          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.

It was only 9.30am, and yet the daily catch had all but sold out - and all that was left were scraps and hungry seabirds, all perched expectantly on the stainless steel counters, waiting for the sellers to throw them the leftovers. Here we saw brightly coloured Peruvian plovers, their red beaks startlingly bright against the grey sky. As we wandered through the market, we found ourselves greeted by 30 or so pelicans, their ...

We thoroughly enjoyed today! Cesar drove us home and uncle Picho came for the ride. We said ...

Peruvians with long braids and straw hats were hawking parasols to the wilting sightseers, calling 'sombrilla, sombrilla' over and over again in cracked, thirsty voices. A Spanish call to prayer boomed from the church, competing with the jaunty national songs played by the martial band. Arturo and I laughed, a private joke about the power of man grappling with the power of the church. Leaving the Plaza, we went ...

We were super dusty (all dirt/gravel roads) so after the tour, we went back to the hostel and showered and headed back to downtown Miraflores for the day. We found this sandwich shop that was fantastic. They also made fresh squeezed juices. We each got a sandwich and I got water and mike a juice. For a whopping $15! Mike got a typical sandwich in Lima which is a pork sandwich. It's slicked pork, with the skin ...
