You’ll then cross the tracks of the Peruvian Desert on an exciting mix of concrete and desert roads. It won’t be long before you reach the charming village of El Carmen. Enjoy this opportunity to relax by the pool, and discover the vast history of this colonial town. A thousand slaves once worked the fields of sugarcane and cotton here. The history of the area is rich and complex, including a famous murder on the Hacienda in 1879 during a slave revolt. After digging into these local stories, you’ll settle into your hotel and enjoy dinner at the famous Hacienda. There’s no better way to end the day on a tour of Peru.
