  We were sad to leave Bolivia but excited to visit our last country in South America- Peru.  Our night bus to Cusco allowed us a few hours on Puno to visit the floating villages . These really are extraordinary but you do get the feeling ... Read more >

Peru in a nutshell!

PERU | Mon, 27 May 2013 | By a_johnson | Views [1522]

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 >

Peru – finally seeing some ruins (Chachapoyas, Trujillo, Santa Cruz)…

PERU | Wed, 10 Oct 2012 | By kamzam | Views [1243]

I was incredibly happy to finally get to Chachapoyas. And I was not disappointed. It’s a lovely city with white washed buildings and the star attraction of pre Inca ruins in nearby Kuelap. There are plenty of other things to do around Chachapoyas ... Read more >

I left the airport by taxi which took me to a stop where an...essentially hollowed out van with "Chosico" written on the front stopped, with promise from my taxi driver that they would take me to my destination, the ruins of Puruchuco. ... Read more >

Scream If You Wanna Go Faster!

PERU | Wed, 28 Jul 2010 | By ryanandjo | Views [3230] | Comments [2]

16 hours overnight from Cusco and we arrived in Huacachina, and quite a pleasant bus ride it was. Yes, it was full of Israeli backpackers (make your own judgment if that would be a good or bad experience) but they did come armed with a selection of ... Read more >

Peru...Partying in Arequipa and sandboarding in Huacachina

PERU | Wed, 5 Aug 2009 | By thebigtrip | Views [5272] | 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 >

Pisco to Huacachina to Nasca (por la Panamericana)

PERU | Mon, 29 Sep 2008 | By eoghancito | Views [3046] | Comments [1]

After a hearty breakfast of 4 scrambled eggs (I had Claire's eggs, she had my bread - recipe for constipation or what!) we slung on our backpacks and grabbed the smallest taxi in the world to the panamerican highway. As usual driver was very friendly ... Read more >

Boogie on down

PERU | Wed, 10 Sep 2008 | By steph_dave | Views [1081]

While in Huacachina we decided to go on a dune buggy (or as the locals pronounce it boogie)/sand boarding trip.   It was really cheap, less than £15 for the two of us and you’re out for about 2 hours.   So there we were fastened in to what ... Read more >

Taxi to Huacachina on the 3 rd and we finally get some hot weather.   Yay.   Huacachina is very cool.   It is a tiny, tiny resort and an oasis surrounded by huge sand dunes.   It’s still fairly quiet but there’s a bit more to do here and ... Read more >

Sandboarding at the Oasis Huacachina

PERU | Sun, 29 Jun 2008 | By katrinamckeever | Views [2380] | Comments [1]

Indiana Jones has a lot to answer for. After watching the new film in Cuzco, we couldn´t pass by the Nazca Lines without having a least a little glimpse of the famous scribbles and to be fair, they weren´t really up to much. The town itself was all ... Read more >
