Gringo Alley - Other Activity Cusco - Peru

A narrow cobblestoned street, Calle Procuradores, just off the west side of Plaza de Armas is known as “Gringo Alley.” Take a stroll down the street and the reason for the nickname will soon become clear: everything on this street-from the handful of charming hostels, slew of artisan shops, several internet cafes and a few restaurants and bars-is aimed at tourists. It's a smaller version of Cusco-condensed into one little street. Some people love the hustle and bustle: others hate it. You will undoubtedly get hassled here by sellers, sometimes aggressively, and don't be surprised if you get offered drugs. But it's safe enough, due to the sheer number of people present. Calle Procuradores leads to a maze of small, seemingly endless alleyways where you will find even more shops and hotels.
