      Study Abroad

      Peru Jul 9, 2014 at 7:09 PM

      Hi! I bet somebody has already asked something similar to this but I'm going to ask again anyway. Next year I'm studying abroad in Lima, Peru from January-April. I have a few questions but first I'll list some information that should help with answers. I'll be living with a host family and doing quite a bit of traveling. There is a trip to Machu Piccu that I pay for beforehand and I'll be in the Amazon for a few days. I'm not sure if it makes a difference but I'll be studying at UPC and volunteering at an elementary school. Hopefully this is enough information. If not, I'd be glad to give some more!
      What would be a good minimum amount of money (USD) to bring?
      Should I just pack a little and shop for more when I get there? Should I bring my toiletries or get them there?
      I know I need an adapter but what kind should I get? I know absolutely nothing about that stuff.
      This might be a dumb question but do Peruvians dress differently than people from the US?
      Are there any places or activities that you think I need to experience while I'm in Peru?
      Any other advice is welcome and appreciated! Thank you!

      Paracas Oct 17, 2012 at 3:24 PM

      We are hesitating if we should pre-book the tour for Ballestas Island & Paracas National Reserve before we go to Peru or should do the trip ourselves.

      Somehow, we have a good search online, there aren't many tours which combine both places.

      Any idea which is the best arrangement to visit both places as a day trip from Lima?

      Nazca Lines: Is Weather A Concern?

      Nazca Jan 10, 2012 at 9:35 AM

      I understand to view the Nazca Lines, you fly over in a plane. I know that sometimes, in general, weather can affect tours that involve flying. Is weather a concern for Nazca Lines flights? Will be traveling in early May. Is it better to take a flight in the morning, or afternoon, or does it not matter? Thanks!

    • Flight to Nasca

      Nazca Jun 3, 2011 at 11:10 PM

      Hi!
      We plan a roundtrip from Lima to Nasca (landing in Nasca).
      Because the land trip is very long and tiring, we desperately look for flights.
      There are no commercial flights, chartered ones are way too expensive.
      Do you guys know any travel agancies that organize such flights?
      If not directly from Lima, maybe at least from Pisco or Ica?

      Thank you for any helpful comment!

    • Things to do on 01 January in Nazca

      Nazca Oct 15, 2008 at 10:37 PM

      Hi everyone,

      I might be in Nazca on 01 January. I found out that many tours don't run or they charge more because it is a public holiday... Therefore, I will probably do the 'regular tours' and the flight over the Lines one day later / or one day before. Is there anything to do in Nazca on 01 Jan., e.g. any markets or is it possible to get to the sand dunes, any place to swim...? I'm not a big fan of museums. Any suggestions? Thanks!

      Best regards,

    • Safe airline for Nazca Line flight?

      Nazca Aug 13, 2008 at 10:36 PM

      Hi everyone,

      Can anyone recommend a rather safe airline for the Nazca Lines flight? I want to fly from Nazca - just the 30-40min flight over the lines.

      There have been quite a few stories about the safety of the planes for the Nazca Lines flight in the last few weeks.

      I don't know whether it is true, but I heard that Aerocondor doesn't have a licence for scheduled flights anymore due to safety reasons (they are only allowed to do charter flights). The Nazca Lines flights would be charter flights but I can't reach their website anymore. As far as I know, Aerocondor was considered to be (one of the) safest airlines for the Nazca Lines flight...

      Are there any news about AeroCondor? Have they given up the Nazca Lines flight?

      Thanks for your replies in advance.

      Hi,

      I'm interested in doing a daytour from Nazca to the Pampas Galeras National Park to see the vicunas there. I only found one tour operator that offers such a daytour (www.mysteryperu.com), but they don't reply to my e-mails. Some other operators offer mountain bike tours at the Pampas Galeras, but mountain biking's not what I want.

      Does anyone know of a tour operator that offers such a tour?

      Thank you very much in advance.

      Hi all,

      I'm planning a trip to Peru in August and I really would like to see the Nazca Lines. Ideally, I'd like to leave from Lima, see the Nazca Lines, and eventually end up in Arequipa, in around 2 days if possible. Does anybody know of tour operators who do this route, or if there's an easy way to arrange it myself?

      Does anyone know of a Nazca Flyover which leaves from Lima and returning to Lima without any other stops or transfers.

      The closest I can find is a flight from Lima that transfers to another flight over the Nazca Lines followed by a tour and then a return flight to Lima. I would like to find a way just to make the flyover and directly back to Lima airport. Thanks for any advice.

      Sandboarding in Nazca?

      Hello.

      Is it possible to do Sand boarding in Nazca? So far, I've only read about sandboarding in Ica, although I think I've read that Nazca is very near the Cerro Blanco? Will it be too difficult for beginners?

      Otherwise, is there any affordable one way "package" available which brings me from Lima to Ica for Dune buggy rides and then ends in Nazca, all in one day?

Prefer not to go to Lima only to return via the same route to Huancayo.
