    • Jacket for Peru Andes in May

      Peru Feb 18, 2015 at 5:15 PM

      Hello everyone! Glad to have found this forum!

      I'm going to Peru in April and will under 3 months be traveling from Lima down to Arequipa and Cusco and then Into the jungle in north. I guess I won't have much use of a wind jacket on the coast or jungle but in the mountains on the other hand?

      I have checked out these two wind jackets to wear as a top-layer:

      1) catalog.bergans.com/clothing...

      2) catalog.bergans.com/clothing...

      I have tried them both out for a good price at two different stores but can't decide which is the right one. The first one is really thin and light (like a running jacket almost) but is apparently windproof. This one would be good for it's small packed size and weight. But I'm not sure if it will be enough. The second one is a bit thicker and more robust and also has more functions like ventilation-zips under the arms.

      My dilemma is this: I don't want to bring a jacket that feels to overkill and just takes up place in my backpack but I still don't want to end up with a jacket that is really lightweight and compact but can't do the job. Which one do you think is the right choice?

      Thanks a lot! smiley

    • worth visiting in march 2015?

      Machu Picchu Feb 17, 2015 at 5:12 PM

      Hi all,
      Planning on visiting cusco and doing the day trip to MP next month, however I have noted that the weather is likely to be wet. Has anyone had experience of MP in this weather? I am anxious of spending the money to go to see the amazing MP but being disappointed by poor visibility and being unable to take good photographs for the memory.
      Thank you in advance

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

      Peru 7 hours ago

      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 :)!

    • Bringing main backpack or daypack on treks in Peru?

      Peru Feb 20, 2015 at 3:34 PM

      Hello everyone!

      I'm going to Peru in April and am wondering if it is necessary to bring a smaller backpack to have on treks or if it works fine with the main backpack (it will be 60 l) ?

      Anyone with experience? :)

      Thank you!

      Tickets to enter mp

      Machu Picchu Feb 16, 2015 at 6:23 AM

      Investigating possible trip to mp in July and read it's advisable to buy your tickets to get into mp a day or so prior--we would be in Cuzco and I saw a reference to the ticket office. I was then looking at pix of mp in general and saw a reference that you must have a guide inside the grounds. So, question, is there a chance the tickets to mp could sell out? Do I need a guide to go in with us? We aren't wanting to do a trek, just enter mp. Thanks!

      shoes to pack/wear

      Machu Picchu Feb 25, 2015 at 8:54 AM

      I am travelling round Peru inc walking the last part of the trek up to Machu Picchu so wondering what footwear is best. I am then moving to a small boat for a trip round the Galapagos and again wondering about footwear. I will be using a rucksack. Would full walking boots be best or lighter walking shoes or walking sandals.
      re boat would it be wise to take canvas shoes which can get wet then walk round the various islands.

    • Salaverry Disembarkation

      by radarman143 Online Now 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

      by CommandZed Online Now 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

      by callie1989 Online Now 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?

      by halfromnm Online Now 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

      by RileyPowell Online Now 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.
