Advice on Cusco or Machu Picchu hotels and train schedules.

by Zwirner

I will be travelling to Cusco on 01-22-09. I was wondering whether I should book a hotel in Cusco or Machu Picchu. I will be departing Cusco on 01-27-09 at 8:00am and I am wondering how easy it will be if I was to take a train from Machu Picchu back to Cusco in order to make my flight. Thank you.

You must take the train back the day before your flight.
I think that at this time of year and your likely arrival time in Cusco makes it unnecessary to pre-book a hotel room.

One warning though. I am just back (in Colombia now) from Lima and saw that a lot of flight to/from Cusco are delayed and even cancelled due to bad weather at this moment in the Cusco area. My (LAN Peru) flights, though not to/from the Sierras, also had hours of delays because of that.
Cusco airport is a "visual only" airport.
So don´t plan too tightly, would be my advice.

I wrote an explanation/warning on one of my pages. You may want to read that.

Travel Tips for Lima

Plaza de Bolognesi in Lima

by grandmaR

In the center of the Plaza is this monument to Bolognesi

I figured out what is was because I had a photo which had the name of Alfonso Ugarte on it. During the War of the Pacific, Alfonso Ugarte formed the Iquique battalion to fight for Peru with his own money and he fought with Fracisco Bolognesi in the last battle of the War of the Pacific, the battle of Arica on June 7th, 1880. When he noticed that the Chileans had already taken over the Morro, he wrapped himself in the Peruvian flag and jumped off the cliff with his horse. He was not going to let the enemy take his country's flag. He was 33 years old when he died.

This monument was done to commemorate that battle. Agustin Querol won the first prize to make the monument. The cross-like base shows several scenes of the Arica battle including the incident with Ugarte. In front there’s the statue of “La Fama”. It is shaped as an angel with covered eyes, starting to fly while it raises its hand. I don't have a picture of Ugarte but photo 2 shows the angel.

On top there’s a statue of Bolognesi. He was represented wounded and about to fall. A new statue done by Artemio Ocaña in 1954 replaced the old one because people thought that showing Bolognesi as a falling hero was dishonorable.

Pantanos de Villa

by Rasta_Rob

If you're interested in birding, or nature in general, and don't have much time to travel around Peru, take a day trip to the Pantanos de Villa wetlands just south of Lima. I took a guided trip with Gunnar Engblom of Kolibri Expeditions, and added 25 new birds to my life list in just one morning.

an amazing seafood experience ' A la limeña'!!

by delgadomib about El Limon

Run by this nice lady, a small restaurant in San Borja, provides yummy seafood with personal attention for special tastes. Though crowded on most Saturdays and Sundays for lunch, the quality of the food is still wow! The 'cebiche mixto' and 'cebiche de camarones' are amazing

Tales from the Crypt

by intiqori

The San Francisco Monastery is a church near downtown Lima’s main square, built in traditional Moorish style. It is renowned for housing centuries of the city’s dead in overflowing catacombs underneath its foundations, but it is also home to several pieces of historical religious artwork and a library housing thousands of volumes of centuries old texts and parchments. Now filled with local school children and visiting tourists, the monastery bustles with activity. Several guides lead groups around the monastery, highlighting the history of the church and its historical artifacts, and the highlight of the tour for many are the stacks of skulls and bones in the crypts underneath the structure. Overall, the monastery is well worth a visit if you are visiting downtown Lima.
