When I travel in South America I often find I have to balance luxury and sustainability. There are plenty of hostels, guest houses and hotels but I like to choose companies that give back to the community and aren't harming the environment.
Inkaterra has been around for 30 years and was just honored by the Latin American Travel Association for its continued efforts in sustainability. There are three properties in Peru and all of them are committed to both conservation of the land as well as the culture.
Inkaterra is a great example of companies in South America that are working to preserve heritage and history while bringing great option for travelers visiting the area.
