The populated center of Chacan is made up of 6 sectors, and is one of the larger towns of the Anta province in the Cusco Region, 40 minutes from the city of Cusco. Historically it is an agricultural area with extensive farms. All of the families that we work with have guinea pig stables, dairy cows, or cattle. In Huaypo Lake you can fish for pejerrey and on the banks of the lake there is a beautiful recreation area. Chacán also has Incan relics, such as the “Ñusta Hispana”, which the community members happily display on a short hike.
If you would like to visit this community, we can organize your volunteering trip or a tour to discover:
