10 a.m. Get in the groove
To make it feel more like you’re actually in one of South America’s largest cities, turn to hospitality experts Inkterra for some mood setting. The brand of sustainable hotels and ecotourism experiences has long partnered with Peruvian musicians to make albums that celebrate indigenous music and culture, including Serenata Inkaterra, arranged by the composer and saxophonist Jean Pierre Magnet, and Fiesta Inkaterra, an “Andean Chill” mix by Miki Gonzalez. Or, to tap into what’s topping the charts, shuffle Spotify’s Peru Top 50, which features the most played tracks in the country.
