    • Peru- use of ATM (Scotia Bank)?

      Peru May 19, 2015 at 10:24 AM

      We are traveling to Peru in September. In most countries I try to use an ATM at the airport to get the local currency before I step out. My bank - Bank of America - has an agreement with Scotia Bank, allowing for charges to be waived. So that would be my preferred ATM and my questions are:
      1. Is there a Scotia Bank ATM at the Lima airport?
      2. Can Scotia Bank ATMs be found in other popular areas - Cuzco; parts of Lima; Puno?
      Thanks.

      Peru May 25, 2015 at 7:39 PM

      Hello travelers:
      My partner and I will be traveling to Peru during winter break, 12.20 -12.31, and we will spend most of our time in the Sacred Valley area. I've heard that Christmas or Christmas eve is in Cusco is a sight worthy of being there for, which is right in the middle of our trip. Trying to figure out the flow of our trip in order to make in Peru plane flights. Machu Picchu and Sacred Valley I anticipate 5 days to visit ( Olly, Urubamba, aguas calieinte), and 2 days in Cusco. I have read through a couple of guide books but I'm still not sure what to do besides the sacred valley area in the Cusco region. Since we're from Oregon we thought about the beaches. Is it worth going to beaches north of Lima for sun and warm ocean? Not usually a fan of big cities, we like cultural and hiking experiences. I don't think we really have enough time to fit in Arequipa?
      Appreciate your knowledgable imput. Thanks.

    • Bus?

      Piura Oct 3, 2008 at 9:17 AM

      HI
      I'm going to Piura next summer and just wondered if you know of any bus companies I could contact?? I'm not a keen on air plane travel at the best of times and as the flight from lima to piura is known to be turbulent I'd rather take the bus, but don't seem to be able to find any bus companies. If you know of any I'd appreciate it if you could let me know.
      Thanks a lot and kind regards,
      Verena.
