Peru7 days / September 2018

Highs & Lows

Do not miss "San Pedro Market", that's something you will really appreciate

Cuzco is very cold but the sun burns a lot if you are under it for a long time

Itinerary Overview

The first place I visited when I arrived in Peru was Arequipa which is a huge city with long streets and very nice food, the hostel I stayed in was very comfy and the people there was very helpful to help me find the places I was looking for.

My next destination was Cuzco which is a little bit colder but I got sunburned a couple of times when I was walking around, so it was a weird combination that made my trip more interesting.

And the last place I visited in Peru was "Máncora" which is a fantastic beach very close to the border with Ecuador where I could flow with the vibe of the locals because for some reason the people there are more relaxed which is necessary after visiting cities like Cuzco or and Arequipa.

 

  • 2 Nights: Arequipa
    I love to admire the good architecture which is very present in this city
  • 2 Nights: Cusco
    It's one of the most famous and beatiful places in peru, ruins and inca culture is present everywhere
  • 3 Nights: Máncora District
    Have some time at the beach and Party a little while

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I would have stayed less in Mancora because I like beaches but not for too long

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    We almost missed the flight because the fell asleep, but luckily we got to the airport on time

  • How was the food?

    It depends on what you like to eat but there are a lot of seafood restaurants in Mancora

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    try to always travel with as less luggage as you can to avoid paying to much money

  • Packing tips?

    just what is necessary

  • Transportation Tips?

    buses are cheap in Peru but if you take your time to search for a flight with Viva Air or in sky scanner sometimes you can pay the same as the bus.

  • Any surprises?

    the warmth of the people

  • Booking details?

    a tip that I can give is to join the backpackers' Facebook groups because sometimes they can give you very useful tips before you start traveling

Lodging

  • I stayed at Selina's hostel which is a chain of hostels around the world, and as I've mentioned before I always use booking for all my reservations because it's easier to find good prices

  • My stay was at the hostel "Black sheep hostel Cuzco" and I can say that it is the most beautiful hostel I've been to because they have the concept of nature very clear, everything is clear and the good vibe is in the whole environment!

  • I stayed in "Big fish" Hostel which is located around 1 and a half kilometers away from the city center and It is also very close to the beach!, it was comfy and I paid around US$15 per night, is not different than the regular hostel.
