The minibus rolled into Chacha in the early evening, but the town was still impressive after the run from the border. As we approached everything felt different – older, funkier, and with more character. We shouldered our backpacks and made the short hike to the main square, the Plaza de Armas. The Hotel Revash had been recommended to us in Vilcabamba and it did not disappoint. Right on the main square, in typical colonial Spanish building over 200 years old. We got a nice corner room on the second floor, with attached bath, for 60 Peruvian Solas per night, about $25. We had to bargain hard to get it down to that price, but since we were bargaining for two rooms they finally met our price. Most likely because they make their main money from the tours, and they knew that we were more likely to use their service if we were happily staying there.
