The one where we don't have power

A good portion of our day, starting at 3:30AM, was spent traveling from Quito to Cusco, via Lima. Fortunately we made it without any delays or issues. Once in Cusco we taxi'd to the Collectivo station for Ollantayambo. Despite what I read online prior to the trip, it IS possible to get a collectivo (shared van) direct from Cusco to Ollanta. The …

Lares Valley Trek Part II

A travel blog entry by amdouet


... a stretch, it was so needed! Then we were off...and things didn't quite go as expected! (When do they ever?) The Lonely Road Kristin was still struggling with the altitude, so Freddy decided she would ride the horse up to our pass. For some reason, both he and Caesar were needed alongside her. Instead of bringing up the rear, though, they took off in front! Humm, not sure of this idea. Mikey took off at his pace (not quite with the horse, but far faster ...

Brave hikers on Camino Inca

A travel blog entry by kirstinf


... we sat at the top and enjoyed the vista. We arrived in Aguascalientes about 15:00, enough time to have a late lunch/early dinner and buy another small bottle of rum before catching the 16:43 first class train back to Cuzco. Santiago was perfect, letting the group walk to their own ability and at the same time looking out for the group as a whole. He called us 'brave hikers' and 'Tucan group' which in his Spanish accent had us in stitches and has stuck as labels for the group. The ...

The Sacred Valley…

A travel blog entry by kate_5

... we had one important place to stop. Jhonatan invited us to his place for a BBQ lunch, put on by his family. It was great meeting his parents, grandmother, partner, aunt I think but we were all looking forward to meeting his baby son, JJ. Little Jhonatan was too cute for words. He was adorable. The food Jhonatan's family put on was delicious. This was something they didn't have to do but they did it, made us ...

Winding Down

A travel blog entry by mbourland94

... was successful, and I felt that I saw what I had needed to see.
Then the next day came. We left Aguas Calientes, and returned on to Ollantaytambo. Here I thought we were just going to have another evening in Ollantaytambo, then moving on to Cusco the next day, then after that we would begin our numerous plane rides home. However, I forgot that our Professor had set up our class to go river rafting down the ...

    (Note: I stayed at Hostal Iskay II, not the other, original Iskay) Right by the river which makes for a nice lullaby! The staff are very friendly and speak fluent English. Nice, functioning amenities. It's in the old "Inca" part of town which makes for an almost fairy tale start and end of the day.

    The main drawback is the food. The complementary breakfast buffet was cold (including the coffee!) by the time I got to it at 8 am. Though the stuff that was supposed to be cold (cereal, cream, juice, fruit) was fine and that's really breakfast enough for me (except for the coffee part). They have coffee/tea available 24/7 but the coffee is instant and the hot water caraffe was empty when I first tried it.
