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
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.
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
just what is necessary
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.
the warmth of the people
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
