They have a restaurant too (or at least they used to) where you can have a meal cooked by local residents that is different potatoes cooked in different ways for every course. Crispy starter, soup, main had savoury potatoes 3 ways, then a sweet dessert. Stunning scenery too.

Andean potatoes have an amazing flavor and texture. The first time I tried them it was like a while new dimension of potatoes. Truly
