Located in beautiful San Blas along a street with plenty of other high-end boutique stores. Lamaland is a boutique store where you can find hand-sown traditional and modern design clothes made out of alpaca. They also have no shortage of jewelry and art available for purchase. Without a doubt one of the more unique stores in Cusco.


Store, Shop

Eibhlin Cassidy is the designer and owner of this small boutique store in San Blas. “Each collection is a journey into another realm from post-apocalyptic visions to subtle sensuality and gender play, to ethereal shadows of the past,” according to their website. As soon as you step into the store you feel a sense of her artistry and creativity. Her designs are one of a kind and you’ll only be able to find them while in Cusco.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
