The valley of Majes, place of fertile lands, cozy people, delicious shrimp and pisco, is located just less than three hours from the city of Arequipa on a paved road.
It can be visited throughout the year, but it is during the "Harvest Festival" (between March and April) when it shows its maximum splendor.
Another attractive celebration for tourists is the "Shrimp Festival", in which adventure sports such as canoeing on the Majes River are practiced.
Within the Majes Valley there are three districts: Aplao (capital of the province of Castilla), Uraca-Corire (whose capital is Corire) and Huancarqui.
We recommend staying in Corire or Aplao and, from there, visiting the other tourist attractions that the area offers.
Arequipa: Pick up from your hotel.
Whenever it is in the center of the city and prior coordination with the Operator.
For places outside these limits, you must coordinate with the Operator the feasibility of your pick-up or Meeting Point or additional Cost.

The town of Huancarqui is one of the oldest in the province of Castilla. Its foundation dates back to pre-Inca times, and presumably the first Spaniards founded the town on the Inca cemeteries. It gives the impression of being a passing town, and forgotten, due to the location of its square, its dirt streets and its main cobbled avenue. However, we allow ourselves to qualify it as a corner of exotic and disconcerting beauty, with a beautiful vision of nature that offers a sense of reflection, a landscape that delights visitors, we can consider it as a virgin place, few people have visited it for fear, due to the fame it enjoys.
La Tacta: It is a very interesting rock formation, eroded by the wind through the ages, which is found in the district of Huancarqui, apparently Tacta is a Quechua word that would mean flat stone or something similar...
Chancharay Medicinal Baths: Located in Huancarqui; Ten minutes from the town, from the foothills of the hill called Tomaca, several streams of water sprout, which contain medicinal properties; Chancharay mineral water is very beneficial for stomach ailments and rheumatism. In addition, many medicinal virtues are attributed to these waters, especially to cure sterility, it is said that when couples cannot have children, it is enough to bathe in Chancharay and drink its waters to start the family.
To finish, we will visit a vineyard where they will explain to us how the process of making wine and pisco is.
