We are based in Posada Santa Barbara, a family-owned hotel in Chucuito, located 18 kilometers from Puno. We offer horseback riding, guided walks, riding lessons, Horse Coaching and Equinotherapy. Posada Santa Barbara´s property covers 8,000 square meters and overlooks Lake Titicaca and is cradled by the Cordillera´s white mountains. The surrounding Andean landscape ranges from agricultural fields to majestic, wild mountains. The property includes three buildings. The structures were intentionally designed by Santiago, who interpreted the Andean ancestoral concept of harmony.
The buildings were built according to ecological concepts and Andean techniques, utilizing the gifts of Mother Earth (Pachamama). Most building materials, such as stones extracted from the Earth, were directly incorporated into the buildings. Our philosophy at Posada Santa Barbara continues to embrace a close relationship with the Earth. The main building includes the reception, restaurant, bar, and pizzeria with a wood-burning oven. A large veranda with mosaics on the floors, wrought iron details, flowers, and stone tables overlooks the garden and Lake Titicaca. An auditorium of 120 square meters is available for Yoga lessons, conferences, private parties, birthdays, weddings, and exhibitions of any kind. Posada Santa Barbara’s rooms consist of two floors (for max. 4 or 5 people) with heating, small private bathroom, and 24-hour hot water from our solar panel water-heating system. The private terrace next to the rooms is a great place to enjoy a breathtaking view of the mystical Lake Titicaca and the surrounding snowy peaks of the Andes.
