Cieneguilla: A Retreat to the Countryside on the Outskirts of Lima
If you feel the need to escape the hustle and bustle of city living and want to enjoy the quiet and peace of the countryside, yet be close enough to the modern conveniences of suburban life, try spending some time in the beautiful protected ecological zone of Cieneguilla.
In Cieneguilla you will enjoy an excellent climate and abundant sunshine almost all year round. Cieneguilla, a nature lovers delight, is located in a river valley nestled between majestic mountains and draped in natural splendor. In this spectacular nature haven, you will wake in the morning to hundreds of birds flocking overhead and to the fragrant aromas of exotic plants and vegetation. Cieneguilla offers visitors a lovely rural setting where they can enjoy hiking and walks, horseback riding, visits to the river, mountain climbing, exploring archeological zones, and tasting delicious Peruvian cuisine at nearby country resorts. There are a number of resorts where guests may spend the night such as Casa de Campo or Valle Esmeralda, or if you choose to stay at a villa and have the entire grounds to yourself, try Villa Condorhuaca.
