and multifaceted Andes translates into a cultural adventure – one where you’ll witness remnants of an ancient civilization and an entirely refreshing vision of life. The major contrasts to what you’re used to will undoubtedly be enriching; however, you’re likely to find the more subtle differences the most fascinating. The greatest impact on you could come from just a simple walk down a cobblestone street in a remote pre-Columbian Andean village in which you witness life with varied twists. Children playing with sticks as a dog nips at their heels …old men oblivious yet living in the moment… the greetings, the thank you’s. We invite you to experience a different way of life; one that will make you slow down and deeply sense all that surrounds.
