Day 6 Rafting Chile Rio and bus to Puno
After feeling like my time in Puno was complete, I hopped an early bus to Arequipa to begin my solo adventure (I considered going to Boliva but they charge us American folks a whopping $135.00 plus the hassle of crazy paper work to get in... no Copacabana for me. Apparently that's what we do to Bolivians trying to visit the US). Ellen and I said …
We took the bus from Tacna to Arequipa because there was no direct buses from Tacna to Cusco. The plan was to actually jump straight on a connecting bus to Cusco once we arrived in Arequipa but Ryan was not feeling well due to the altitude when we arrived in Arequipa. We think we must have gone quite high on the bus because Arequipa is not that …
I loved Arequipa, and not just because it had a Starbucks. It's a clean, beautiful city with great weather, a plethora of things to see, fantastic restaurants and riveting museums.

TravelPod Member ReviewsCasa de Avila - Tourist Hotel Arequipa
Comfort and privacy but an ascending cost from 30 soles to 45 soles over the course of my stay for a private room - I had originally booked a dorm bed on their website but they do not actually have a dorm. Also disappointed, after two weeks stay, to be told I had to leave because there was no room for me. However, the staff were the friendliest I have encountered for a long time, especially Raquel who was delightful. Very relaxed place with big garden but not so great for meeting people if you are a solo traveller. Also offers Spanish lessons
