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.

Do Not stay in this hotel if you want to sleep!

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.

... for us to have breakfast at a nearby hotel while we waited for the city to wake up so that we could do our sightseeing tour. It was here that some of the tensions that had been brewing amongst the group came to a head.

... responsible for getting the Huaca recognized as a site of great archaeological significance, and keeping it that way. Just looking at the high rise apartments that surround the Huaca gives you a good idea of the battles she must have had over the years to protect it and continue the work there. Originally of course, the site was much, much bigger than it is now but demolishing the buildings surrounding it would be an impossibility, so for now they focus their efforts on the ...

... and you are placing complete reliance on the driver (apparently you only live once so why not right?). It was loads of fun and the driver made a few stops on top of the sand dunes where we could give sand boarding a go. You can get up a bit of speed and it was great fun - it took awhile to get all the sand out of our clothes afterwards! We then continued on to Nazca passing through amazing mountains in the ...

... board luggage" allowance. Women were carrying what seemed to be another suitcase, a huge handbag and a bag filled with goods. Before boarding though each and every bag was weighed and if it exceeded the 8kg limit or if they had more than 1 bag they were asked to pay €80 at the door. The worst we saw was a woman who had 4 bags (suitcase, plastic bag, laptop bag and handbag) who's suitcase alone weighed 13kg. It's sad ...

Sorry for the late post onto this blog, but the past few days I have struggled to even get out of bed let alone write a blog entry! Bloody altitude sickness!

Right....so where to start. We boarded our flight from London Heathrow after getting up at 4am to catch the bus to our terminal. We had maybe managed to sleep for 2 hours max....it was a massive case of being way too excited to all finally be together and embark on ...
