The trip to Caraveli is a delicious adventure for encountering breathtaking nature and the best climate of Peru. Here, you can enjoy the warm sun all year long with temperatures that reach a maximum of 28 degrees Celsius.
The climate is agreeable and dry all year long, though it is hot in the summer and mild the rest of the time. It can be a bit chilly though earlier in the morning and in the evening.
February 2nd is the date when there is celebration for the Patronal fiesta paying homage to the Virgen Mary who protects the city. Those who are devoted in Peru and in other parts of the world assist in joining together for this religious day. Other social activities such as dancing, bull fighting, and sports championships take place during the first week of February.
The beautiful scenery in the valley of Caraveli is ideal for capturing lovely photographs, taking long walks, horseback riding and mountain bicycling. Piscos, wines and traditional sweets of the region are wonderful to indulge in during your time there. If you need to fight off the heat, it is a great idea to bathe in the crystal water wells in Chuñuño.
Known as Llacpatera until the early years of the 20th century, this archaeological center during the incan times was constructed on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. The Incans habituated this area between the 13th and 15th centuries.
In this place we can find that there are a series of rooms made of stone, terraces, burial chambers, and underground deposit areas where fish were most likely kept. More than likely, the Incans would have stored these fish and later taken them onto Cusco, the capital of the Incan Empire.
Some archaeologists and historians affirm that the Puerto Inca would have had a small relationship with Cusco since the existence of the Inca path lay much towards the coast towards the capital of Tawantinsuyo. Here is where the path would have passed through the valleys and the high zones of Ayacucho.
Very nearby to the archaeological zone, we can find a beach hotel with areas for camping and very close to the city ¨Chala¨ that is filled with older and modest restaurants that offer exquisite meals of fish and other types of seafood.
