supplemental oxygen in Cusco

by shaunessy

Our family will be in Cusco and the Sacred Valley region for the week of Aug 4 - Aug 11. My husband has cystic fibrosis and a hard time breathing with exertion and high altitude. As you can imagine, he's worried about being able to enjoy his time in Cusco!

His doctors have written him a prescription for supplemental oxygen. Does anyone know the best way to get portable oxygen in Cusco? Is it readily available or do we need to contact someone ahead of time to make arrangements? He'd like something portable enough to be able to tour the local ruins and bring on and off buses.

thanks for any ideas!

Your best bet is to contact the hotel where you'll be staying for portable oxygen tanks. Some hotels provide the service to their clients.

Hi
Is travel to Cuzco really a good idea?Given the problems your husband will have, possibly life threatening, its a bit silly to say the least. There is plenty to see and do a lower altitudes...You should reconsider this trip.

Hi Shaunessy,

I was looking for oxygen and found your question. We will succeed. One of your answers was just stupid. It reminds of the time went to play tennis when you were 6 months old. You cried a bit and wanted to be held. So I picked you up in one arm and played tennis with the other. A worried by-passer claimed that I could drop you. OK!? That could happen in the bath tub, so don{t give the kid a bath?! It seems that the answer is..... 'Life is inverably unsafe, acutally terminal in all cases. It is to be lived!!'

Love you,
Dad

Travel Tips for Cusco

The sun has set, so look up

by Amareyui

There are not alot of lights on the streets of Ollantaytambo, and the Sacred Valley in general. Once it gets dark, look up toward the sky, and you will be amazed at all the stars on the sky. It was 7:00 pm, and I was walking to the train station in Ollantaytambo. The path was dark, and I had to walk slowly. Wind was gusing through, causing the branches to sway violenty. I looked up, and couldnt help but stopped and widen my eyes. There was the Milky Way, spilling all over the sky.
My regret about this is that I couldnt take a picture of it. Next time, when I go to a place 4000m above sea level again, I will surly bring a camera that's capable of capturing this sight.

Alternative Inca Trail Treks

by SMAPP

Hiking on the Inca Trail in Peru is perhaps the most incredible active travel experience in the world. What you might not realize is there is more than one Inca Trail: you can hike the well-worn stones of the Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu…take a lodge-based high-altitude trek with stunning views of Ausangate, or enjoy an off-the-beaten-path tour among the villages of the Lares region.

Inca Trail Hiking with Zephyr Adventures operates their Peru trips in conjunction with an excellent Cusco-based company, which means that while you get the benefit of booking with Americans who have traveled to Peru and have actually hiked the trekking routes, you also receive the guidance and expertise of oustanding local Peruvian guides who have lived and played on these trails their entire lives. Once you book your trek Zephyr Adventures sends you a detailed packing list.

Perhaps the most important thing to remember when packing for your trek on the Inca Trail is that you will not need as much “stuff” as you think. Read more: http://incatrailhiking.com/blog/2010/04/15/a-packing-list-for-the-inca-trail/

Chincheros

by darthmilmo

Chinchero has a lovely church build on top of an Inca temple. The stonework on the site next to the church is amazing. One wonders how the with such perfection using massive stones. After all, they used gravity, not concrete, to hold their buildings together. What's even more amazing is the perfect cut in Imperial Inca rock buildings.

(under one hour by local bus)

Long Distance Buses

by darthmilmo

There are plenty of buses to Cusco from all over Peru as well as a few from Bolivia. The cost per hour travel is about $1 USD, however, international and luxury buses cost extra. Traveling by bus is one of the best way to experience Peru: it is easy, affordable, and reliable (in most cases...hehehe).

Jungle Trip (Look at my Sepahua page for details, 2 days to reach the jungle by local bus and/or boat)

Arequipa (10 hours, overnight bus)

Puno (Lake Titikaka, about 8 hours, overnight bus)

If Marquez only knew...

by AR76 about Macondo

A cafe/restaurant that is unique indeed! Although named after Gabriel Garcia Marquez' best-selling novel Cien Anos de Soledad (One Hundred Years of Solitude), loneliness is the last thing you'll experience here. The friendly staff and the atmosphere make you feel at home the minute you enter this brightly decorated place.
