If you’re seeking a fountain of youth, Vilcabamba -the Sacred Valley of Longevity, is a  must-visit spot that’s not far from the hotel. Many of the area’s inhabitants have lived beyond 100 years old. Fresh mountain air, a stress-free lifestyle, mineral-rich drinking water,  and a diet high in antioxidants all contribute to long and healthy lives for the locals.
