    • Itinerary- Peru to Brazil

      Peru 6 hours ago

      Hello.
      I am planning on going to South America for 3 weeks. I have a few things that I would like to do, but I am not sure it is worth it to do it all in one trip. Since I have never been to South America before, Any advice regarding my itinerary would be appreciated
      - Machu Pichu: I plan to stay in Cuzco for 2 nights prior to. I am assuming in total, between Lima, Cuzco and Machu Pichu, I will need a week or more. Am I correct?
      -La Paz: Is it worth it to make my way down to La Paz, or will this take too much time. Any advice for places to visit along the way would be appreciated
      - Brazil: I was planning to potentially go to Rio De Janeiro . Is it too much to fly across the continent on a three week trip? would it be worth it? We will be travelling in June during the World Cup. Will prices rise exponentially?

      Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

      Questions, questions....

      Cusco Mar 28, 2014 at 2:40 AM

      1) Which gives a better exchange rate in Cusco, banks or money changers?
      2) What are the areas is Cusco that tourists should stay clear of?
      3) If we need to catch the 11 am train from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes, what time should we leave Cusco if we take a cab? How much is the current taxi fare between Cusco and Ollantaytambo, one-way? Or is there an alternative to a taxi, like maybe an express bus (same route)?
      4) I understand that food cannot be brought inside Machu Picchu but what about water? Could someone verify that it is allowed provided that it's in refillable containers but not in plastic disposable bottles?
      5) Finally, is it possible for Machu Picchu visitors to enter the Inca Trail in the reverse direction in order to view Winay Wayna? If yes, how much is the cost if any and is a guide still required for this?

      Thanks for any responses!

    • fast early morning/midday/evening buses Cusco/puno

      Cusco Mar 23, 2014 at 6:50 PM

      We have found some buses that do Cusco to Puno arriving at 2 pm earliest. Are there any that arrive earlier in the day? We don't really care what sort of bus so long as its cheap and fast. (Local bus...?)

      And wed also like to find a bus from Puno to Cusco that leaves in the afternoon, so arriving around 9 or 10. Just as long as this one doesnt leave in the morning and doesn't drive during the sleepiest hours, we want it.

      Why do the bus companies only have early morning or overnight service?

      Museum recommendation

      Lima Apr 5, 2014 at 2:29 AM

      We'll be in Lima on a 12-hour layover and we plan to go around on our own. I've read that there a lot of museums in town but if we had time to visit just one, which would it be?

      Thanks for any replies.
