Seems pretty logical to me. You won't get much of the Amazonian vibe while you're there. You can do that another time! :)

If it's an itinerary from a guided tour, then things should go according to what has been pre-planned. It's a tight schedule, which doesn't really give you much time to relax in between. It almost appears like you'll just be "on the run" from the moment you leave NY to the moment you come back from this trip. Overall, it looks like you will cover most of the known Peruvian tourist destinations in a constrained time schedule. Good Luck & Enjoy Beautiful Peru!

by robine

Agreed - it's an extremely hectic schedule, but well planned. In 10 days in Peru you'll see (a few) places I didn't in two years living and working there!

Re: Please critique our itinerary - 10 days PERU

by ArnoldLC

hey waxlrose :)

you mentioned about the amazonian vibe sounds interesting :)

can you tell me more about it? like where and how many days
you should spend to get the "amazonian vibe"? :)

Re: Please critique our itinerary - 10 days PERU

by ArnoldLC

thanks! any suggestions to make the trip less "hectic"?

add a few days of rest in between? maybe a day or 2?

we cant decide which places to take out :(

Re: Please critique our itinerary - 10 days PERU

by kiwigal_1

I wouldnt take anything out. I think it is a comprehensive itinerary and although busy I don´t think it will be exhausting. You will have rest times on your bus and boat transportation in any case. Enjoy your trip!

Cheers, Rhianon

Travel Tips for Lima

What is my opinion of Peru?

by crummey

Now, what are my opinions of Peru?

Yes, the telephones and toilets and sinks and faucets very often do not work.

And yes there are computer terminals in every town of any substance, and chinese restaurants too.

And yes, the lager towns have their own Chinatowns.

And yes the Chinese food can be cheaper in North America or Europe.

And yes the lucky people live in concrete and cinderblock buildings.

And yes, the unlucky ones live in mud or thatch with their animals.

And yes they sh*t on the street and p*ss on the street.

And Yes they think Gringos are stupid and rich.

And Yes, if they thought gringos were smart then they might ty to emulate us and give their people clean water.

And yes, they love to rob tourists.

And yes they think every tourist came to this country simply to become a cocaine addict.

And yes they serve instant coffee in the restaurants, even though coffee is from Peru and they could easily brew real coffee.

And they Hate Gringo. They HATE gringos for three reasons: they think we are rich, they think we are arrogant and they think we want to sleep with their women.

But they love gringos. They LOVE gringos for three reasons: they think we are rich, they think we are arrogant and they think we want to sleep with their women. I think there is a bit of a paradox there, dont you?

And that is Peru, or atleast the Peru I know...perhaps there is another peru.

Parque de la Exposicion

by richiecdisc

This lovely park is a true oasis in this sometimes nerve-wrecking city. There are Japanese gardens, gazebos, and small man-made lakes. It's a real gathering place for locals on weekends and easy to see why. Though most take a taxi here, we found it an interesting walk. I was accosted by a wild group of tranvestites, with balloons for breasts, who insisted on squeezing my biceps despite their being bigger than me. Doreen found this amusing as I smiled graciously and tried to walk on as fast as I could!

Cala Clone

by baanasta about Punta Blanca

This is a new place that has opened up right next to Cala. It is right on the water in the Costa Verde in Barranco. Is very similar to Cala as well in terms of the crowd, music (techno), restuarant, and general atmosphere. It is, however, more spacious than Cala and everything is on one level. The patio is also signifcantly bigger. It will be interesting to see which place draws a bigger crowd since they are so similar, but for now they both seem to be doing well. Both of these places will be great places to go when it starts to get warmer in Lima around November/December. Relatively upscale like Cala. Nice jeans OK.

Pizza Rustica

by XKuger about Pizza Rustica

This is great restaurant to watch people around the Miraflores restautant strip right around the miraflores park.

Best time is to go there ealy evening or even late night when you can get a seat by the sidewalk and watch the action.

The traffic is slowed by the cops to slow snarl and pollutions is as bad as during the day. You can see the world go by sitting at this restaurant.

I visited twice, the first time I tried the vegatable Lasagna with was terrible. Just like a large pot pie with a load of cheese.

The second time I tried a plain pizza which was much better. The food is about average and the pricing is also average. Definitly try the Pizza, its much better than tha pasta.

MUSEO LARCO and Ancient Erotica!

by Denverite

So I stumbled upon the Museo Larco during my stay in Peru. I honestly wasn't very interested in visitng the museum and then I heard about the Erotic gallery there. Of course I didn't believe it and had to check it out for myself...and it's TRUE!!!! There is an amazing collection of Erotic pottery, that's unlike anything else you'll see in Peru. There is also a storage collection that's filled with thousands of objects that you can walk into. Not to mention the great cafe that they have in the museum's garden.

This place was my favorite thing in Peru!
