Travel Tips for Arequipa

Rural escape within 15 mins of Arequipa

by adelinemmc

Take a taxi for a few soles to the Molino de Sabandia. This is a restored water mill in nice grounds (with a few alpaca and one vicuna).

5 Soles fee. Open 9am to 5pm. Closed Sun.

There is a small cafeteria but it's more fun to walk or catch a collectivo or taxi to the plazza in Paucarpata and try a picanteria there. Weak stomachs beware!

If you are lucky, you can see condors circling above the pre-inca terraces. We saw 7 while walking back from the mill and one very close from our picanteria! (update: I am told they may not have been condors but big birds whose name I forgot -they looked pretty condor-like to me)

It's easy to go back to Arequipa by collectivo from the plazza but do take care when walking to the centre from Av Independencia where the collectivo will drop you. Opportunists pickpockets will target you if you are not careful.

Caminata por el Misti

by K-nalla

Hiking por el misti debe ser incomparable pero a los q les falta recursos, economicos, equipo o simplemente fisico, una caminata al rededor es super. Se empieza cojiendo los autos para Chihuata (preguntar por la cancha de Palitos, y al frente se cuadran. Sol veinte) Al llegar a Chihuata simplemente apunte por el Misti, no se lo puede perder, y se puede acercar tanto como desee. Es un solo camino pa pasar la loma y un avez arriba se puede elegir la trocha a seguir. Al llegar arriba, la quebrada de la izquierda es la unica con agua y en tiempo de lluvia se puede ver una cascada bacan. Tome la trocha de la izquierda y esa te lleva alrededor de los sembradios y al regresar se puede cruzar el puente q jala el agua potable (se aprecia desde arriba clarito pq camino cojer) y este te lleva al bosque de Eucaliptos. Aqui es el sitio pa descansar, uno por el aroma de los eucaliptos y dos pq los fines de semana, gente de Arequipa baja al bosque pa hacer parrilladas asi q derepente los pueden ver si tienen suerte.

Chachani , Misti y Pichu Pichu

by elpariente

Estos nombres tan raros son los de los tres volcanes que dominan Arequipa , que se pueden ver desde muchos rincones y algunos hasta los suben a pie y dicen que las vistas son impresionantes

This odd names belong to the three volcanoes that have a view on Arequipa and you may see them from different corners and even more some people climb them and they say that there are a beautiful views

Arequipa

by Rickman77

Arequipa was one of my favorite cities in Peru. The architecture is beautiful, the resturaunts are some of the best in Peru, and there is a great mix of city/town and tourist/locals.

I didn´t get to spend much time here unfortunately. I met someone to travel with who was on a bit faster schedule than myself, so I left town a bit early with my travel partner.
But hey, you always need places to come back too.

"Monastario de Santa Catalina"

One of the highlights of Arequipa is the Santa Catalina Monastery. It´s actually not a monestary at all but a convent. Anyway, it has a long and varied history which I won`t go into but today 1/3 of it is closed off and reserved for the nuns who live there and 2/3 of it is a sort of museum.

You can spend hours walking around the complex, which is an inclosed city inside of a city (Arequipa). It has the feel of an Italian town with narrow ´streets´, which are really just walkways, flowers adorning the windows, squares and plazas, gardens, etc. The architecture is interesting, the buildings are beautiful, and it has a very peaceful feel to it all.
It´s a great place to wander, the sit and think, to have a snack, and most of all, to take a few dozen pictures.

Check out the Santa Catalina travelogues below.

"Colca Canyon"

Arequipa is the gateway to the Colca Canyon and many other outdoor adventures.

Check out the Colca Canyon Pages.
