The wow factor at this hotel is the incredible front-row view it offers of the towering Gocta waterfalls, one of the tallest in the world. This is Good Life Expeditions’ top recommendations for a Chachapoyas hotel, the perfect base for exploring the region’s attractions like hiking to Gocta waterfall and exploring the pre-Inca fortress of Kuelap.
Gocta Andes Lodge Chachapoyas Hotel
This simple but comfortable hotel is located in the village of Cocachimba, deep in the cloud forest of Chachapoyas, in northern Peru. From here you can set off directly on foot to hike to the waterfalls – about a two-hour walk. For nature lovers, there are other hikes and waterfalls in the area, and cultural activities as well.
Gocta Andes Lodge offers large spacious rooms, and two suites, all of which face the waterfalls and include either a balcony or terrace to enjoy the views from. Rooms are basic but spacious with large en-suite bathrooms, and amenities including flat screen TVs and safety deposit boxes. Andean textiles and prints brighten the rooms and add a local flair.
There is a large swimming pool in the garden where roaming llamas add to the tranquil natural ambiance, with Gocta waterfalls stealing the show. The surrounding deck and loungers offer the perfect spot to relax and admire the view, especially after a long day hiking.
The onsite restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating and serves up delicious regional dishes using fresh local ingredients for lunch and dinner, along with a buffet breakfast. Eating al fresco on the restaurant terrace with views of the waterfall is a lovely experience.
