After donning their range of brightly coloured costumes you can have your photograph taken against a mock up of Inca terracing. The staff will take high-quality shots with their own equipment (and then post them on funyfotoscusco.com), or you can use your own camera for no charge.
After that, how about a salsa lesson? The dance space isn't the biggest, but if just a few of you want to learn a few steps, or brush up existing skills, their teachers are great. And then, back to the bar, for cocktails. Their menu is pretty varied, and all the fruit juices used are pulped fresh before you. There are tables in the shaded courtyard in front, and you can go there for a chat, a drink, and a selection of non-trademarked games ('yenga' anyone?). And losers get sent back to the bar for penalties—dangerously potent shots served in test-tubes!
It's a lively little hole in the wall place, with a youthful and fun atmosphere. The only caveat is that the toilets are not that great—best go easy on those test-tubes senor!
