CHICHA at the Markets of Ollantaytambo  |  Urubamba, Peru  |  Chicha is a term used  for several varieties of fermented and non-fermented beverages, many derived from maize, sometimes flavored with different fruits and vegetables. Some also have it with alcohol. Mine was non-alcoholic made out of Quinoa. I came to Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley, and asked Abel, my local guide, to take me to the market to try original homemade Chicha. And here you go. Was sweet enough and tasted great. Follow my Instagram Peru Photo Gallery for more tips, photos and videos. 

While in Lima a few days ago I also tried the famous Chicha Morada, made out of purple maize, cinnamon and clove. They drink this as a cold soft drink.

BTW if you see this sing, the red flag, on the streets or at the door of a house or bar, here in Peru, this means they produce, sell and offer one of the most precious ancient INKA drinks, the Chicha. So keep you eyes open. Carlos Melia Luxury Travel Curator –
