The white water rapids are at their best from December until May, rushing with the high waters of the rainy season.

Sign up for lessons on the river, which has Class I and Class II rapids during the dry season and Class III rapids in the rainy season. It’s just about a 10-minute drive from the hotel to the town’s central square — the Plaza de Armas. This is a good area to check out cafes and bars. Other local landmarks to check out include the Sir Torrechayoc Church, which gives the small town some character.
The landscaping on the grounds recreates Inca monuments like the terraces of Moray. All around the grounds, you’ll have memorable views of the surrounding mountains. If you're here on business, keep in my mind that there are meeting facilities as well as a comfortable communal lounge with a TV.
Taypikala makes it especially convenient for you to get a quick meal — you could order room service, or opt for a boxed lunch to take with you on your excursoins. There’s a varied breakfast buffet included in your stay. Visit the bar for a drink and unwind in the wood-panelled lounge, which is bathed in floor-to-ceiling natural light.
Air-conditioned rooms have polished wood floors and colorful accents. Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel and each room comes with a flat screen TV. Every room has a private bathroom that’s equipped with a hair dryer. You can rely on daily maid service to keep your room neat and request that the staff take care of your laundry. When you leave for the day, you can lock up your valuables in the safety deposit box.
The landscape invites you to explore, but the grounds of the hotel make it easy to relax. There’s a spa on the grounds that offer massage. You could do a rejuvenating workout in the fitness center and then go for a steam in the sauna. The hotel also has an inviting outdoor swimming pool.
