One of our overnight stops while in Peru, was a pretty basic resort in the middle of what seemed like nowhere, at Puerto Inka (or Inca). Its saving grace was the amazing Incan ruins just behind the hotel. We’d already seen the desert mummies so we knew what mummy remains looked like, and human remains and wadding were all over this place. We had just enough time before sunset to check out the ruins before heading back for dinner.
I’m not sure where the other tourists were, probably hogging the hot water after our journey, but Mum and I were the only people to be seen around this once thriving Incan port town. Stone walls, outlines of buildings, burial tombs, sand and mummy fluff.
The landscape is so desolate, its hard to believe that anyone could live here. I’m guessing they did a lot of fishing!
And seriously, is there no one that understands English well enough to translate the signs before they put them up? 🙂 For more on travel through Peru, click here.Follow @paula_from_nz
