Fun place to go see. Horseback riding for cheap, picture with llamas.
very beautiful mill we visited in the countryside of Peru. we took a bus tour and it ended in the country. we toured around the mill and rode a zip line on the premises. very fun. saw cattle and got lots of beautiful pictures. there is a gorgeous hotel that sits beside a small lake. perfect thing to do on a sunny afternoon.
