Market Tour & Cooking Class


4-5 hours

First, you’ll enjoy a guided tour of the Urubamba Mercado, shopping for local, indigenous products. Then visit the kitchen at our Casa with one of our culinary Niños for your hands-on class, featuring a creative, healthy fusion of local traditional dishes. Then enjoy your delicious homemade feast.

The minimum charge is $100, which allows for a donation to support the Children’s  Home as well as paying for your instructor’s time and planning and your cooking ingredients. If you’d like to do this class solo, just register as if for two people. Thank you!



All hikes, tours, and classes are led by friendly, experienced adolescent youth guides from Niños Del Sol Children’s Home.  Your payment is a tax-deductible donation and helps support the Niños Del Sol Children’s Home in Urubamba and our companion residence for college kids in Cusco.

Our adolescent and young adult Niños designed these programs on their own, guided by their lifelong interactions with tourists to the Sacred Valley. They’re learning business skills as well as practicing their English while they earn a part-time income and help support their home.

We are contacted by many tourists who want to visit our home, bringing gifts or offering the gift of their labor, but for kids, this is a better option. They are learning how to earn rather than passively receive, and they are meeting donors as equals, with something of value to offer in exchange for your donation. Thank you for supporting this program.
