Reliable Travel Agent

by Syvde

I am considering booking a tour online with a travel agency in Lima called Rundomundo, with offices in Miraflores. Can anybody comment on its reliability? Thanks so much.

You can also check Prom Peru's site (Official Site of Tourism, Travel and Promotion) where the recognized travel agencies and operators are listed...

Rundomundo is not listed as such here. In spite of this it does appear in the Peruvian revenue service listing as an active travel agency (paying taxes).

Re: Reliable Travel Agent

by Terence001

Miraflores is a place of wonder and imagination. It is always better to hire a travel agent to get most out of them. Make sure to be safe while hiring a good travel agent, as there are many cheating agents around. A good travel agent may help you in booking your air tickets, making hotel reservations and arranging vacation travel in general within your budget.

Travel Tips for Lima

Pets of Lima

by staindesign

There are stray dogs and cats all over Lima. And these dogs are so much smarter than any dog in the US. They can cross the busy streets, they look both ways! And they move around like they are little humans with a place to be. Plus they are friendly, they aren't feral at all!

Driving in Lima is Only for the Corageous

by AKtravelers

The taxi ride from the airport should be enough to convince you that driving is only for the very corageous. Limenos seem to observe only one rule while driving -- wait a second after your light turns green because certainly someone is running their red light. After that it sdeems like a free for all, with lane markings and other directions apparently only placed on the roads for ornamentation.
Being in a taxi might not seem much safer, but at least these guys are professsionals with experience. You aren't.
As for he combos and mini-buses, they are not considered safe, either for the way they drive (we saw one almost tip over) or for what can appen to you during a crash (no seatbelts). Given the cheap prce of taxis, I recommend looking one over well (pick one with seat belts) and negotiating a good price, then getting in. Taxis come with the addeed bonus of a talkative driver who won't mind your minimal Spanish.

List of my favourite peruvian food

by chancay

First of all I would like to make a list of all these excellent food you have to test in Peru. In Lima you find all of them in great variety:

ANTICUCHOS (grilled heart of cow with potatoes and a hot sauce)

CEVICHE or CEBICHE(raw fish and sea fruits in a lemon sauce with onions, some special spices)

PAPA A LA HUANCAINA (potatoes with a spicy sauce made out of eggs, oil, aji (spicy sauce), salt crackers.........

AJI DE GALLINA (cooked chicken with special spicy sauce (aji)) I found great preperation tips at VT karigalli´s page

TAMALES (can´t explain it very well, it´s a mass of corn with eggs and meet put into the leaf of corn

CAUSA RELLENA

PALTA RELLENA

OCOPA (another tipical sauce like the "a la huancaina")

LOMO SALTADO (grilled beef in little pieces with rice and salad)

CHURROS (sweet dough filled with honey, you can get it at every corner in the city, really deliciuos)

POLLO A LA BRASA (ok, you can get grilled chicken all around the world, but the sauce they use is delicious!!!)

The most common drinks are:

CHICHA MORADA (a drink made of purple corn)

INKA COLA (very sweet yellow soft drink)

PISCO (a type of grape brandy, used for Cocktails, especially PISCO SOUR or to drink the better ones pure....delicious!)

There are also some good peruvian wines, although mostly drinken are chilenian ones. Can´t recommend a peruvian wine, (disculpenme peruanos, no les conozco muy bien) but I like very much the
CASILLERO DEL DIABLO, the red wine from Chile. Normally you can get it in a lot of stores in Perú. I adore from all of these ...all....:-)
ok, my favs are ANTICUCHOS in the streets, late at night after being out e.g.
and CEBICHE!!!!
TAMALES are great for breakfast as well.

Museo Larco or Larco Museum

by ruelllyn

This is one of those little treasures you don't expect to find in South America. The museum was fantastic! It's a private museum run by the family of the archaeologist and founder. They have a collection of about 45,000 pre-Columbian objects including a spectacular Erotic Gallery featuring ceramics in all sorts of positions. It's definitely a must see!!
