Night Bus from Nazca to Arequipa  (2 Answers)

Some travel books say that the night bus from Nazca to Arequipa is not safe: both with the number of road accidents and robberies and assaults. Can you please give an advise on how big a probvlem it is this year. We plan our travel in July, and taking a night bus is reasonable in terms of our root: Lima - Nazca-Arequipa-Puno-Cusco-Lima, but may be we shoold reconsider.

arequipa-puno  (4 Answers)

Hi there!
I was planning to travel from Lima straight to Puno but have been advised not to due to altitude sickness.
If I fly to Arequipa and catch the bus to Puno, will this reduce this problem dramatically? If is Go2Peru the best website to book a bus in advance?
Cheers x

safety  (2 Answers)

greetings... i'm meant to go to machu picchu and puerto maldonado in june. a friend of mine is saying a bit about safety and how unsafe it is... especially for a girl flying solo. i am not terribly worried about it but i am definitely interested in seeing what other people think. i think safety is always an issue where ever you go... although some places more than other. pls share your thoughts on this one.

Arequipa - Colca Canyon and travel to Arica  (4 Answers)

I intend to travel t Arequipa in mid-January, 2005, from the Pisco/Paracas area. Can anyone advise on overland travel? Flights seem reasonably priced, but we might miss much to see. Also, advice on accommodation in Arequipa, and on travel to Colca Canyon, then, finally, travel (20th January - no flights that day) to Arica in northern Chile. Information very much appreciated.
