What if I Travel to…Ollantaytambo, Peru (<$10/Day)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here we stayed in a wonderfully drafty, and yet authentic, traditional Inca homestead. The town boasted a large amount of ruins and the main tourist hub was quite expensive ($35 USD). Upon local recommendation we hiked the opposite side of the valley for free, trekked up some steep but well made paths to ruins we could touch and climb, and saw not one person for the hours we were there. The town also boasted a chocolate museum and factory, as well as the entry way to Machu Picchu.
