I want to visit the north of Peru and possibly cross to Ecuador. I've been as north to Trujillo before, but not to the beaches. I've been told that there are nice beaches near Mancora, I don't care to go northern than there if I can find a nice, not so crowded and clean nice beach. Also not sure if it is warm and sunny enough in July to swim.
A plus if you can suggest a nice not expensive place to stay in front of the beach, maybe a rustic bungalow, which would be dreamy. thank you!

Hola! Allillinchu! Hello!

I am planning on heading to the Cordillera Blanca for a week starting August 7, más o menos. I have never been to the Huarez region before, but I have ample trekking experience in the Cusco region.

I am not interested in doing it with an agency or any sort of guided tour, but I have read it is probably not wise to do it alone. Thus I am looking for a partner or two!

I am thinking the Santa Cruz trek, but am open to other ideas as well! Just anything that will be…

I am planning to visit Cusco with my family (4) in August. I would also like to see the Nasca Lines. What are the ways to get from Cusco to Nasca?

Thank you for your reply.

I was in Cusco several years ago, and arranged my visit to Machu Picchu with a local travel agency. They arranged transportation to Agua Calientes, my bus to Machu Picchu, my ticket, and return to Cusco.

Can any one recommend a local agency, in Cusco, to do this?

Are they safe places in and around Cusco where we can store some luggages for a few days while traveling around?
Thinking some hostels, hotels? I don't even mind a fee as long as it's secure.

Hi. My boyfriend is traveling for a year on his motorbike and I'll be joining him for a month in Peru.
We can't travel together as his luggage, mine and me would be too much on the motorbike.
So I'll have to travel by bus or train in between big cities. Is it safe and easy to get around as I don't speak spanish?
Can buses be booked online?

What would be a great spot as a central place around Cusco for a few weeks? It would be best to have a base but as long as there are tons to see and do from…

Hello!

I am traveling to Peru for 3 weeks in July. I am planning on doing the 2D 1N tour of Colca Canyon. The current plan is to head from Paracas to Arequipa, spend the night in Arequipa. Spend the next day exploring the city, and then that night taking the bus to Chivay and on to Colca Canyon the next morning. After the hike, I will be taking the 4M bus from Chivay to Puno.

My question is, is Arequipa worth visiting? Or should we just skip the city and head straight to Chivay? I have been…

Hello all
I am looking for help on how to get from Arequipa in Peru to Arica in Chile. For some reason its been really hard to get any information even from iPeru. I hear from iPeru that buses are on strike in Tacna and so my only option is train. But they state that the bus strike should be over by the time I get to Arequipa.
I also heard there is no direct bus from Arequipa to Arica. That I have to get off at Tacna and take a collective to cross over to Chile.

Being that I am a woman…

Hey LPers

I will be in Cusco on July 1st and hope to stay there for about 7 to 10 days to include MP and other interesting activities. Any suggestions on good, cheap, clean hostels to stay that are close to plaza de armas town center. I would prefer quite places to noisy places, a little noise is okay. I would also prefer a hostel that has a good hot shower, a good working internet and wifi, most include breakfast so thats fine, and also a hostel that includes linen and towels.

It was…
