Visit Us

Would you like to come visit us in the Sacred Valley?

Now you can support our Niños’ future while enjoying a meal, class, hike, or activity in the Sacred Valley!

We get a lot of inquiries from well-meaning folks who would like to visit, volunteer, or bring gifts for the kids. As our kids are growing into adolescents and young adults, we’re moving toward a model that allows them to engage with guests with dignity, and exchange their talents rather than passively receiving gifts.

Our focus has always been on raising strong, independent leaders, with the power to break the cycle of poverty in their families forever. Your support of their entrepreneurial efforts helps them build self-esteem, language skills, poise, and confidence, as well as helping to fund the Children’s Home.

Please note that these programs are completely voluntary for our kids. They designed most of these programs themselves, and are eager to try out their skills and earn some spending money. They’re proud to be helping to support the Casa, but they are also well-paid for their time and effort.

All prices are in US$ and can be paid in cash on arrival or by making a donation to Niños Del Sol online.

NOTE: We are located in Urubamba, in the Sacred Valley about an hour from Cusco, on the way to Ollantaytambo. We can help you arrange transportation if necessary.

We have several options available for guests.

Enjoy Hikes, Classes, and Tours around Urubamba

Our adolescent and young adult Niños have developed these programs on their own, guided by their lifelong interactions with tourists to the Sacred Valley. All hikes, tours, and classes are led by friendly, experienced adolescent youth guides from Niños Del Sol Children’s Home, and are paid for by tax-deductible donations to Niños Del Sol.

Leading activities is an option that is offered to our older Niños, who benefit from practicing their English skills and are able to earn an income from their work. All activities include a tour of our Children’s Home.
