When it comes to getting the most from your holiday, remember that Yanque is just just the start; Arequipa is home to a treasure-trove of wonderful things to do and see. Cabanaconde, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the east, and Yanahuara, 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the north of Yanque are also well worth checking out.
Approximately 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the south of Yanque is Arequipa, a regional city where you go see Arequipa Stadium, Society of Jesus Architectural Complex and El Misti. National University of St Augustin of Arequipa, Arequipa Plaza de Armas and Museum of Andean Sanctuaries are also good spots for investigating before heading back to Yanque.
Travelers to Arequipa should spend time exploring the area's farms and open-air markets. Every place you visit has its specific history and this area has plenty of its own stories to tell. The traditional villages in these parts provide a great snapshot to the past.
There are plenty of ways for thrill seekers to experience the wide open spaces around Yanque. Zip-lining and mountain biking are just two popular ways thrill seekers here can get their fix. De-stress the way the locals do in the Arequipa region. Try camping and shore fishing.
When you are ready to pack up your gear and say "Adiós" to Yanque, you'll have many special memories to last a lifetime.
