  • An Oasis!

    Arequipa Restaurants

    This is the restaurant in the Hotel Casa Andina Private Collection - it has a name but I cannot remember it. The hotel is in the loveliest old casa, which was once The Mint. Beautifully restored and adapted. Service is as expected in a 5 star hotel. BUT, the prices are NOT five star. Only a few soles more than one pays in an ordinary restaurant in...

    Arequipa Restaurants

    International Food and Regional Food. In a country that seems to favour noise as an accompaniment to eating, it was lovely to find this restaurant. The music is very faint. The ambiance is quiet and unrushed. Comfortable chairs. Efficient but not servile service. Wine is available in the glass, the half litre, the litre and by the bottle. One...

    Chivay What to Pack

    I visited Chivay during the easter holidays, and it was very cold at night (we had an electric heather in our room), so bring warm clothes even when is not winter time.

    These hot springs are located four kms from Chivay, two big swiming pools with showers, and a small cafeteria. I was surprised to find different swiming pools (and prices) for peruvians and tourists.

  • Amazing landscape

    Colca Things to Do

    In the Colca Canyon I saw the most beautiful landscapes of my trip to Peru. I was even more impressed by these views than by the also spectacular ones of Machu Pichu. The landscape all along the canyon and the valley is just amazing and the watching of the condors in the 'Condor's Cross' is a great experience.

  • Chinese and Peruvian Cuisine Fusion

    Lima Restaurants

    While in Lima, we saw lots of restaurants with the word "Chifa" in their name. We thought it might be a Chinese food restaurant chain. Only near the end of our trip to Peru did we learn that "Chifa" is a specific term used to generally refer to eating Chinese food or going to a Chinese restaurant. The twist is that the Chinese food served in Chifas...

    Just behind the Presidential Palace on the bank of the Rimac River stands the impressive facade of the building now known as the "House of Peruvian Literature."
