We learnt a huge amount of Spanish in the time we were there. Miguel and his family were really welcoming. The food was also great -- they made us all kinds of peruvian specialities (lomos saltado, papas rellonas, chicha morado), and took us out to a couple of their favorite restaurants.

The Inca Trail was incredible! We really enjoyed the hiking, the incredible scenery and the sites. The guides were friendly, and seemed very knowledgable about the inca sites, and we chatted to them in Spanish when possible.
