If you make the trip to Cajamarca, this hotel should be top on your list of places to visit. It is an Oasis within the bustling community of Baños del Inca and comes equipped with its own swirl on the ancient hot baths of King Atahaulpa.
When I was in 3rd grade, my parents surprised me and my siblings with a trip to Disney World. Our stay at the Hyatt Regency was so entertaining that we skipped the park and stayed by the pool all day. I felt the same way about this resort in particular. I skipped out on a tour to Combemayo to enjoy all the accommodations of the Resort, Horse ride included.
The ground in the ‘Distrito de Banos del Inca’ of Cajamarca is saturated by water which emerges from an underground river. This river, as I am told, is heated by a nearby volcano. As legend has it, King Atahualpa was found by the Spanish Conqustadors in his baths upon their arrival to the city.
The Dueno of this hotel has taken full advantage of the natural resource and has created a resort fit for a king, or Incan King to be correct. At Laguna Seca, you will find many things to do, whether you are in up for an exciting horseback ride, or a relaxing day at the spa.
The canals which feed the same pools used by the Incan King flow into the resort and are used to heat the pools and Sauna`s.
The staff is welcoming, and the included breakfast serves alimentos lactosos de Cajamarca dairy products of Cajamarca. The rooms are simple, and the wifi is slow but I stand by this place and vote it my best stay in Peru thus far. Aprovecho!
If you do not wish to stay in the resort, the pool is open to visitors, 25 soles a day for adults, 15 for children.
