The Lazy Dog inn. We had come early to the area In order to ease ourselves into the altitude before the Santa Cruz trek. The inn has a mission of sustainability to both the earth and the local indigenous communities. We were taught these lessons through out our three day stay. Wayne, Diana (owners) and Gina manage the inn. Combined, they are experts in geology, nearby day hiking trails, greenhouse gardening, cooking using locally sourced ingredients, the culture of the local quechua people, home decor, hospitality, and western riding (best lesson I’ve ever taken). We truly enjoyed being welcomed into their world.
