4 dingen die ik NIET zo leuk vond aan de Salkantay trek naar Machu Picchu.

De klassieke Inca trail naar het oude Inca Citadel Machu Picchu is verruit één van de meest favoriete tochten van het moment. Maar er worden helaas slechts 500 mensen per dag toegelaten inclusief gidsen, koks en dragers. Dit betekent dat deze populaire tocht in Peru snel is uitverkocht. Als je dus de Inca trail wilt doen in het hoogseizoen moet je soms wel 3 tot 4 maanden van te voren boeken!

Gelukkig zijn er genoeg leuke alternatieven. Maak je dus geen zorgen als de Inca trail al uitverkocht is. Er zijn genoeg andere mogelijkheden om een mooie tocht naar de beroemde ruïnes te maken. Dit is wat mij ook overkwam en daarom heb toen de Salkantay Trek geboekt. (more…)

Las cuatro cosas que NO me han gustado del Salkantay Trek a Machu Picchu

El camino Inca a la Antigua ciudadela de Machupicchu es; una de las caminatas más favoritas de Latino America. Desafortunadamente solo se permite el acceso de 500 personas por día incluyendo guías, cocineros y porteadores. Esto significa que la caminata más popular de Peru se agote muy rápido.

Si usted desea hacer el Camino Inca en Temporada Alta, tiene que reservar 3 o incluso 4 meses antes de…

Afortunadamente hay muchas buenas alternativas! Así que no se preocupe cuando el camino inca este ya agotado. Hay muchas otras oportunidades para hacer una hermosa caminata a las famosas ruinas. Esto es en realidad lo que me paso a mí y por eso reserve el Salkantay trek. (more…)

4 Things I did NOT like about the Salkantay Trek Machu Picchu

The Inca Trail to the old Inca Citadel Machu Picchu is by far, one of the most favorite treks of the content. Unfortunately, only 500 people are allowed per day, including guides, cooks, and porters. This means that the popular trek in Peru gets sold out very quickly. If you want to do the Inca Trail in high season, you might have to book it 3 or even 4 months ahead!

Fortunately, there are many other Machu Pichu Hike tours! So don’t worry when the Inca Trail is already sold out. There are many other opportunities to do a Machu Picchu hiking to the famous ruins. This is actually what happened to me and that’s why I booked the Salkantay Trek. (more…)

Trips in the Surroundings of Cusco Visit the Hot Springs in Santa Teresa

Visiting the Hot Springs in Santa Teresa

Cusco is surrounded by beautiful sceneries; with the Sacred Valley, Inca ruins in Ollantaytambo, Pisac, and the highlight of it all: Machu Picchu. These places are probably all on your list of places to visit during your travels in Peru. However, if you have been there and you want to get out of the city and do something else, a weekend trip to Santa Teresa might be a nice option.

Santa Teresa is a village, located in the jungle on the Northwest side of Cusco. The ride is about 4.5 hours to the very small village, Santa Marina (there are no banks or ATM here, so bring enough cash money), plus 1 hour more from Santa Marina to Santa Teresa. It is located in the jungle, thus explaining why the climate is very different from Cusco. It is warmer and more humid. April to October are the driest and best months to visit the Peruvian jungle regions because there is less rain and less mosquitoes. However, the temperature can still drop to 13°C at night.
