Hello all -
I'll be in Arequipa in a couple of week. Looking for a local guide who speaks (some) english. I speak some spanish, but that might be too short. Any recommendations?
I would like to spend a couple of days taking pictures of the condors. Couple of questiions for the experts here on VT:
- Can I stay somewhere overnight close to the viewpoints?
- Does anyone has contact details for local guides and/or eco-preserving groups that oversee the area?
We plan a trip from Arequipa to Colca Canyon in mid September.
We look for the fastest way to get there.
Are there any flights / fast trains to get close to the canyon?
Do you guys know any nice place we can stay overnight - the closest to the canyon possible?
Because we are seniors and cannot walk long distances, do you have ideas what kind of trip/attraction in the canyon would be the best for us?
Thank you for any helpful comment!
Which tour operator is the best for a "real" trek (without the tourist traps) and which one should be avoided? Has anybody done it on horse? If yes, with which tour operator? Any "off the beaten track" advice for the Arequipa region?
Thanks in advance...
