Riches and culture of Lima

A travel blog entry by sueandludi


Up early and out by taxi from Urubamba to Cusco airport, to be there a couple of hours ahead of the flight, only to find it has been delayed by an hour and a half. Not a problem. More cards, chic-lit, people-watching.

And into Lima mid-afternoon, with a taxi booked to get us to the Barranco Backpackers hostel. Barranco is a district of …

Lima? Been

A travel blog entry by andrewjerome


We both slept surprisingly well considering we had to use ear plugs and wake up so early, although somehow an irritating mosquito that probably followed us down from the Iguazu area kept buzzing around my ear too.

It turns out that being on a tour is great, and very busy, so I'll try and sum up what we've been up to using an exciting new feature - underlined headings. Apologies, but this is really long - if you can't be bothered, then just …

A Bohemian Lifestyle

A travel blog entry by thepilgrimage

    Loved my stay here. The owner is a real champ. Good size dorms with lovely rooms, WIFI, breakfast. Safe area.
    It's a bit pricier than other backpackers in Lima but I think it was definately worth it.
