Re: Lima to Cusco

Finding buses is easy, but be aware that there are several bus companies that are somewhat informal, they offer cheaper prices but are not safe at all. There has been a lot of accidents lately because of them.
Better pay a little more and be safe, Cruz del Sur is the most recommended for this. Hope you enjoy Peru!

Travel Tips for Lima


by SirRichard

Wooden balconies are characteristic of Lima architecture. They are part of the Spanish heritage and, besides their aesthetic value, have (had) a practical side. Most of these balconies had wooden strips letting only tiny spaces between them; this way, people from inside could stare at streetlife without being seen from the outside. This was importants in the 18-19th centuries way of life...

Downtown marketplace

by shdw100

This downtown marketplace was cool in the fact that it was enclosed on top and the shops lined the buildings on either side. The marketplace was located near the Presidential palace area, but I believe is no longer there as it had a recent fire which gutted most of the shops.

You can take a bus or a plane to travel in Peru, but do not go to the BUS STATION alone !

LIMA to CUSCO or AREQUIPA = 20 - 36 hours, then you can go to Lake Titicaca and Bolivia , La Paz....

Take a coat, it is cold if you go by bus !

Information from TintinPeru:

The Main bus companies in Peru are:

Cruz del Sur (www.cruzdelsur.com)

Just 2 corrections to my previous post:
the website of Cruz delSur is www.cruzdelsur.com.pe
the route from Cusco to Lima is:Cusco-Abancay-Ayacucho-Pisco (not Nasca)-Lima.

Grupo Ormeño (www.grupo-ormeno.com)


Lima Bus Station
There is no central bus station in Lima, each company has its own arrival and departure depot.
Be particularly careful with your valuables at any of the bus stations since there are always thieves and bag snatchers looking out for an opportunity.
The biggest and best companies with countrywide destinations are

Calle Carlos Zavala 177  Tel 427 5679 
They also have an office at Avenida Javier Prado Este 1059 Tel 472 1710

Cruz del Sur
Quilca 531, Tel 424 0040

Japanese -Peruvian fusion!

by Urzu about Osaka

This is mainly a Japanese restaurant with a Peruvian twist to it! The food was delicious, que quality was great, and the inside of the restaurant was very nicely done. Also they've got some really great cocktails! I would recommend the Tai Chi, which is made with Sake, orange juice and cinnamon... very good and not too strong! If you like curry try the "cucharillas" with clams, and otherwise all the sushi is pretty good

Plaza de Armas

by acemj

A great place to start any tour of Lima is in the Plaza de Armas in El Centro. This has literally been the center of the city for hundreds of years. Much has been altered or renovated over the years, but the bronze fountain in the middle of the square has looked the same since 1651. In 1821, Jose de San Martin announced Peru's independence from Spain from this very spot.

I enjoyed our quick walk around Plaza de Armas. There were quite a few people sitting on the benches here just relaxing as well as plenty of people crossing the square going about their business of daily life. Like almost every square in Lima, you'll find the city's main cathedral here along with the City Hall.
