A mountain world

On this guided tour, we’ll explore the Cerro Jaboncillo archaeological site, where you can see many artifacts dating back to the period between 900 and 1500 AD, and some even further.   

Cerro Jaboncillo is a virtually unexplored mountain world, made up of a system of terraces, water channels, and complex structures that climb up to the very top of the hill. Climb some 70 stairs here and take in the view from above. 

*While we're excited to share the unique flavors of this region with you, it’s important to note that allergy awareness and hygiene standards can vary widely across the world. The local community providing food for this tour may not be as familiar with allergy concerns or preparation standards as suppliers in your home country or the expert chefs onboard our ships. As a precaution, we advise anyone with a severe food allergy to contact a member of the onboard Expedition Team before booking this excursion.
