We're arriving at Callao on a cruise ship for a day's visit and are wondering what safe transportation is available from the cruise terminal to Central Lima.
And what is the best way to get back to the cruise terminal from central Lima.
Can anyone tell me if they are strict about the 5kilo bag limit on the train to Aguas Caliente. I know what it says in the literature. I have booked to stay
In aguas for 2 nights and then go by train to Ollantanmbo for 7 days. Will I need to leave my pack my hotel in Cusco and go with the bare minimum.
Some have told me they had taken a pack on the train.
Anyone with recent experience?
Looking for ideas on what new places to visit in Peru after being in Cuzco (Macchu Picchu, Pisac, etc.), Puno (Lago Titicaca), Arequipa (City and Colca Canyon), Nazca, Paracas, Islas Ballestas, Huacachina, Puerto Maldonado, Iquitos and Lima in prior trips.

The problem is that there seem to be no future dates on the website for when the train will run again. Is the train being shut down, or do they just post dates at a later time? Any information is appreciated.
I have lived in Peru, so I already know the major destinations. This trip report is more for those who are coming back on a return trip, or a longer stay, and are looking for new places. We made a trip down the South Coast but skipped everything on the gringo trail - Paracas, Huacachina, Nazca, Arequipa - and looked at places in between.
