Tortuga

Find yourself immersed in the rich cultural and historical atmosphere of Cusco at El Mercado. This charming 4-star property is located three and a half blocks from the Plaza de Armas (Main Square) in the heart of picturesque old Cusco. This boutique hotel features original and eye-catching interiors and exceptional customer service that starts right at the very beginning of your adventure in Cusco.

Mercado is the Spanish word for market, and El Mercado occupies the premises of a former market located only a couple of blocks from Cusco’s main Plaza de Armas. A market is an expression of a town’s culture and traditions, a space where these may be appreciated, fostered, and protected. Visiting a market is an effective way of obtaining a deep and lasting impression of a city, a place where its pulse may be felt. Just as the countryside’s best products are brought to a market, El Mercado brings the magic of the Apus—the spirits of the mountains—to the city. The hallmarks of the Mountain Lodges of Peru experience—exceptional service, warm Peruvian hospitality, and attention to details—are found at El Mercado, creating a perfect beginning for any journey into the beautiful landscapes and fascinating cultures of Peru.

There is a restaurant, bar and room service available. The lodge will pack you a lunch if you are planning to head out and explore the region. El Mercado is the perfect way to start and end your Mountain Lodges of Peru adventure!

There are 32 rooms in total at El Mercado starting with Superior Twin and Double rooms. The rooms are welcoming, with original decor and all amenities, including wi-fi, cable tv, and more. Marble bathrooms offer a separate rain shower. Junior suites include a fireplace and stand-alone bath tub, while the main suite offers spacious interiors ideal for a family or special occasion.  

There are so many things to do in and around the Cusco area.  You can use El Mercado as your base to explore the ancient ruins, shop in town, visit villages, hike the amazing lakes and trails or just explore.

There are many flights into Cusco from around Peru.  We will arrange a transfer to the hotel from the airport.
