Lima Historic Centre: Museums, Markets, Madness, and Much Much More

Lima has the highest population of any city in Peru, with 10 million inhabitants, and the Historic Centre is the most densely populated district of the city. This, combined with non-stop traffic, makes wandering the streets an experience in of itself. Often times the traffic lights and signposts appear to be taken as optional and an ‘every man for himself’ rule is applied to traffic and pedestrians alike!

7 Reasons to Visit Cusco, Peru

For the many travelers heading to Machu Picchu in Peru, Cusco acts as a home base. But this small city with big attractions is worth staying in more than a few days. As an English teacher living here for 5 months, I still have not run out of things to see and do. In this list, I try to capture the magic that is Cusco.

Things to do in Cusco

Cusco is known as the historical capital of Peru, although the current capital is the city of Lima, is declared as such in its constitution. Also is one of the most incredible cities in the world to be in one of the highest places in the world, 3 400 meters to be precise. Cusco is full of customs, myths and legends and beautiful landscapes. All worthy of an authentic postcard, so be sure packed your camera. Besides, this magical and amazing city offers natural and cultural attractions. The ancient capital of The Inca Empire was adorned by the Spaniards with palaces, squares, churches to make it today the main tourist city of Peru.

5 reasons to visit Paracas

Did you know that there is plenty of beautiful places just three-four hours away from Lima? Paracas is one of them. I love this place. Even in July and August (the coldest months in Lima), Paracas stays warm and sunny. If you don’t want to spend too much time in Lima you can rent a car and get away from the foggy and overpopulated Peruvian capital.

Train Ticket – $124, round trip

At the time that I booked, some trains had sold out, again, in low season, so in high season, this will have to be done earlier. Keep your eye out for deals at the two major rails, Peru Rail and Inca Rail. They are few and far between, but I had just missed a stellar deal that would have been $60 round trip instead of the $124 I paid, womp womp.

Enjoy the best Pisco sour in Arequipa and delicious Peruvian inspired cuisine at the Kiwi Corner

Enjoy the best Pisco sour in Arequipa and delicious Peruvian inspired cuisine at the Kiwi Corner If someone had told me that a Kiwi/Peruvian fusion bar existed in one of Peru’s largest city, I would have thought that interesting. If someone had told me that this bar would also make the best Pisco sours you have ever tasted I would have been well, cynical. But they do, it’s true. It doesn’t stop with just your classic Pisco Sour either. The Maracuya or Fresa is delightful, while the Lucuma sour is a twist on the classic with a typical fruit from these parts (it tastes like a delicious caramel smoothy!). Anywho I feel like you could throw almost any flavour at the Kiwi bartenders and be pleasantly surprised. My recommendation? Try the Chincharron Tacos for dinner with a classic Pisco Sour…just to start! Kiwi or not, you’re bound to feel welcome, enjoy a marvellous taste of food and bevvys and leave with a smile on the dial. CHHUR.

Poro Poro

In the town of Poro Poro, is possibly Peru’s most understated archaeological site, whilst in ‘El Pulpito’ (the pulpit) a sculptured granite boulder in the surrounding area the has been known and observed for years, more recent excavations have discovered a courtyard like complex buried underground for years. Our guide, a forest park ranger explained that the key indicator to the archaeologist that something lay underneath was the worked granite rocks protruding out of the ground. After wondering around the small complex that’s been unearthed, you’ll soon realise that the entire area is full of similar human-altered granite stones, protruding out of the ground. There’s so much culture in Peru, that in PorPororo you can quite literally fall over it. If the site ever secures the appropriate funding, Peru could have another amazing archaeological complex to rival the likes of Kuelep in Chachapoyas, or Machu Pichu in Cuzco, fundamentally changing the community around forever.

A Quick Guide to Machu Picchu

I have to say, I went for this one unprepared. I was going to Brazil for summer break and my mom wanted a mother/daughter bonding trip. Unfortunately, it was less than a week after my finals and I didn’t have time to read a single guide, just some general stuff I found on the internet. And I’m usually the kind of person who buys 3 different guides, reads them all and plans every second of the trip. Not that I follow my own plans that often, but I do enjoy the planning and the security that really knowing about stuff allows you. I visited 3 places in Peru. Lima, Cuzco and Machu Picchu. It was a wonderful trip and I loved all 3 places, but I’m focusing on Machu Picchu right now because it’s the one people are most interested in, by far.

Uros Islands, Titicaca: A Peaceful Idyll

¨Come to my island, to have dinner with my family¨? invites me Felix, an old native Uro Indian, spending his days in the port of Puno, Peru. What a success! Or is such hospitality usual among the Indians? At the port, Felix helps friends to attract people on lake tours.  His outgoing character fits the busy port more than the quiet isolation of manmade Islas de los Uros. Natives live there almost the same way as their ancestors did, and don’t seem to prioritize material values, simply because not much of them can be of use there. At least señor Felix really doesn´t seem to care about money, as he invites me to come and even stay some days for free if I wish. At first skeptical, but later convinced, that there´s his wife, children, even grandchildren also waiting for us, I happily agree.

Colca Canyon, Peru: Trekking in the second deepest Canyon in the world

The trekking to which I’m referring to is one of the most spectacular of the entire world: the Colca Canyon, located in the South of Peru, is the second deepest Canyon in the world. Most of the people could think that the first, the deepest at all, is the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Well, actually this is the third on the ranking. Both the first (Cotahuasi Canyon) and the second (Colca) are located in Peru, so it would be really a shame to NOT experience one of this trekking if you’re travelling across this country.

48 Hours in Lima, Peru

2 days in Lima, Peru Lima is the capital of Peru. Most people when they think of Lima, think of it as a city that one must pass in order to arrive to the more desirable locations such as Cusco and Machu Picchu. Some don’t even leave the airport. But to miss this capital, which contains more that 30% of the Peruvian nation, is a big mistake. From culture, to food, to great nature views, Lima has much to offer.To give a small taste of what this city has to offer I explain how I chose to spend 2 days in Lima.

Climate and weather

As you probably know Lima is the capital and the largest city of Peru. What you probably don’t know is that you can freely leave your umbrella at home while packing your suitcase for the trip. You will never need to use an umbrella in Lima, because it never rains here! The reason for this is the fact that Lima is basically a desert. One more thing that you aren’t likely to see in the capital of Peru are stars at night and bright blue sky at day. The sky most part of the year looks pretty gray as if it were overcast with clouds, especially in winter months when there’s less sunshine. This can be explained by the coastal location of the city and closeness to the Andean mountain ridge, which doesn’t let the humid air masses from the Pacific ocean move further towards the center of the country, thus causing them to be constantly “hanging” over the city. One more thing that you might be surprised to find out in Lima is the absence of seasons, which means that the streets look exactly the same all the days of a year. The only way winter is different from summer is by some insignificant drop of temperature, so it’s never too hot or too cold in Lima, which means you don’t need to bother taking with you any fur coats on your winter trip to Peru, some jacket and a couple of sweaters will be just fine. Mind that this is true only for Lima, climate and weather vary greatly throughout the country and you have to prepare for a trip to each particular zone differently.

Peru

Llamas and alpacas hanging out by the side of the road on the way to Cusco Peru Peru is an amazing country full of beautiful and varied landscapes, a wonderful culture, delicious food and let us not forget pisco sours!! My tour started in Lima, with stops in Paracas, Nazca, Arequipa, and Cusco before reaching the highlight of the trip, the hike from Ollantaytambo along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. This was what I’d been waiting for. This was half the reason I’d chosen Peru to take my South American travel virginity.

First Impression on Lima

I had quite a hard time telling everyone I’m going to Peru. My parents were freaking out that it was dangerous and everyone got either jealous or really worried about me. I did not pay any attention to them and proceeded planning my trips. It was my first trip to South America and when they were all so concerned, I have to admit it got me a little worried too…

Hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu is one of the world’s top travel destinations, and it’s easy to understand why. The ancient Incan city is an example of the hard work, dedication, impressive architecture and advance engineering of the Incan people, giving it the well-deserved title of one of the 7 new wonders of the world. No trip to Peru would be complete without visiting Machu Picchu, but in order to fully appreciate the vast landscapes of the Andean mountains and the ingenuity of one of the most famous ancient civilisations, you have to hike the Inca Trail to get there.

Ica: Peru

When people think of Peru, I can assure you that the first thing someone will think of is Machu Picchu. But what if I told you that there was so much more to the country than that? If you are a backpacker looking for adventure, you’ve come to the right place. The little district of Ica in Peru has everything all thrill-seekers need and can be fully experienced in the short space of a weekend. From deserts dunes to sea lions, the two towns that compose this district, Paracas on the coast and Huacachina the desert oasis town, although opposites, generate an incredible duality.
