Durante mi larga estancia en Perú, he estado leyendo sobre la capital boliviana La Paz, en la Guía de Viajes Lonely Planet.

Según esta guía, La Paz es una ciudad insegura. Se dice que los criminales suelen trabajar junto con la policía y te dice cómo actuar cuando estas secuestrado. Así que yo estaba un poco asustada y había pospuesto mi viaje a La Paz y terminé viviendo en Cusco durante varios meses

Pero ahora, después de una increíble excursión al lago Titicaca y las islas, pensamos que el tiempo había llegado. Así que nos dirigimos a La Paz. Salimos de Copacabana, la pequeña ciudad en la frontera de Perú / Bolivia, en autobús se tarda alrededor de 7 horas para llegar a La Paz. (more…)

Getting Around Cusco:  A Local Transportation Guide

Until someone invents tele-transportation, getting from point A to point B will remain the aggravation of our daily schedule. You don’t have to let local transportation be the drag of your day, however, while traveling abroad in Cusco, Peru. Navigating the streets of Cusco can be a fun adventure if you know how to stay safe and be aware of your surroundings.

Seeing the Imperial City from the perspective of a local Peruvian on a city bus gives you glimpses of the real Cusco you would never catch from the sight-seeing tour buses. Check out the options below to figure out what local forms of transportation will give you your best in-siders view of Cusco. Getting Around Cusco: local transportation Guide.

During my long stay in Peru, I’d been reading about the Bolivian Capital La Paz in the Lonely Planet Travel Guide.

According to this guide, La Paz is an unsafe city. It says that criminals often work together with the police and it tells you how to act when being kidnapped. So I was a bit scared and had proponed my trip to La Paz and ended up living in Cusco for several months.

But now, after an amazing tour to Lake Titicaca and the islands, we thought the time was there. So we headed to La Paz. By bus from Copacabana, the small city where you arrive soon after you’ve crossed the Peruvian/ Bolivian border, it takes about 7 hours to get to La Paz. (more…)

De kleurrijke markten en bijzondere ruïnes van Pisac.
December 10, 2014 - Posted by

Pisac is a small town in the Sacred Valley and is famous for its colorful Sunday market. When you are in Cusco, I highly recommend you visit Pisac. There are a few ways to get to Pisac.  You can either book a private tour (a bit pricy) or you can take a Tour to the Sacred Valley of the Incas. On this tour you will

visit all the highlights of this famous Valley, including Pisac, but also Ollantaytambo, Chincheros and Urubamba.  You will have a guide, a bus and you will conveniently visit many tourist sites on one single day.

However, you can also go to Pisac by yourself, on a local bus. This takes more time but it is a really nice experience.

That’s what we did! We went to Pisac on a Sunday, early in the morning. (more…)

Alternativa popular al Camino Inca: Camino Inca por la selva
December 04, 2014 - Posted by

Ir a Perú por lo general implica una visita al lugar número 1 y más destacado del país: la increíble ciudadela Inca de Machu Picchu y la más famosa manera de llegar es por el Camino Inca. Si deseas hacer el Camino Inca, es necesario reservar con tiempo, por lo general entre dos a cuatro meses antes! Sin embargo hay una gran y popular alternativa al Camino Inca es el Inca Jungle Trek de cuatro días . Esta caminata no sólo implica ir de excursión en bicicleta, sino también tienes la opción de incluir rafting y tirolesa. Se empieza en el punto más alto que es 4.350 metros, después se desciende a la tierra calurosa de la selva.
