How do I renew my visa for Peru : Trip to Bolivia –  Copacabana

When entering Peru, in most cases you get a three-month visa. If you like stay longer– may be to study Spanish in Cusco or to do volunteer work in Peru – the best way to get a new visa is to leave Peru for a few days. Once you enter back into Peru, you will get a brand new visa for three more months (90 days).

There are several countries that connect with the border of Peru: Ecuador and Colombia in the North, Brazil in the East and Bolivia and Chile in the South. From Cusco – where Dos Manos Travel Peru is located, in the heart of the city – the closest and best way to leave Peru is to go to Bolivia. Here you can read How do I Renew My Visa for Peru: Trip to Bolivia- Copacabana.

Experiencing el Señor de Huanca in Peru
Tuesday September 16, 2014 - Posted by

Sunday morning 5 o’clock, way too early, but time to get up. The 14th of September for many Peruvians is a special day. En masse, people from Cusco and surroundings visit El Senor (the Lord) of Huanca. Huanca is a small town close to Cusco. Here, high up in the mountains, an apparition of Christ happened. Every year thousands participate in a pilgrimage to visit the sacred place. The hike starts Saturday night, takes 6 hours and ends up at the exact spot Christ appeared. I decided, just like many others, to not hike the whole night, but to go by bus.

Arriving to the bus station in Cusco I was amazed by the amount of buses lined up to bring us to Huanca. Even this early in the morning there was a small crowd of people getting ready to depart. As soon as one bus filled up, people moved to the next one in line. Bus by bus left Cusco. Now, the ride on itself was quite an experience. The first half hour was okay, but coming closer to Huanca it felt as if we were part of a parade.

Travelling to Peru for many is a trip of a lifetime. Miles away from home you will find yourself immersed in Peruvian culture. Many people, especially in the Andean regions and in Cusco, are dressed in traditional clothes. You will find people selling traditional Peruvian meals on the streets. There are so many things to see and do in Peru and so many things to discover. People offering handcraft articles, artesania, at the local markets of Pisac or Cusco. Others inviting you to visit their restaurants, or want to take you to their hotels. And all the beauty around you: the landscape, the scenery, and the Inca ruins full of history. A trip to Peru is a guaranteed success and you will travel back home full of amazing memories.
