Hello all - I have posted a couple of times and due to my time constraints and all of the helpful suggestions on here I've come up with the following itinerary:
Day 1 Arrive Lima 9pm
Day 2 Lima -Miraflores airbnb
Day 3 fly from Lima to Cuzco catch taxi to Pisac and stay 2 nights
Day 4 Pisac
Day 5 Pisac - Ollantaytambo stay 2 nights
Day 6 Ollantaytambo
Day 7 Ollantaytambo - Cuzco
Day 8 Cuzco
Day 9 Cuzco - MP via train
Day 10 Cuzco back to Lima to catch flight in morning
Day 11 fly home
Can you please let me know if the itinerary I am thinking (Of course reading a lot of ideas in forums and guide books) make sense or need some modification? Also if possible reply few question.
I will keep posting only the part of itinerary in respective forums, like here will post for Peru Part only.
18-Oct - Arrive Lima and Stay somewhere near Airport (We will arrive evening and no flight it seems for Cusco)
19-Oct - Fly to Cusco and Visit Sacred Valley and stay in Olyantambo
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.
I was in Peru two years ago. I saw that the prices for doing walk-ups to the summits of Misti and Chachani were roughly half the price if you got it together in Arequipa, instead of booking it over the internet…
I will be working in rural towns in Chumbivilcas on a training contract. Wondering what clothes would be appropriate for a woman working with many community groups and stakeholders. I would like to appear professional but also approachable. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
**Hello all nice travelers and Peruvians! :)**
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. In LP Guidebook (2016. edition) it just states opening hours, there is no ie "open Tue-Sun", which would imply that it is open every day. The same information I have found on "HowtoPeru" website (post is…
Is train the only way to get to and from MP from Cusco? I'm looking at RT prices on Peru Rail and its not cheap! We are in Cusco for 3 nights and meeting up with family there - tickets to MP for October 27. Any suggestions?
Just a heads up
I got approached in Lima by a "German tourist " who gave a long story about getting ripped off by a taxi driver. He stated he was having problems with the embassy and couldn't get money for 5 days.
He then asked for money and promised he would wire it back later.
A good scam as if it's true it's horrible but I'm 99% sure he was lying and didn't give him anything
One to watch out for, read similar stories from people on Trip Advisor too.
I am hiking up to Salkantay Pass next May and would like to stay in Mollepata the night before heading out. Do I need to make a reservation somehow or will there be availability to stay somewhere? Can you recommend a place and maybe contact info?
Hello! I hope to head to South America next month and would really like to do an ayahuasca retreat while there. It doesn't have to be in Peru, but Peru seems to be the best place to find what I'm looking for. I am not looking to "get high" or "trip", however I do desire to find out about myself and possibly figure out some rough times I've been through lately...come to accept things, if you will. I realize that this is a very powerful experience, and certainly not to be taken lightly.
I can fly…
