Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    To visit Peru one of the issues to take into account is the length of stay, with 60 days I would have loved to travel even more. Before visiting Peru acclimatize with the altitude.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    Nothing can go wrong in Peru wanting to walk and make new friends.

  • How was the food?

    I recommend the Cusco market. One of the most sought after for its variety and its artisan foods. MATCHA VERDE -Japanese Cafe- There is an incredible green tea and the green tea cake is the perfect combination. Jururuk - Korean Noodles - Exquisite warm ramen after a long day of walking. they have levels of spiciness and you can add additional ones such as rice, meat, cheese. They also have Soju drink.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Bring a lot of enthusiasm to this trip, enjoy the smells and patient rhythm of Cusco. Everything is admirable and its sight brings a nobility to this nature. breathe wisdom.

  • Packing tips?

    Buy Pisco, create your own chocolate design, the llama keychains that are not missing as a good luck charm, and the typical coat that all llama sweatters have make you have an extra backpack or make a place for the souvenirs that you carry to this place.

  • Transportation Tips?

    If you are like me who does not carry a tent and a sleeping bag, do not be an impediment. In Cusco there are tent rental houses and mountain elements, all for you to have a desired trekking. you leave a sign of money and then when you return it, the money returns to you. this information is important

  • Any surprises?

    When we arrived in Cusco, we saw the promotion of an event that made us happy about this ARKANA festival trip, it is a rave that lasts 3/4 days and takes place in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. In Ollantaytambo I spent some spectacular days there and decided to rent a tent and mountain elements, I must clarify that because of the height at night it is very high so it feels cold.

  • Booking details?

    Booking and Airbnb, if you want to do the Macchu Picchu walking you go up on a path to the town "Aguas Calientes" and then another day until you reach the gates of the sun. Place to contemplate and feel happy about the natural wealth. In the center of the city there are many offices dedicated to tourism that guide tourists in a friendly manner.

Lodging

  • First week at Hostel "Felix" excellent location, recommended by a friend. You can make a reservation through Booking. 1 block from "Plaza de Armas" Then Airbnb apartment near the Mall "Real Plaza".

  • In Lima, on the recommendation of a Wanderlust, I downloaded the Couchsourfing application, I stayed for 3 days and I really ended up staying a few more days in the Miraflores neighborhood since my Couchsourfing was a great person by staying in a hospitable way and with cultural knowledge incredible. Cheers for Couchsourfing!

  • Misfit Hostel. Recommended by friendly travelers, and we reserve by Booking, the hospitable volunteers warm attention.
