Wheelchair accessible travel?

by halfromnm

Greetings! My wife and I will be visiting Peru in early October. The complicating issue is my confinement to a wheelchair since having two major sugeries last year. I will be taking a small folding tavel wheelchair. Will it be possible to hire taxis to drive us btween cities? Are there any wheelchair accessible hotels and restaurants? We have engaged a tour company to show us Machu Picchu and Cuzco, then heat up the Noth coast to Chiclayo, Trujillo, and Sechin. We'd also like to see Chavin de Huantar, but can only afford a couple of days of expensive tour travel and have used those up on MP and Cuzco. Any advice would be appreciated!

Thank you!

If you're really interested I could give you the address of a friend of ours who is running her travel agency now in Lima. Just email me here.

We ended up staying at Hotel Golf in Trujillo and El Gran Hotel in Chiclayo. Both had wheelchair accessible rooms and good amenities. We would have preferred an interesting little out of the way place, but that may not be possible in a wheelchair. At least, not yet. We also made it to Chavin de Huantar with Apumayo Expediciones, and had a great time! We had to have the wheelchair carried in places at Machu Picchu and Chavin de Huantar, and somewhat at Cerro Sechin and Caral-Supe(because of sand). We had a great time, in spite of my mobility limitations!

Travel Tips for Trujillo

The police are polite and professional.

by crummey

The people of Peru are good. But the country does have some problems. Make friends with the cops because if the cops are not on your side, then no one in Peru is on your side!! Have a great vacation!!!!

Riders of the Peruvian Pasos

by grandmaR

The dress for the show ring is like what we saw in Trujillo - a little different from what we think of as show ring attire. Riders wear white jeans, a white shirt and a Peruvian hat. Some classes require a "poncho", worn over the "whites". I saw the Peruvian hats for sale at some stalls. They were hats with a flat wide brim. Sometimes they were made of leather.

International Spring Festival

by sweetgy

International Festival of the Spring.
From the 22 of September until October 4 -
Party of happiness, youth and color, in which participate the whole city and their visitors. Traditional "Corso" of the Flowers that begins at the Mansiche Stadium and travels through the city. Allegorical cars with the beauty queens, preceded of cheer leaders from U.S., folkloric groups, groups of students from school and university, "Chalanes" (horsemen) riding their extraordinary "Caballo de Paso Peruano". Foreign and Peruvian delegations participate. Parties at nights, beauty contests, artistic and cultural activities. This festival generates the visit of many Peruvian and foreign people to Trujillo.

Peruvan Animals

by grandmaR

We saw Peruvian Paso horses (photo 5) and at the Temple of the Moon we saw a Peruvian Hairless Dog. This dog has its origins in pre-Inca cultures in the Peruvian coastal zone. It's not really an Incan dog - the mountains of the Incas are too cold for this dog. Ceramic hairless dogs from the Chimú, Moche, and Vicus culture are well known from around 750 A.D.

The Spanish conquest of Peru nearly caused the extinction of the breed. The dogs survived in rural areas, where the people believed that they held a mystical value.

I don't think that the one we saw at the archeological site was a particularly beautiful one by breed standards, but it was interesting to see him. According to standards, the dog may have short hair on top of its head, on its feet, and on the tip of its tail, but completely hairless dogs are preferred. The color of skin can be chocolate-brown, elephant grey, copper, or mottled.

Iglesia de la Compañia de Jesús

by grandmaR

Although this is on the main Plaza (Independencia and Jr. Almagro), this building is not mentioned as much in the tour guides. It was built before the Cathedral, and was a work of Diego de la Puente between 1632-1633. It was considered the bench mark for later buildings, including the cathedral. The Jesuits were expelled from the colonies around 1766 & never returned to Trujillo.

Simón Bolívar founded the first republican university there in 1824 & the National University of Trujillo still uses it for conferences & occasional exhibits. Inside are the paintings of the Jesuit father Diego de la Puente

It has doric, ionic & compound Corinthian capitals on its columns.
