      Hotel is clean and tidy, all in good working order with WiFi and computers to use included. Breakfast is good and reception pleasant and helpful. Would recommend as a good place to stay for the first couple of nights.

      We were booked into this hotel with our small tour and not one of us were happy with it. Rooms are not sound proof, no tissues, no drinking water, no clock, no where to put your luggage, and as a lot of rooms are inward looking over courtyard where dining room opens from, as groups leave at all times of the night, you are constantly woken.Staff are not friendly and all round this is the worst hotel we have ever stayed in.

      Do you see a shopping center? Do you see acres of parking lots? Do you see anything other than a beautiful park? Because all the parking is below the park, several levels of it - those towers are probably air shafts for the parking garage - and the shopping center is below the park level, so ...

The Cathedral is the building with the green doors.  Next was dinner at an amazing restaurant (more to be shared by Sal).  Since we had learnt our lesson with the cabs the night before.. We didn't give them the home address.. We simply gave them the Avenue name (Avenue 28 de Julio) and then asked the cab driver to ...

      ... time on the outskirts of the town checking out some interesting geological formations (Torre Torre) and then visiting a nice park called 'Wanka park'. Excellent. I will leave the pictures to tell that story and simply say that the town had lots of friendly people and we enjoyed trying our first 'chifa' there which can be found all over Ecuador and Peru and is essentially Chinese food with a South American twist. It's pretty good and v.cheap! Kate did have a slightly ...

      ... headed to Moviltours for a direct bus to Lima at 10am. Apart from being direct, it had the advantage of stopping quite close to the historical centre where I wanted to stay.

      The route to Lima, much of it along the coast, was desert broken by occasional oases and the coastal views were good on the serpent highway approaching the city.

      Booked my ticket out in a nearby terminal for Thursday – 2 nights should be enough in a city of this size with this ...

      On Saturday we joined a three hour walking tour through the streets of Miraflores. That night we walked to a water park called Parque de los Aguas which had a three dimensional water show that night. The point of the park is to demonstrate how valuable water is to the city. Lima is the second biggest city in the ...
