Travel Blogs from Arequipa
Our introduction to Peru was Arequipa. The beautiful architecture of the city reminded us of Southern Italian cities in Puglia. Coined the White city, not for Cocaine, but for the white stone that many of the old churches and buildings are built from.
The city is very clean, much cleaner than any place we visited in Chile and most of …
We didn’t really know what to expect from Arequipa as it was not somewhere that we had planned on visiting, however as we had decided to fly to Santiago instead of getting a coach, we needed to go there for the airport. We spent a couple of quiet days in Arequipa at a hotel with nice gardens and the weather was sunny so we were able to sit …
I've not written in a while and we have done a lot since our last blog!
We left Cusco on the 18th for the small town of Ollantaytambo in the sacred valley of the Incas to being our ascent to Machu Picchu. We had decided not to do any of the thousands of Machu Picchu tours that countless people had tried to sell to us, preferring to get …
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
