Welcome to Lunahuaná
Lunahuaná’s life and times are split between wine-production and river running. Both owe their existence to the seasonably turbulent Rio Cañete, whose class IV rapids provide cheap thrills for brave rafters and a vital form of irrigation for the local vineyards.
Some people incorporate Luanahuaná into an overnighter from Lima, and it’s certainly worth the effort. The best time to show up is during the second week of March for the grape harvest, Fiesta de la Vendimia. An adventure-sports festival is usually held in late February or early March.
