La Casa de Maruja was a great place to stay. Maruja and her husband Gilf are very accomodating helped us organise a great stay in Huaraz. Maruja's breakfasts were beautiful and Gilf's advice for activities was second to none. We loved our time there and would highly recommend anybody to stay here when visiting this beautiful area.
