Cusco is an outdoor junkies’ paradise with vertiginous peaks and gentle valleys to climb, bike and hike. But, what happens when you forget an all-important piece of your kit back home? Left behind your warmest fleece or that all-important carabiner clip? Don’t despair. We are delighted to add to our category of ‘Best Shops in Cusco‘ the Tatoo Adventure Gear store.
Now, just so you know, Cusco is packed with shops selling and renting knock-off outdoor clothing and hiking gear, but don’t be fooled! When you find yourself camping in the Andes at over 4,000m you’ll be glad you invested in the real deal to keep the cold, wind and rain at bay.
Tatoo Adventure Gear is our go-to store for all our outdoor equipment including the basics such as daypacks and fleeces to more technical equipment like water purifiers, camping gear and climbing equipment. They stock only the best international brands including Marmot, Osprey, Rab, Buff, Lowe Alpine, Salmon and their own Tatoo brand. The Tatoo store is where you will find everything from clothing, Nalgene drinking bottles, stainless steel coffee pots and mosquito nets to carabiners, quickdraws, harnesses and everything else in-between!
