I visited this museum coming into the sacred valley with a private tour guide. He told me the alpacas, llamas - and even vicuña, which can't be herded, are all very well cared for here and that they are promoting the teaching of traditional weaving...More

This is somewhat like a petting zoo. The park has Llamas, Guanaco, Vicuña, and Alpaca which you can feed and pet if the animals let you. There's lots of animal information, plus costumed locals demonstrating weaving and other traditional life. There's also a shop and...More
