Set on 12 acres of cloud forest along the Vilcanota River, just a short walk from the train station, this is for many the preferred hotel in the area, even over the ruin-side Sanctuary Lodge. For naturalist-minded visitors, the Inkaterra's sprawling, carbon-neutral compound is on par with a trip to the Amazon because of the extraordinary diversity found here. There are 100 species of bird and 250 species of butterfly, a record-setting orchid collection, and an Andean bear rescue facility, all of which can be seen on guided excursions through the property. The large rooms are in Spanish-colonial tile-roofed casitas (bungalows) decorated with alpaca wool blankets, submerged in lush gardens with hummingbirds darting in every direction. Junior suites add fireplaces and small terraces. There's a spring-water pool and riverside restaurant that is as good as anything you will find in town, which is just a 10 minute walk past the train station.
