Our house, your house. Experience a private cottage surrounded by nature in our property (3 ha). Cocachimba is a peaceful village facing the majestic Gocta waterfalls. The cottage is 1 km away from the village, accessible via a private road and a 5 min steep footpath. You'll enjoy privacy, silence and a spectacular view. Hot water, fully equipped kitchen, 2 double beds, and WiFi.

Check in at 2 pm (earlier only with prior coordination)
Check out is at 11 am (later only with prior coordination)

The space
The cottage consists of one large room, which includes the kitchen, lounge and two double beds. Huge glass windows allow for a spectacular 360° view of the surrounding mountains and the waterfall (which you can even see while lying in bed!). Outside, a large roofed terrace with dining table allows you to enjoy the view while relaxing, eating or working. The bathroom is located right outside the cottage, and we guarantee that your shower will be accompanied by one of the best views you've ever seen :)

The kitchen consists of a gas stove with four hobs and oven, sink and lovely cooking space with all the basic pots, pans, plates etc. There's a small fridge too. Please make use of the water filters, because the water comes unfiltered and unchlorinated from a mountain stream.

Please note:
- We have electricity. For laptops, we recommend using a stabilizer because the current in Cocachimba can fluctuate, especially when it's been raining. There are 2 available.
- There is WiFi. For phones, we recommend Claro, which has 4G signal in the house and also most of the village.
- There's a washing mashine in the storage room behind the bathroom.
- We have a small trampoline for little ones! (use at your own risk please).

You can buy food, including some fresh vegetables, in Cocachimba. For a larger selection, head to the markets in Pedro Ruiz or Chachapoyas.

Where you’ll be

Cocachimba , Amazonas, Peru

This is our favorite part of Peru, because it has so many beautiful things to offer: hidden ruins from the mysterious Chachapoyas culture, waterfalls, rare animal species, and breathtaking landscapes. It's lush and green, but not as hot as the  lower Amazon, and you don't have to worry about dengue and malaria.

Highlights (ask around in Cocachimba for more information on how to get to these places):
- Gocta waterfall (accessible directly from the cottage/Cocachimba via a 2-hour hike (one-way). You can hire horses in the village if you want. To reach the bottom of the upper waterfall, you can also hike via the village of San Pablo. Both hikes are beautiful and unique in their own ways. If the weather is good, you can also connect the two hikes, starting in either village - note that if you start in Cocachimba, you'll have to do a strenuous uphill hike to get to the upper falls, while from San Pablo, you'll have to walk that same stretch downhill.)
- Yumbilla waterfall (just 30 mins. from Cocachimba)
- Kuelap Fortress (the Machu Pichu of the north, which now has a brand-new cable-car, beautiful to get there). This is about 1.5 hour drive away from Cocachimba.
- Cliff sarcophagi of Karajia and San Geronimo (the Chachapoyas culture buried their dead in high cliffs).
- Huaylla Belen valley.
- Huembo (home of the famous marvelous spatuletail hummingbird).
- City of Chachapoyas (a beautiful old Spanish colonial city, the capital of Amazonas).
- Leymebamba museum (one of the best museums of Peru, which focuses on the Chachapoyas culture - with the distinctive mummies and sarcophagi of this culture).
- Forest trekking (lots of options).
