Upon our arrival to Sun Island we'll have a short 20 minute hike to the ruins of Pilcocaina Archeological Center, where once the Incas performed ceremonies rendering cult to the Sun God.
From there we'll continue down the Yumani Stairway, following the same path the Incas walked to arrive at the Fountain of Youth.
