How does the following sound:
- 3.40am bus from Lima
- 7.20am arrive in Paracas
- Visit Islas Ballestas
- Rent a car
- Drive to Nazca
- Overflight over the Nazca Lines
- Drive back to Paracas, with a stop in Huacachina
- 8pm bus back to Lima
Is this at all feasible in a day? I know it's a stretch, but this is all the time I have before going to Cuzco.
Thank you very much in advance.
I decide to fly to Cusco. If I purchase LAN ticket on orbitz or kayak, they charge $188, whereas LAN Peru site, the base plus is $94 and flexible is $154. I noticed that there is a warning that none resident uses BasePlus is subject to $177 fine. Is it safe for a tourist to purchase Flexible ticket?
It seems Cruz del sur has sold out their January 3rd ticket to cusco. Are they going to add more bus service? If I buy ticket from other companies, which one is better,oltursa, Tepsa, or excluciva? I need to catch train at ollaytantambo around 3pm. I probably have to arrive before 12pm.
Me and a friend are planning a trip in February, we will start in Asuncion/PY and from there take a bus to Bolivia, we want to visit the lake titicaca, the salt lake and the "lagunas coloradas" and maybe La Paz and then go up to Cuzco to visit Machu Pichu. What we want to know, its what route should we take, and what buses do this route and also any other information that you guys think would be necessary.
Thank very much to you all!
Best regards =)
Can someone tell me the approximate cost of this flight one way in early May please?
I know LAN have the gringo tax but would be interested in what LAN and the others charge for this leg.
Also would i be alright booking this flight in Lima just 2 days prior to flying....? [or does it book out quickly ]
Cheers for any tips :}
We will be on our way a week from tomorrow, and with all the other logistics planned I just wanted to ask about getting cash after arriving. LP makes going to the banks/currency exchange sound like a real hassle. Is it a advisable to get a decent amount from an ATM in the airport? Will it be much trouble finding ATM's in Miraflores?
Also we'll probably end up taking a taxi from the airport to Miraflores (though I'm trying to get in touch with the hotel about a pick-up).…
We just got back from just over a week in Peru and wanted to post about it for any of you who are looking for ideas/insights/etc...
We chose two private tour guides for our main sightseeing (one for Sacred Valley, another for Manu). Originally, we were going to do Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu on our own by hiring a driver once we got there, but we ended up going another route, which proved to be a very wise decision. Our tour guide, Percy Salas (email@example.com - who…
Thanks for this amazing forum, has lot of useful information. I am planning my trip to Peru toward the end of March or early April. I heard rainy season would be over by then but tourist won't start arriving just yet.
Online search and going through bunch of website for the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, I found two tour operators Loki Travel and Eco Path Trek has cheapest deal, around $380 for 4D/3N trek. Any experiences with them? I don't mind spending a little extra money for a…
I was wondering if there are any busses going from Tacna to Arequipa around December 23th. I have been looking online, but most of the travel info dates back to 2013, and is pretty unclear. Can somebody help me out here? Thank you so much.
I'm looking to travel from Lima to Mancora by Bus and wondering which company is best to travel with: Cruz Del Sur or Oltursa. Has anyone had any experiences with traveling with either? Also any advice on which is safer as i'll be traveling alone!
