Fair price for a translator

by kaylon80

I'm arranging a tour through Lima for a professor that is lecturing there. He will be there for 5 days, and needs a translator (english/spanish). If anyone has an idea of what a fair daily rate would be, I would greatly appreciate your advice.

Travel Tips for Lima

For the avid photographers, if...


For the avid photographers, if you really must take pics of the local people, no problem - just spare a thought for them and give them a small tip.

If you really want to take pics of the local people without them knowing, I suggest you use a zoom lens because Peru is no zoo and the Indian people here do want to be respected. Just like you wouldn't like people to go taking your pics when you are eating or walking, would you? Let's treat these nice Peruvian folks with deep respect. I do feel very strongly about this issue especially since I've seen the number of tourists who point their cameras right into the faces of these poor souls - and they appear just so helpless most times!! Please don't be like those paparazzi. :=) I'd never talk to you ever again if you do that!!!!!!!!!!!!

supermercado II

by chancay about WONG

Similar to Santa Isabel, also in the whole city of Lima in several districts. You can get everything here as well, fresh food and all you need, but it is except of the offers often more expensive than in the market places. But the quality is general very good (as in St Isabel as well)

From abroad, by plane.

From abroad, by plane.
From Peru itself, at least from the coast, there are plenty of coaches, some of them being really luxury ones. If you have time, why not?
I did myslef the trip from Lima to Santiago in February 1998 (company Ormeños). 60 hours!! A once in a lifetime experience. I won't do it a second time. For sure, you will know your neighbours and learn why Peruvian go to work in Cile (if you can speak Spanish) and they might invite you home to drink some Pisco.
Plenty of cheap buses, but it looks like each bus belongs to a different company. So, do not expect any plan or schedule o bus stop, just ask people in the street or at your hotel. And ask the driver where you have to get out.
Otherwise, taxis are cheap. You just have to negociate the price before getting in. Minimum fare in 2000: 3 soles. For less than 10 soles you could already go to a different neighbourhood.
You can also rent a car, although I would consider doing it only if you want to go out of Lima. Driving in Lima is quite crazy.

Check out Pizza Street

by cruisingbug about Angello's???

Calle San Ramon, a pedestrian street off Av. Diagonal in Miraflores, is known as "Pizza Street" or "Pizza Alley" - I assume for its abundance of Italian eateries. Seemed to be well-populated with tourists.

I've given up trying to remember the name of the restaurant we chose here. It was the third one down on the left from Diagonal, on the pedestrial street corner, and it was a man's name with a "ll" in the name. Sorry I'm not more helpful.

The man on the right in the picture ran the show - he showed us a menu on the street, sat us, got our drinks, took our order, made the pizza, and I assume cleaned up. There was a woman cooking in the back, as well. The food was good - I got a "medium" size pizza, which was the smallest, and was really a 1/2 of a larger size. Mine had chicken on it, lots of cheese, very tasty. Hubby had a chicken sandwich and fries.
