... We had to show both on all domestic flights. We rubber banded ours into our passports to keep the Immigration Card from inadvertently fluttering out.
Don't forget the water systems and microbes are very different in Peru than they are in the U.S. It's probably a wise course of action to only drink bottled beverages during your stay, and brush your teeth with bottled water. Because salad fixings will be washed ...

... slower. People lived without the constant roar of traffic and sirens, slamming of car doors, or the scream of jets overhead.Crime was almost unheard of. People didn’t feel the need to lock their doors. Neighbours were far enough away to be cherished rather than to be blocked with privacy fences.Everyone knew their neighbours’ comings and goings and everyone in the community looked out for one another. You could walk out of your ...
... our individual tsates and personal preferences, and the full kitchen and front porch area with barbeque grill went pretty much un-utilized. This sort of place would be much better suited for a family, a longer more extended stay compared to one night, or someone looking for a break from all the hustle bustle of a more traditional beach resort. Again, this all comes down to individual preferences like everything else in life.

Most groceries are quite a bit less at Walmart etc. I spotted some lamb 'shoulder spare ribs' which looked like boned out shoulder cut into strips, and was $12 for 2 lbs = NZ$7.26/kg. There is hardly any lamb on offer.

If you are a J1 Visa staff or H2B visa staff and are looking to work at this property I would avoid it at all costs. Although the accommodations for staff are cheap $50 a week you won't have much work. Most departments are only working 2 days a week. March is busier yes but you will spend huge amounts of time sitting around having nothing to do. There is hardly extra employment on the island so can't find extra money. The bosses are lazy and never to much. There is too many managers doing nothing and too many staff with no shifts. Take my advise and go somewhere else. I wish I had.
