      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?

    • arriving in cusco

      Cusco Mar 22, 2014 at 6:20 PM

      I am heading to Cusco this April 11-28th. I was told to head straight to Sacred Valley after arriving into Cusco to help avoid altitude sickness I arrive at approx. 10:30am on Saturday and need to return to Cusco sometime Sunday afternoon. Is it worth spending the travel time? I will be doing volunteer work during the work, but have weekends off. Must go to Machu Picchu, do I need to purchase entrance/ train tickets this far in advance. I'll have a couple of weekends free which is when I plan to go to Machu Picchu and probably the Sacred Valley. Do you think I need to book entrance and train tickets in advance or can I organize it when I get to Cusco? Ideally would prefer to wait till I get there in case I want to change things around. Thanks!

      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.

      Ballestas Islands vs.Huacachina ?

      by swdke Online Now Jan 10, 2012 at 9:46 AM

      Some tours I am considering involve visiting Balestas Islands and Paracas reserve. Someone suggested to me, instead of visiting Ballestas Islands, to instead, have a tour of Ica and Huacachina oasis?

      What do suggest and why? Thank you.

      Bus from Ica to Ayacucho

      by hawkhead Online Now Jan 9, 2012 at 8:37 AM

      I don't have much hope of receiving a reply in this forum as even the most recent activity is some time ago. However, hope springs eternal......

      How would we go from Ica to Ayacucho by bus? Would we need to change in Pisco i.e. stand and hope on the Pan Americano? Which bus companies?

      Thank you.

      Casa De Arena's Contact Info?

      by snowboarder74 Online Now Jun 2, 2006 at 8:48 AM

      Does anybody have the correct telephone number for the Casa De Arena Hostel? I have been trying to book us a room for our stay but having trouble finding their correct phone number or email. The phone#/emails I found for them on the web don't work.

      Anybody who has recently stayed there might help me out with their contact information. Or even any information on how to book a room in advance would help too.

      Thanks.

      Is Aerocondor the only company to fly over the lines from Ica? I know there are several cheaper options from Nazca, but I did not know of the availability in Ica.
