Travel Blogs from Arequipa

The perfect small town?

A travel blog entry by sweeneygov

Arequipa is the perfect size, not too small not too big. You can walk around most of it in a day but it is so chilled out and beautiful but yet there is still plenty to do. Unlike some touristy towns that are overwhelmed with tour companies, this one has enough to offer choice but not so many that they take over the city. You can visit the Colca …

Una ciudad blanca y un cañón muy verde

A travel blog entry by vickicooper


Arequipa is known as "Ciudad Blanca" or "White City" as so many buildings here are built using the beautiful white stone produced by the local volcanoes. As a result of this it is a very elegant city which is home to one of the most beautiful plazas of all the places I have been to on this trip, although a protest against the local government …

Flight of the Condors

A travel blog entry by razza

We made a brief stop in Perus 2nd city Arequipa for a few days to chill out after Machu Picchu, we had been told it was a very nice city, and that the nearby Colca Canyon is definitely worth seeing.

We actually had our first really good dinig experience on the first night - lovely service and even better food. Well... mine was good - I …

Convents, Condors and Confessions

A travel blog entry by ditdotnonny


I am now traveling with Canadian Alice, see photos from Aguas Calientes. She decided that she liked the sound of my itinerary and booked herself a ticket to Arequipa from Cusco. I was glad of this for many reasons, not least of all was the availability of hand-holding for my first bus ride in Peru. The only route between Cusco and Arequipa, 8 hours …

White Doesn't Always Stand for Innocence (by KCT)

This is the information which is given in all …

Cute and quiet

Koala's was a little difficult to find at first but once the taxi driver opened his eyes and slowed down a little it was easy to spot on our third drive past. The hostel is quiet, clean and cheap. Very quiet, me and my friend where the only people there but that was probably due to the time of year. The staff were great, very friendly and chatty and made you feel welcome. I would have liked to stay longer.
