A travel blog entry by charlottefarrer


Finally got to the hostel last night after a confusion with the taxi that was supposed to be sent for me. Met some crazy Canadians and Australians last night that are really nice and have been giving me travelling advice and tips. Off to the beach today I think as its almost 30 degrees out here and I seriously need to catch a tan! Day 2 : Very …

As we got there, we took back our thoughts as it was actually in a nice part of the city overlooking …

Hitting Lima Hard for the Last Time

A travel blog entry by guy.everton

After an easy flight we were back in Lima and ready for our final weekend. Unfortunately, James had a fever, which we think was caused by a fire ant bite.

    Accommodations are simple but clean and comfortable. There are several unisex bathrooms with showers, a bar, a restaurant, ping pong and pool tables, and a travel agent. We can see the ocean from the front door. I would recommend to anyone looking for a cheap place to stay and meet other people.
