I'm planning to visit Huaraz mid september (arrival around 12-15 september) to do some day-hikes (Lagunas) and a multi day hike (e.g. SC trek) on my own.
But after randomly checking a weather forecast website I was quite disappointed to see that the weather is bad, like REALLY bad. It's going to be rainy and cloudy throughout the whole month of September..==> http://www.accuweather.com/en/pe/huaraz/256878/september-weather/256878
This would mean that a lot of the beauty I'm hoping to…
Have a 4-day weekend coming up in November, and my husband and I are considering one of two itineraries: Cusco/Machu Picchu and Buenos Aires. If we choose Cusco/MP, we'll get into Cusco around noon. This leaves us with just two-and-a-half days to explore Cusco/MP because Tuesday will be spent traveling. Not enough time, right? (I've heard lovely things about Cusco from my friends and am assuming that it is worth a trip even on its own.) While my husband and I are not adventurous types -- we…

I am an avid traveler currently based in the USA looking to go to Peru specifically in Huaraz this coming long weekend to do a couple of hikes around. I just finished Mt Kilimanjaro last week and looking to do more hikes. I have heard good things about Huaraz and a couple of hikes around are just beautiful. My dates are September 1-5. I am in my late 20s, looking to travel budget/ local way and also looking to do more local things just the way locals do. I love exploring local way.
If anyone is…
We have an itinerary planned but would like to break a bus trip over curving roads from Trujillo to Huamachuco. Can anyone recommend a town to stay in (and/or hotel) between the two that would be a reasonable break for one night?
I am travelling to Peru the next 7th of September, we are planning to do de Salkantay treck on our own. the plan is to boil water and cook through this gas system. Does anybody know if this system is available I mean that I can not bring the gas bottle I need from Spain and carry it there through the plane..
I am in the (very) early stages of making rough itineraries and listing must see spots for my trip to Peru.
I have been going back and forth about Lake Titicaca, and reading that to make it worth it to go out of your way, you want to do a couple of nights and a home stay. I'd be happy to do that if it's worth it, but I have another factor to weigh, and it is that I get quite sea-sick. This is on ferry's or any slower moving boat big or small. The only exception is generally speed boats…
I'll be going from Colombia to Brazil during Sep-Jan and I'll be in Cusco mid-October. Does anybody want to group up and do the Lares Trek to Machu Picchu? Possibly the 21st October.
We are a couple in the 30's going to South and Central America for 3 1/2 months from the beginning of October 2016 to the end of January 2017. We have tried to make an itinerary for the trip - and would really appreciate your comments as this is our first time in these countries. The most important thing for us is that there is no rush and that we can be flexible to changes.
So far it looks like this:
- Flight in to Cuzco (See Ollantay tambo, Machu Pichu)
- Puno and Lake Titicaca
- Arequipa (Colca…
I will be in about 2 weeks for couple of days in Cusco and would like to attend a Peruvian cooking class (approx. half day or some hours).
Any ideas for some good offers?
