Located just 30 minutes outside of Cusco in the small village town of Huarocondo, GringoWasi is a quaint bed and breakfast where you can experience true Andean culture just outside your door. At GringoWasi you are close enough to all the major ruins and sites, yet away from the hustle and bustle of Cusco city life.

Whether you are looking for an all-inclusive package, lodging in a typical village, are interested in escaping the tourist vibe or if you just want a quiet place to relax after a trek, this is it. In our quiet town of Huarocondo you will enjoy peaceful nights, and beautiful scenery, Huarocondo is the perfect place for relaxing after a long day of exploring sites, and you can even sit in the main plaza without the worry of being bothered by vendors selling souvenirs. If relaxing is not your thing then you can take advantage of our rural location and explore the many trails around town, some of which wind through fields of choclo, potatoes, abas or quinoa. You can get a work-out hiking up one of the local mountains, or take a leisurely stroll to the local Incan terraces close to Zurite. If you are interested in seeing the many archaeological sites in the region, don’t worry, we can arrange tours or transportation to any place you may be interested in from Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley to the lesser visited sites like Tipon and Pikillacta. We can also arrange transportation to and from Cusco if needed and public transportation is readily available, for those preferring to get around on their own.


GringoWasi is not a hotel or hostel, but a true Bed and Breakfast, offering comfortable and spacious rooms that all include a full breakfast each morning. So if you are looking for an experience a little different from the normal tourist, are interested in local culture, or would just like a quiet place to call home for your visit, look no further than GringoWasi.

This spacious room features one double bed, a table with two small chairs, one larger chair for relaxing, night stands, small armoire, towels, linens, down comforters, locally handcrafted décor, lockable storage, 32” LCD television with satellite and DVD player, and shares a bath room with two other rooms.

Lyle and her husband are the best host! I went to Peru with little planning and they helped me on literally everything, from picking me up in the airport to schedule bungee jumping lol. The town is very nice and not touristy, but also close to Cuzco and Machu Picchu. Clean and spacious room. Thanks you really made my trip to Peru more enjoyable!

Response from Lyle:
Thanks Aoying, we were happy to help with your planning and we enjoyed watching you do the bungee jump, and one slight correction, it should be Lyle and his wife.

Absolutely wonderful stay with Lyle & Lily! They were so helpful and attentive to any needs. Very professional with how they run everything, yet at the same time having a real 'homely' feel—they were kind of like a mum and dad away from home :) I left a book in my room after I checked out and they were so kind to drop it off in Cusco for me. Amazing people!

This was one of the best places to stay and the most comfortable of all. I would highly recommend staying longer then a few days. A bit away from things but easy to get around from the small town. The hosts were very helpful and easy with everything. I would go there again. Planning next year to stay longer and bring friends. Thanks much. Electrum

Met at bus and even stopped at a local market not in guidebooks on the way home because we wanted to do that. Lyle and Lily make a study of how to be the best hosts from little things like a layout of teas and drinking water accessible at all times to big things like arranging taxi tours and hotel stays. homemade typical dinner with all the guests is not to be missed and happens every night. Lily runs a tight ship but a very cozy welcoming stay...super clean, super functional...Lyle has made this beautiful old hostal in tip top shape and you never run out of hot water or plugs that work. the town of Huaronco is charming...don't miss the glorious colonial church in the square. you do have to go to Izuachaca to get most places but we found it easy. L&L can arrange drivers for

Thanks Ela, you and Rox were great and we hope you enjoyed your time in Puno as well. Glad you two enjoyed the walk around the market and the dinners as well.

Comfortable room. Delicious food with actually enough to fill you up (unlike your average peruvian breakfast). Hospitable hosts. Overall an enjoyable experience, especially if you prefer to be outside the big city. If relying on public transportation the times to cusco can be iffy. And the hot water is average for the cusco region (electric not gas).

My wife and I have enjoyed traveling for many years and have visited a lot of places around the world, recently we decided to enter the hospitality side and open our own bed and breakfast in Cusco. Being seasoned travelers, we know the value of a comfortable and quiet place to rest, at GringoWasi we and are dedicated to ensuring our guests are well rested and ready for their next day of exploring.
