      Study Abroad

      Peru Jul 9, 2014 at 7:09 PM

      Hi! I bet somebody has already asked something similar to this but I'm going to ask again anyway. Next year I'm studying abroad in Lima, Peru from January-April. I have a few questions but first I'll list some information that should help with answers. I'll be living with a host family and doing quite a bit of traveling. There is a trip to Machu Piccu that I pay for beforehand and I'll be in the Amazon for a few days. I'm not sure if it makes a difference but I'll be studying at UPC and volunteering at an elementary school. Hopefully this is enough information. If not, I'd be glad to give some more!
      What would be a good minimum amount of money (USD) to bring?
      Should I just pack a little and shop for more when I get there? Should I bring my toiletries or get them there?
      I know I need an adapter but what kind should I get? I know absolutely nothing about that stuff.
      This might be a dumb question but do Peruvians dress differently than people from the US?
      Are there any places or activities that you think I need to experience while I'm in Peru?
      Any other advice is welcome and appreciated! Thank you!

      Hotel Recommendation Please: Lima, Peru: Miraflores District

      Lima Jul 3, 2014 at 1:17 PM

      Does anyone have a hotel recommendation based on personal experience in the past year? I am looking for something mid-priced in the Miraflores district. Nothing fancy; simple is fine; clean, secure, and relatively quiet. We will be 3 adults and need 1 or 2 rooms depending on what's available. We will be staying at the beginning of August.

      Thanks for the recommenations.

    • Staying at Amantani Island with a local family but not through a tour operator

      by ignaciodiazducca Online Now Sep 16, 2006 at 7:48 AM

      Dear all,

      I am really looking forward to the idea of staying overnight with a local family tour on Amantani island.

      I have read that many have done it through a travel agency/operator. However, I suspect that the family sees far less money if the stay is arranged that way.

      I came across the following E-mail of the local community: pachatata_isla@yahoo.com

      Unfortunately, the E-mail account does not exist anymore.

      Can anybody help me on how to contact the local Amantani community and making sure most of the money is really benefiting them?

      Regards,

      Ignacio

    • Isla Amantani tea

      by seatech Online Now Aug 31, 2004 at 9:18 PM

      I'm currently cataloging my trip to Peru and would like to remember what the tea was called that we drank for aclimatising to the altitude? I think it was Matte de Muenier. Anyone know?
