Traveling as a couple allows us to share quality time with our loved one, as well as to discover new places together that will remain in our memories forever. Peru offers many options for those looking for a romantic escape, and among them Machu Picchu is one of our favorites. Here you can not only have a photo to remember with the famous wonder of the world, but many other special experiences to share together.
The first one we want to talk about is one that few travelers are encouraged to discover but that presents itself as a place that is discreet and full of beauty. We refer to the walk through the gardens of Mandor. This place, where you will not find many other travelers, is perfect for sharing a romantic walk and is easily accessible once you are in Machu Picchu Pueblo. The sound of the birds that will accompany you along the way, the feeling of being in direct contact with nature, and the reward of finding a beautiful waterfall at the end of the pleasant journey make this experience unequaled. On the way or at the end of it, it is possible to sit down to share a picnic protected from the sun by the shade of the trees and surrounded by the energy generated by the water of the fall, considered sacred in the time of the Incas.
But not only the most hidden places hold opportunities to surprise and share with your partner. The citadel of Machu Picchu can also become the scene of a love story. For example, if you purchase the ticket to visit this place in the afternoon, you can witness a unique sunset from the high mountains surrounding the Urubamba River. The light that bathes the sanctuary during this time is perfect for taking different photos and, being the least popular time to visit, you will find fewer people and more space for both of you. Finally, if you decide to visit Huayna Picchu with that special person, we recommend that you take advantage of the excitement of reaching the top and the satisfaction of having reached the highest point by offering a surprise. This scenario is ideal for a unique occasion in life, like offering an engagement ring.
Machu Picchu offers countless options for experiencing a romantic trip. If you wish to share moments of comfort and luxury with your partner, we invite you to stay at our Sumaq hotel located in Machu Picchu Pueblo.
