    • Pacaya Samiria from Lagunas

      Lagunas Aug 2, 2015 at 11:44 AM

      Hi all,

      I'm planning to visit Iquitos by taking the boat from Yurimaguas but first to stop in the town Lagunas in order to arrange some trip/trail in the jungle of Pacaya Samiria. And here comes my question:

      Does anyone know the average cost of few-day trip for two people? Any contact person in Lagunas? I'm not interested in sleeping in the lodge (no fun and moreover the cost is extremely high) but rather rough and adventorous trip with tents/hammocks. I've heard different opinions about visiting Pacaya Samiria. Some of them told that it's very wild area but the other that in order to get to wild places in this reserve you need whole week to reach the starting point in order to explore true not commercial zone.

      Any info from anyone?

    • Weather in September / Itinerary Question? (Peru 2015)

      Peru Aug 28, 2015 at 10:46 AM

      Hello everyone!

      I was looking at the forecast for weather this September in Cusco/ Sacred Valley area and it's displaying rain for the entire first half of September. How accurate are these forecasts? What is the "rain" like? I am hoping to experience a mostly dry trip, but am going prepared for rain.

      I arrive in Cusco around noon and will be staying in Pisac. Would I have enough time to drop my bags off at a hotel in Pisac to travel to Moray and Maras? And does anyone have a link to the hours the ruins are open? It's been very difficult finding hours for most of these sites.

      My schedule so far:

      Day 1:
      -Arrive at hotel around 1 pm
      -Moray
      -Maras (Salinas de Maras)
      -Dinner around 6pm

      Day 2:
      -Pisac Market
      -Pisac Ruins

      Day 3:
      -traveling to Cusco
      -spend the day in Cusco (explore ruins around area)

      Day 4-8:
      -Salkantay Trek

      Day 9:
      Machu Picchu

      Day 10:
      -Ollantaytambo and ruins
      -Spend night in Cusco

      Day 11:
      -Travel to Puno
      - Half-Day in Lake Titicaca

      Day 12:
      -Day in Lake Titicaca

      Day 13:
      -Early bus to Arequipa
      -Arrive in Arequipa
      -Half day in Arequipa

      Day 14:
      -Day trip to Colca Canyon

      Day 15:
      -Travel back to Lima (via plane at 8am)
      -Day in Lima
      -Fly out (midnight flight)

      Any suggestions on things I should change/ add? Are any of the ruins not worth seeing? All bus and plane tickets are already booked. As well as hotels (but hotels can change)

      Also, Any suggestions for restaurants in Peru?

      Thank you everyone!

      Arrival of Cruz Del Sur, and departure of train

      Cusco Aug 12, 2015 at 11:02 AM

      Good day all travelers!

      I'll be arriving in september by bus in Cusco (Cruz Del Sur). According to their time table I get there at 06:00AM. I have a couple of questions:
      1. Are these busses generally arriving more or less on time?
      2. I can't locate an address that Google maps can understand for this terminal. My ticket has "Av. Industrial Nro.121 Urb. Bancopata Cusco" marked. Can anyone point me to a google maps location that corresponds?
      3. I'm planning to take a train to Machu Picchu from Cusco. Is the station of POROY or the station of OLLANTAYTAMBO the closest to the bus terminal, and how much time would it take me to go from the bus to the train?

      Thanks a million & safe travels!

    • Salaverry Disembarkation

      Trujillo May 13, 2014 at 5:53 AM

      Would anyone familiar with the port of Salaverry and the disembarkation process know about times to exit ships. I am arriving on Zaandam at 5am on Oct 21. Assuming we do dock at 5am would it be reasonable to be able to catch a flight from the airport at 8am. I think if I can get off the ship no later than 6:30 I should be able to do it. Any ideas or advice please.

      Inexpensive lodging recommendations in Trujillo

      Trujillo Apr 28, 2011 at 5:40 PM

      Hello — I am looking for some lodging recommendations for Trujillo, late August.

      I'm not a fan of hostels, but hoping to find relatively inexpensive accommodations that provide privacy and a good, central location. Character and charm are big bonuses!

      On a related note, I'm considering the same search for a night or two in Huanchaco — any beachside recommendations?

    • Art/Craft Supply store in Trujillo, Peru

      Trujillo Jan 17, 2011 at 9:39 AM

      I'm wondering if anyone knows of any crafts/art supply stores in Trujillo, Peru. I'm thinking of a Michael's or JoAnn's but I'm not sure if those even exist in Peru. Maybe just a fabric store? Any help would be much appreciated! I already looked at Plaza Vea and didn't find what I wanted.
      Thanks!

      Wheelchair accessible travel?

      Trujillo Sep 16, 2007 at 11:41 AM

      Greetings! My wife and I will be visiting Peru in early October. The complicating issue is my confinement to a wheelchair since having two major sugeries last year. I will be taking a small folding tavel wheelchair. Will it be possible to hire taxis to drive us btween cities? Are there any wheelchair accessible hotels and restaurants? We have engaged a tour company to show us Machu Picchu and Cuzco, then heat up the Noth coast to Chiclayo, Trujillo, and Sechin. We'd also like to see Chavin de Huantar, but can only afford a couple of days of expensive tour travel and have used those up on MP and Cuzco. Any advice would be appreciated!

      Thank you!

      Tren de la Sierra

      Trujillo Sep 29, 2005 at 12:57 PM

      Has anyone ridden this train from Lima to Huancayo? It is called the world's highest railway line and the article stated that there is bottled oxygen available on board for low landers like myself so that we won't suffer altitude sickness. The highest point is at 4,829 meters above sea level. I plan to visit an internet sweetheart in Trujillo in December and am tempted to take this ride. The ride sounds scarier than the most advanced roller coaster.
