Several years ago (10 years more or less) I have contacted a VT member in Lima.
She helped me organising an apèro and dinner for friends of mine traveling in Peru for their honeymoon at the Rosa Nautica.
I would like to get back in touch with this VT member in Lima if possible, to thank her personally, as I will be traveling to Lima for my first time next week.
Hope to be lucky enough :-)
Hello, Has anyone ever been to these places in Peru; Lomas de Lachay National Park, Huacachinan desert oasis, and Canta-Obrajillo? I have a week to spend outside of Lime and I would like to know if you have any suggestions? We like the outdoors and ideally we would like to go hiking.
Hi, Has anyone been to Chosica, about an 1 hour an 1/2 north of Lima? If so what was your experience? Is the hiking good? Also, does anyone have suggestions as to activities to do close to Lima? I will be there in January.
Hi There, I will arrive at Lima Airport by international flight in the morning and will transit to Cuzco. Just wonder how much time do I need to allow me to get through the custom and check into the domestic flight. It will be great if I can have an estimation before I book the internal flight to Cuzco.
This will be my first trip to Peru, and I will be visiting my husband's siblings, and I was thinking of buying some gifts from USA, but I don't know what products or candies I can bring that it's not sold in Peru....like M&M's, Doritos, Cheetos for example!

Does anyone have a hotel recommendation based on personal experience in the past year? I am looking for something mid-priced in the Miraflores district. Nothing fancy; simple is fine; clean, secure, and relatively quiet. We will be 3 adults and need 1 or 2 rooms depending on what's available. We will be staying at the beginning of August.
Thanks for the recommenations.
I was wondering if Lima is safe to tour on ones own or is it advisable to either hire out a guide or to go with a tour group. I am thinking about 2-3 days before moving on to my next locale.
We'll be in Lima on a 12-hour layover and we plan to go around on our own. I've read that there a lot of museums in town but if we had time to visit just one, which would it be?
Thanks for any replies.
Does anyone know FOR CERTAIN the opening hours of the San Pedro Church in the Centro Historico? I don't mean obtaining the info off the internet 'cos all sites give different hours - hence my question of knowing FOR CERTAIN.
Anyone heard or used a tour operator named Kapachi Peru - any recommendations, looking at joining a small group tour to Machu Picchu, but can not seem to find any information except their web site.

I am wondering, although I have heard how safe it is in Miraflores, if it truly is advisable to not use my DSLR camera openly while walking around this district. I really would like to be able to take decent pictures of the views, etc. I do have a little pocket point and shoot that takes ok pictures...is this what I should use instead for my own safety and possibility of being robbed?

Hello! Can anyone recommend any wine bars in Lima? I'm not looking for nightclubs or bars with DJs and a total scene; I'm looking specifically for a low-key environment where one can go to enjoy a glass of wine or two before or after dinner. Thanks in advance.

We would like to explore Lima/Minaflores for about 3 days. One day will be a day trip to Nazca. WE have been told to stay in Minaflores instead of Lima to visit more sites etc.

I’m travelling to Peru, arriving in Lima at 05.30 on a Wednesday morning.
Can anyone tell me what is the likelihood of me being able to purchase a plane ticket to Iquitos upon my arrival to Lima Airport?
Also, I’m not sure of the exact date that I’ll be leaving Iquitos. How much more expensive would it be for me to purchase 2 separate one-way tickets as opposed to a single return ticket?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Kay and I want to thank everyone for responding to our original questions. Your advice, insight and the information provided is very much appreciated. Our trip is a tour that includes hotels, transportation between cities and historic sites like Machu Picchu. However, there is free time to do some exploring on our own. Again, your suggestions are appreciated for this trip and hopefully for future trips to Peru.

In September 2012 we will take our first trip, a tour, to Peru. We will spend four nights in Lima (Hotel Antigua Miraflores), two nights in Urubamba (San Agustin Urubamba Hotel), two nights in Cuzco (San Agustin International), and two nights in Puno (Hotel Royal Inn Puno). We would appreciate any information on reasonably priced and good restaurants in the area of these hotels. Also, what mode of transportation is recommended if there is some distance to travel? Any other information or ideas for places to see would be appreciated. We want to thank everyone responding to our questions.

Hello! A friend and I will be arriving into Lima from Cuzco around 3pm. Niether of our flights leave for the U.S. until 11:45pm that same day. So, I am wondering if we can secure our luggage somewhere at the airport (lockers?) and then head into town for a few hours via taxi or bus? Is there anything reasonably close that we could go do/explore in our tiny little window of time?
