Visiting the Hot Springs in Santa Teresa

Cusco is surrounded by beautiful sceneries; with the Sacred Valley, Inca ruins in Ollantaytambo, Pisac, and the highlight of it all: Machu Picchu. These places are probably all on your list of places to visit during your travels in Peru. However, if you have been there and you want to get out of the city and do something else, a weekend trip to Santa Teresa might be a nice option.

Santa Teresa is a village, located in the jungle on the Northwest side of Cusco. The ride is about 4.5 hours to the very small village, Santa Marina (there are no banks or ATM here, so bring enough cash money), plus 1 hour more from Santa Marina to Santa Teresa. It is located in the jungle, thus explaining why the climate is very different from Cusco. It is warmer and more humid. April to October are the driest and best months to visit the Peruvian jungle regions because there is less rain and less mosquitoes. However, the temperature can still drop to 13°C at night.
