      Puno Jan 30, 2017 at 2:59 PM

      My plan is to do Arequipa to La paz route, in 3 full days(2 nigths).

      1. Should I stay one night in Puno and one in Copacabana? What do you recommend?

      2. Is this route doable in 2 days, 1 night? In this case, were should I stop during the night?

      Thank you

    • 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

      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?
