      Peru: SIM card for mobile phone

      Peru Sep 15, 2015 at 11:00 AM

      Will be in Peru next week and plan to take my unlocked Android GSM phone, and plan to get a Movistar SIM card + S/.30 credit in Lima. I am now led to believe that registering the SIM can take up to a week in Peru. Since I will be there for two weeks only this could be a problem. (1) Is this true or can they instantaneously register it (with my US passport, of course). (2) If it can in fact take that long is there a way to shorten the period? Has anybody registered a SIM in peru within the last 1-2 years? Thanks.

    • 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?

      I know Trujillo is not a mecca for textiles, but does anyone know if there are weaving workshops or demonstrations in or near the city?

      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.

      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.
