i have some question about money in peru:
Is it possible to use there Prepaid-Cards (with Master-Card-logo) - it means cards at which I paid some credit at home before - esp. from "Reisebank" or other compagnies to get money from ATM in Peru ?
Can I use travellers cheques in Peru ?
We are about to get our train and bus tickets for Peru, and just now we realised that on Inca Rail website it says how credit card, which was used for purchase, must be presented. That got me thinking if the same is maybe also for Movil buses, just as the website is in spanish, it could be that we haven't seen this. Does anybody know what the situation with Movil is?
(Peru rail on the other hand doesn't say anything about possesion of CC)
I personally find this ridiculous, because, just a simple…

Can people who have done circuit treks in Peru offer estimates on how much I should plan to spend on
-- a 12 day circuit trek of the Cordillera Huayhuash, and,
-- a 5 day circuit of Ausangate?
If I make the arrangements in Huaraz and Cusco, instead of from outside of Peru.

In one and half month I am heading off to Peru with my three friends. We will try to travel lowcost. But. I have just found out on many travel sites not to travel lowcost companies. It is definitely much safer travel by recommended companies instead of lowcost.
Can you give me any advice to reliable and safe bus companies
Thank you so much :)
I am trying to get a confirmation that the Bruning museum is opened also on Mondays. Has anybody visited it recently and does he remember what the situation was?
We found out that Museum of the Royal Tombs of Sipán is not opened on Mondays, but for Bruning museum we find different information.

The same information I have found on "HowtoPeru" website (post is…
