    • local long-distance bus runs normal during Easter (April 2-5)?

      Peru Mar 21, 2015 at 10:49 AM

      Hi everyone!

      I plan to take a local long-distance bus from Tacna to Lima on April 3rd.

      Then, I thought, "Oh, it's an Easter holiday." and wonder if the buses run as per normal.

      Could anyone please shed some light on this please?

      Thanks,

    • Spanish school Amauta has moved to a different building?

      Cusco Mar 5, 2015 at 1:42 PM

      Hi guys! I am planning to travel around in Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador for the next 4 months. I would like to start my journey in Cusco to learn some Spanish at Amauta. I’ve heard that the address has changed, possibly to Jose Carlos Mariátegui K-4 (Sta Mónica) Does anyone know about this? And supposedly there is agency in the same building?

    • Where to book the Salkantay trek?

      Cusco Mar 9, 2015 at 9:18 AM

      Hi guys,

      Because the Inca trail is pretty much full until August, I would like to do the Salkantay trek. Does anyone know a good place where I can book this? I prefer a safe qualified agency because I know many agencies aren't qualified for tours like this.

      Thanks in advance!

    • Flight costs to and from Iquitos

      Peru Mar 14, 2015 at 8:05 AM

      I am planing to go to Iquitos from the middle of April - mid August. How much do flights generally cost in Lima to Iquitos?

      The flight cost on the LAN website is like 180 with taxes and fees each way Lima-Iquitos. But when I compare flights to Lima or Iquitos from the states, its much cheaper to book it directly to Iquitos as a package.

      The problem is that I might want to go to Machu Pichu as well. Is it better to try and travel from the states to Iquitos and back , and try to get from Iquitos to Cusco, once I'm there? Or get from the States to LIma, and book individual flights to Iquitos, or wherever I want to go from there?

      EDIT:  Ok, i just looked at that website of available trecks on the Inca trail, and it looks like i'm completely out of luck for that.

      But the questions still remains about flying directly to Iquitos or to Lima.  As I might want to stay and look around Lima for a few days.

      Thanks.

      Inca trail

      Peru Mar 12, 2015 at 1:58 PM

      Hi everyone! I'm planning my trip to Peru for October 2015 and I have few questions about the 4 days Inca Trail.
      1. for which day should I buy the permit (I mean, should I for the starting day or for the day I'm planning to reach MP)?
      2. can I go by myself or anyway without tour operators or guides or so?
      3. planning to camp during the trip, should I bring food and water for the whole trek?

      Thanks!
      Roberto

    • Waterproof shoes or not for hiking and jungling in Peru?

      Peru Mar 2, 2015 at 11:20 PM

      Hello everybody!

      I have this question: Should one go for a waterproof shoe for trekking in Peru (both in the mountains and the jungle) or is it a better idea to go for shoes that are not waterproof but breathable shoes and thus dry out more quickly? Anyone with experience? I hear some people saying that waterproof isn't worth it but still, don't wanna get wet every time the showers of rain come!

      Thankful for answers :)!

    • 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.
