Staying here will put you right outside the Plaza de Armas, which is one of Cajamarca’s main attractions. Go here to see the Cajamarca Cathedral’s elaborate façade, which was carved out of beige stone in the 17th century. Buildings with picturesque red roofs surround this cathedral. Walking distance from the Plaza is the “Cuarto de Rescate” – the ransom room. This landmark may look like a simple stone structure, but is believed to have been central to the fall of the Inca. According to legend, this room served as the holding cell for Atahualpa, the last Inca king. In the vicinity of this historic district you can find a good deal of restaurants and cafes.
All of the rooms at Costa del Sol have large windows and good lighting. Modern art decorates the walls, and wall-to-wall carpeting adds a touch of coziness. Each room has its own well-stocked bathroom.
You’ll have a flat screen cable TV in your room, along with Wi-Fi. If you have work to do, sit up at the desk to facilitate your concentration. Store your valuables in the safety deposit box before you leave for the day. You can help yourself to the room’s minibar, and keep in mind that the hotel offers 24-hour room service.
In the morning you should head down to the breakfast buffet, which is included in your stay. The dining area has glass walls that allow diners to admire the Plaza de Armas, which is one of the busiest parts of the city. At the breakfast buffet you’ll get to sample some of the local cheeses, which are a specialty of the Cajamarca area.
The hotel’s Walak Bar is designed to take your mind off a busy day. They serve an impressive list of craft cocktails, although you can also find plenty of old standbys if that’s what you’d prefer. Costa del Sol has a variety of event rooms available for booking. You can choose from auditoriums, classrooms, and banquet halls.
You don’t have to leave the hotel to find everything you need to keep your vacation on track. Visit the gym for a workout, and clear your mind in the hotel’s spa. You can book a massage, go for a relaxing swim in the rooftop pool, or feel soothed by steam in the sauna or the Jacuzzi.
