          Marco was quite simply the best host I had during my time in Peru - Very helpful with everything, sharing his knowledge of the city, loaning bus cards, mixing drinks and making his guests feel so comfortable. The apartment has been renovated to hotel standard, but still feels like home. Only minor gripe is the location, which is not central (about 6 blocks to nearest metrobus station, bit less to local busses), but this can also be a good thing for your sleep: the area is pretty quiet.

          A travel blog entry by mbarb57 on Mar 04, 2016

          This morning was about getting our bearings and deciding what to do first. The owner of the hostel is incredibly informative. Besides getting a bus card to load and use for the metro, he printed maps of local eateries and stores and of the historic downtown. He wrote out instructions for the metro and which stops to watch for. First in our agenda …

          We killed some more time by walking around the shops, waiting for lunch time. Tony Roma's had ocean view tables (the fog was lifting) and special lunchtime menu.

          Maria had a nap in the afternoon while David did some work on the blog. We had pre-arranged ...

By night there's music from a stage in the main square. Some fireworks. Got to see a traditional music & dance show one of the nights. Did one of those free walking tours. Some guy who had just arrived that day, passed out on the street. Guess the altitude and heat got to him. That's all for now! Frank ...

          Recall that because we are south of the equator, Peru is heading into their winter, and months of cold, damp weather from the humidity lie ahead.

          ... straight out for some ceviche as a late lunch/snack - yum! Definitely a good start. After a short stroll along the clifftops of the coast, we then ended up having a pretty nice Italian (yes it feels odd whist in Peru but we really craved some pasta) for dinner, so all in all it was a good first evening!

          The next day we set off to join the free walking tour, but ended up binning it off not long in as we were hungry and decided to do our own walking ...
