Cycling and using a PC

by alanmalarkey

I am going to Peru for 2 months commencing October and have arranged a language school and a volunteer project for the 2nd month. I have 2 questions:

1. I am a keen cyclist and do not want to lose my fitness during the stay. last year I took my mountain bike to Panajachel, Guatemala and this was fine but it proved to be quite expensive. This year I aim to either buy or hire a cycle for the duration and hopefully find a group with whom to ride. Any comments or ideas on this would be appreciated.

2. I am in a quandary about whether to take a lap top. I realise there are plenty of internet cafes but ideally I would like to hook into wireless connection. Is this achievable?

thanks

2. Bring your laptop; most of the cafes have wi-fi connections, if not, bring your RJ45 cable and plug it to a regular internet cabin. This cabins charge 2 soles per hour=USD0.70 per hour.

You can have wireless connection only in some hotels and you can practice cycling at the cycling assocation (it is very cheap).

If you have any question, send it to me (i am peruvian)

Travel Tips for Cusco

Inca Terraces Still Dot Peru's Sacred Valley

by AKtravelers

All around the Sacred Valley of Peru, you can still see terraces built during Inca times. Since these terraces continued to be useful after the fall of the Inca Empire in that they allowed cultivation of the steep Andean hillsides and prevented erosion, they have been maintained by the locals for centuries.

High heels and streets of Cuzco don't mix well...

by bicycle_girl

I made the mistake to bring my city shoes (1.5 inch heel) with me as only shoes other than my hiking boots. I regretted it. The streets are made of bumpy stones in the touristy area so you have to watch yourself every time you cross them. Then the sidewalks can be narrow and sometimes there are steps when you expect it the least. Make yourself a favor and leave your stylettos at home! By the way, the stone shown on the picture is really slippery, be careful!

Sacred Valley - Scenery

by Amareyui

A good option is to take some time to get out to the valley and relish in the unspoiled charm it has to offer.
Often you are the only one who doesn't belong there, which adds to the excitement.
A day spend in the valley also provides a chance to glimpse at the life styles of the Quechua people.
Of course, the scenery is splendid, but that's really just icing on the cake.

transport yourself back in time

by richiecdisc

Though Cusco is the main tourist city in Peru, buses there from the capital are long and uncomfortable affairs. We opted for a plane to save time. It was around $60 one way from Lima to Cusco. Taxis are a cheap way to get around town if you get lost or are tired but it is a small town so walking is the best way to experience the timeless air of the backstreets.

Around the "plaza de armas"

by chancay

All around the central place you find a lot of beautiful bars and restaurants with balconies and view to the place where really always happens something.
the prices are average to a little bit higher because of the central location.
