Where to stay in Nazca Peru
This is Dan from Vagabond Buddha. I just completed a short stay in Nazca, Peru.
Having spent a few days in Nazca, I will make some recommendations of where to stay. If you select one of the places I recommend below, you will pay nothing extra, but they will pay me a small commission.
Normally, I try to rent furnished apartments when I am traveling. It just feels more homey since I travel all year. Hotel rooms generally feel to transient to me, and there is usually little space for my computer in a hotel room. But I don’t recommend staying in Nazca any longer than necessary to complete my above things to do list. Just get it done and move on to the next destination in Peru, called Arequipa. That is somewhere you will want to hang out for a week or two, or a year or two. Since you will be out touring Nazca the whole time, why spend a lot of money to have an empty hotel room or apartment? But I am going to make recommendations that range from expensive to cheap, because you may not think like me.
High-End-Hotel: This place is a gorgeous Spanish Hacienda that has been converted into a boutique type hotel. It is isolated from normal Nazca life which would be attractive to people who want to control how much exposure they have to everyday Peruvian life. You will be an oasis of tranquility which is not always a bad thing if you can afford it. If you want to see what is happening in Peru, you will need to take a taxi to town or book tours.
Mid Range: This place is about half the price of the above place but still very nice. This would be better for someone who is willing to pay for quality but still wants to be able to walk out their door and investigate Peruvian life. This is just a few blocks from Plaza de Armas.
Cheap and Nice (Where we stayed): This is a clean hotel room with a private bathroom. It includes breakfast, wifi, and a hot shower. Why spend more if you are gone all day?
Backpacker Hostel: This is as cheap as it gets. We didn’t stay here but look at how well it is reviewed. It is about 9 blocks from Plaza de Armas.
Airbnb (Room in a House): When I like a place I generally like to stay for a week or two and get the feel of it. But I didn’t like Nazca. I just wanted to get in and see the archaeological sites and move on the Arequipa. So the free breakfast where we stayed sounded better than a furnished apartment with kitchen, since we would be out all day.
