Quillabamba is a province of La Convencion in Cusco. This region includes several coffee farms located from 1300 to 2000 MASL. Coffee farms are located around Quillabamba where I visited on my last trip. These are divided into several districts including Echarati, Quellouno, Vilcabamba, Santa Ana, Santa Teresa, Maranura, Huayopata, Ocobamba and Incahuasi.
Quillabamba is a charming town situated in the lush greenery of the Andes Mountains. It is known for its tropical climate and abundant vegetation, making it an ideal destination for nature lovers. The town is surrounded by coffee and cacao plantations, which are the main sources of income for the local farmers.
Visitors can explore the nearby valleys, rivers, and waterfalls, or take a dip in the natural hot springs located just outside of town. Quillabamba is also home to several festivals throughout the year, including the popular Festival of San Juan, which takes place in June and features traditional music, dancing, and food.
Overall, Quillabamba is a beautiful and peaceful destination that offers a unique blend of nature, culture, and relaxation.
Pictures of Daily Life in Quillabamba province
Below are some pictures I took during my last visit to Quillabamba province. Let me know what you think. I will be posting more pictures of my trips to Latin America while coding with coffee.
Most coffee bean sorting is done manually at my friends specialty coffee processing facility Kaffee 3 Granos in Quillabamba. Here I was helping out and sorting some coffee bean on a size 14 sorting shield (saranda in Spanish).
This traditional town is a must to visit. There are no tourists walking around which I like. There are some nationals from Lima that come here to get away from the city life. Yes, its a safe city and you can relax at any of the plazas while enjoying very good local food.
