The Andean Spectacled Bear Programme

Here at Inkaterra, we’ve got something to ROAR about; we’re delighted to announce an exciting new offering at Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel, offering our guests a unique insight into the day-to-day existence of the real life Paddington Bears.

Families and Paddington Bear fans alike, can enjoy a three-night programme where they can get up close and personal with the real life Paddington Bear at our Inkaterra Spectacled Bear Project. Shadowing an Inkaterra Explorer Guide and expert Bear Keeper, guests will visit the rehabilitation centre, captivity and semi-liberty areas. Not only can they can learn more about the project, but they can also assist our keepers with the cleaning, monitoring and feeding of the bears – sadly, no marmalade sandwiches allowed!


We will also be providing our guests with a bear-friendly welcome pack, containing a greeting from our founder, Jose Koechlin. We are also including a copy of “Coco, The Andean Bear” story and a special one Sol coin, uniquely engraved with an Andean Bear from the Inkaterra Spectacled Bear Project in a bid to raise awareness around the endangered species in Peru.
