Photos: The week I turned 34 in Peru ;-)

PERU | Mon, 25 May 2015 | By finally | Photo Gallery

Wednesday we took a 11h overnight bus from Cuzco to Arequipa. Buses are much better in Latin America than in North America, nothing compared to Greyhound. There are 2 types of overnight buses: " semi cama" with a 160 degree inclination seat and "cama" ... Read more >

Photos: Trekking Southern Peru

PERU | Sat, 22 Jun 2013 | By flashfury | Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

Prepare: I purchased my first camera in 2008, ahead of my adventure to Europe. Looking back it’s where my love for travel and photography sprouted. In 2009 I added to my collection with a DSLR in time for my trip to Central America. Frame: Shortly ... Read more >

Peru in a nutshell!

PERU | Mon, 27 May 2013 | By a_johnson | Views [1570]

Seeing as I've travelled through the Andean countries quite quickly, I thought it would be better to write one blog for Peru and sum it up in a nutshell but a big enough nutshell so you can all still share my experiences with envy! My journey to Peru ... Read more >

The world’s deepest canyon and the road to Machu Picchu (Arequipa, Colca Canyon, Cuzco, Salkantay)

PERU | Fri, 26 Oct 2012 | By kamzam | Views [1507]

 I didn’t do justice to Arequipa. I only stayed there for one night but I really like the city. It was themost charming place I’ve seen since Cuenca. For me however it was a launching pod to Colca Canyon. In Arequipa I reunited with ... Read more >

The Rest of Peru

PERU | Wed, 4 Aug 2010 | By lol | Views [1322]

I first visited Peru five years ago, and have longed to come back ever since. Back then I only visited the Titicaca Lake and trekked the so called Inca trail from Cusco to Machu Piccu, but I knew there was more to Peru. And so, finally, I got to ... Read more >

PERU | Tue, 13 Jul 2010 | By ryanandjo | Views [3282] | Comments [1]

After some shady bus dealings by the bus company for our journey between Bolivia and Peru we arrived in our first Peruvian destination of Arequipa where our first attraction was the Museo Santuarios Andinos, to visit another of the ‘ice’ children.... Read more >

Peru...Partying in Arequipa and sandboarding in Huacachina

PERU | Wed, 5 Aug 2009 | By thebigtrip | Views [5359] | Comments [7]

This entry is written by Laura and not Stephen, for a change! After another bus breakdown and a very long bus ride we arrived in the city of Arequipa from Cusco. We got a taxi from the bus station to our hostel and as has been the case with so many ... Read more >

Regresando a Perú

PERU | Wed, 4 Mar 2009 | By k-lero | Views [3597] | Comments [5]

Se acabó Bolivia, llegué a Perú. Son países en muchos aspectos similares pero a su vez diferentes. Se nota en la gente, más abierta, se nota en la altura -Bolivia es más homogéneo, más altiplánico-, se nota en los precios... Llevo tiempo sin actualizar ... Read more >

Arequipa to Cusco

PERU | Mon, 6 Oct 2008 | By eoghancito | Views [1541]

We woke up with terrible hangovers following the Pisco Sour fuelled excesses of the previous night. I suppose after 2 weeks of relative good behaviour we needed to blow some steam off. But it still felt horrible. We stumbled to a cafe to have a sandwich and ... Read more >

Colca Canyon Trekking - Day 3

PERU | Fri, 3 Oct 2008 | By eoghancito | Views [1883]

Alarm at 4.30 this morning, ready for the fional 1200m ascent back to Cabanaconde. We had decided to leave earlier so as to minimise the amount of climbing we would have to do in the sun. It was still dark and prety chilly as we set off, our legs grumbling ... Read more >

Arequipa is very pretty.   It’s a city surrounded by mountains and a volcano.   One of the mountains is over 5000m and the other is over 6000m, it has snow on the top.   Lots of the buildings are made out of a white volcanic stone.   The whole ... Read more >

Valley deep mountain too high in Arequipa

PERU | Sun, 22 Jun 2008 | By katrinamckeever | Views [1391]

Arequipa is a lovely little city, ringed by volcanoes and built out of white sandstone rocks, a nice gentle introduction to tourist heavy southern Peru. We headed there on my insistence as I wanted to trek in the Colca Canyon nearby. And after getting ... Read more >
