We stayed here after being put off by the hype of Pisco Elqui but wanting to visit the Valle del Elqui. What a find! One of the nicest and friendliest stays during our trip to Chile. Juanita and Alvaro so incredibly welcoming to their lovely home. Breakfast (with scrambled eggs - joy!) on the vine strewn terrace and a small...

Aside from being a perfect location to explore Elqui Valley, our stay at Casa Puka Yana itself was a highlight. Situated halfway between the touristy Pisco Elqui and Vicuna, the town of Paihuano was tranqul and quiet. Inside Casa Puka Yana's doors lies a hidden oasis and we spent hours relaxing on the patio, lounging in hammocks in the orchard...

We arrive a little bit late to Paihuano and we chose this nice place because of their white wall with black and red pictures. Alvaro and Juanita are just adorable and their house, bed and breakfast of "maison d'hotes" is just adorable, clean and cosy. We spent there only one night. We share some time them during the night in...

What this small hostel lacks in terms of interior accommodations (rooms a little small), it more than makes up with the most incredible hosts and beautiful, relaxing outdoor gardens. In addition to providing a nice breakfast, Juanita and Alvaro fixed lovely dinners for us a couple of nights. On the final night, these extremely talented musicians provided us with entertainment...

Just had 4 lovely days at Casa Puka Yana. The weather was wonderful, clear blue sky and surrounded by mountains. Breakfast with home made jams in the garden and chatting to Juanita and Alvaro were a great start to each day. Paihuano is a small village in Valle del Elqui, just a couple of grocery stores, two restaurants and a...

By coincidence we found Casa Puka Yana in the lovely town of Paihuano and we decided to stay here for two nights. A decision we didn't regret: what a wonderful stay it was! Our arrival was very welcoming and Juanita & Alvaro (the British - Chilean owners) invited us to join their lunch, so kind! We enjoyed every bit of...

We loved our stay with Alvaro and Juanita. The rooms and beds are really comfy, and if you stay in Summer you get to have a great breakfast with fresh juice outside in thier garden. The breakfast was fantastic with fresh pan amasado (homemade bread), eggs, and lots of avocado. We were also lucky that our visit coincided with a...

“The front room has a dining/sitting room outside its door which extended the size of our living space and it was where we were able to use Alvaro & Juanita's computer.”
