From lush jungle to coastal desert, and the towering peaks of the Andes that lie in-between, Peru's breathtaking landscapes are as diverse as the people that come from around the world to see them. No wonder this was one of the centre points of the ancient Inca kingdom. We are going to live one month in the mountains, a train ride away from Machu Picchu, ancient ruins, the jungle and a beautiful city to explore, colive and cowork in. Check out the fantastic video our members, Alex Nerney and Dale McManus, created of our trip to Peru in 2017:

Experience Cusco with the Tribe

Take on Cusco with the Tribe and discover a new side to Peru. Open your mind to the cocreated community experiences, adventures, and classic WiFi Tribe moments that'll make our time here one of a kind.

Find your way to Machu Picchu... and maybe a few llama friends on the way!!

You don’t need convincing to drop by the Inca ruins of Machu Picchu. A trek along an ancient path between soaring mountains to get to a secret city – the Inca Trail is the stuff of travel legends. But you are probably bewildered by the many ways to get there. Last time a group of us really enjoyed hiking the Inca Trail. This unforgettable four-day walk is one of the world's greatest, using stone Inca stairways to pass deserted villages and fields terraced onto sheer Andean slopes. Not an easy one to hike, but so worth it!

Cruise over dunes and chase sunsets

Found amongst the rolling sand dunes of Peru is the little settlement of Huacachina, which is centered around an oasis and towering palm trees. It is a hot spot for those who want to try out sandboarding or dune buggy riding and it’s always one of our favorite weekend trips.

Discover another side of Cusco

This colorful city offers an array of ancient cultures juxtaposed against modern life – Spanish colonial homes built on top of Inca stone walls, local Quechua culture alongside modern attractions, and nightlife. This is the place to try it all.

Eat adventurously

From roasted guinea pig to the world's most pungent potatoes, Peru's cuisine isn't for the faint of heart – but fortune favors the brave. Over the last few years, Peru has become something of a foodie destination. Young chefs are creating some of the most exciting – and tasty – dishes on the planet and you can have it all, together with fast WiFi while overlooking your new home town. 

Hike and climb every mountain

Last but not least, marvel at the swirling red, brown, pink, white and green swirls of Vinicunca, also known as Rainbow Mountain. It's located south-east of Cusco in the Cordillera Vilcanota range, and you can easily do it as a day trip. These multicoloured, striped formations might look more like a pack of Fruit Stripe than a mountain, but we assure you, they’re very much a real destination. 

Tribe Moments from 2023

Doing the Inca Trail with the Tribe! What a memory to last a lifetime, and everyone was so supportive even as we hiked up a mountain for 5 hours straight!


Our Sacred Valley trip hanging in the hot tub was my favourite! And I liked our chocolate-making class.


A majority of the chapter getting to Machu Picchu was really special.


I loved going out to dinner with the group each night - sometimes it would be the whole group, and sometimes just 3 or 4 people, but it was so fun to get a different mix of people each night. I felt like we really got to know each other at those dinners and I would really looked forward to them!

Highlights

This is our third time staying in our Cusco home - a boutique hotel in the prime location of the Cusco City Centre. With super friendly staff, they always action feedback from our previous chapter to create an even better experience and are trusted WiFI Tribe partners. Therefore we have quick internet despite being in the middle of the Andean mountains.

All bedrooms have work tables if you'd like to get some work done in your room away from the common workspaces. 

We're a 5 minutes walk from the Cusco Main Square and close to many cafes and restaurants.

There are 2 laundry services nearby but the staff at the accommodation kindly sorted our laundry for us.

The property is a mix of traditional decor with modern amenities. It has an indoor courtyard and a communal kitchen, dining area and living room to cowork together and unwind at the end of the day. 


Good to Know

The hot water might not flow as consistently as you're used when in Latin America but the Tribers on the previous Chapter said they had no issue with hot water throughout the day. 

Cusco is over 3000m above sea level and altitude sickness may affect a few people for their first day in Peru. Try to take it easy when we arrive, our bodies will acclimatize.  

We'll be in Cusco during it's warmest/ best weather month. When the sun sets though, the climate can get chilly quickly. Remember to pack layers or plan to buy an alpaca jumper or two in town.

Cusco is an ideal location to visit Machu Picchu - one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
