Posada del Purhuay

Top choice historic hotel in Cajamarca

This luxuriously restored 1822 hacienda, sitting on 23 hectares off the road to Granja Porcón, is a true find. The relaxing grounds are meticulously groomed, leading to a lovely hotel offering discerning service and a step-back-in-time appeal. Spacious rooms, chock-full of antiquated charm and period furnishings, surround an impeccable courtyard and fountain.

The Posada del Purhuay somehow manages to balance the benefits of a family getaway (kids' playground, gardens and horses) with the appeal of a romantic retreat. A taxi here will cost around S15 from the city center.
