IF YOU GO: LIMA & CUSCO, PERU

Elle (Canada) - - World -

STAY Ho­tel B in Bar­ranco is Lima’s first bou­tique ho­tel (and Re­lais & Châteaux prop­erty). The art-filled 17-room man­sion opened in 2013 in a re­stored her­itage home that orig­i­nally served as a sum­mer re­treat in the 1920s. SURF Pack a wet­suit and hit the beaches right in Lima. Waikiki and Makaha beaches in Mi­raflo­res are known to be good spots for be­gin­ners (plus, it’s easy to sign up for les­sons), while La Her­radura, in Chor­ril­los, is best for those who are more ad­vanced. EX­PLORE Go be­yond Machu Pic­chu. Yes, it’s amaz­ing—but so is ex­plor­ing the tra­di­tional vil­lages high above Cusco. Head to Amaru, where you can learn weav­ing tech­niques and buy wo­ven bracelets from the ar­ti­sans. Plus, you can ar­range to stay for lunch and try a tra­di­tional pachamanca meal that has been cooked in a pit. Book through Peru Ad­ven­tures in Par­adise (pa­pad­ven­tures.com).
