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. For instance, 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. Additionally, its tropical climate and abundant vegetation make it an ideal destination for nature lovers. Local farmers rely on coffee and cacao plantations, which surround the town, as their main sources of income.

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.

My friend’s specialty coffee processing facility, Kaffee 3 Granos in Quillabamba, manually sorts most coffee beans. 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.
