inca designed items brought from cusco or other areas.
tons of good shopping
What to pay: just to give you an idea;

Luggage and bags:
You will be able to shop and use dollars with no problem in several stores and restaurants. However dollars will be accepted but at a much lower rate
change your currency in Lima
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: although the cost is warm in the winter during the day, at night it gets cold so bring your sweater. Not a skiing jacket
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: there is no nyquil in Peru..
but the pharmacists are like doctors just give them your simptoms and they will prescribe the cure.
Photo Equipment: if you are taking a digital camera, make sure your recharger works on a 220volts (note that US currency is 110 volts)
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: bring your own sheet if you are camping, in cheap hotels or for any other use you might need.
Miscellaneous: sunblock is expensive so take it with you.
a pair of sneakers is always needed.
the Kayaks made of "totora" is a great entreitainment and sport that anyone can enjoy.
There are all types of Caballitos de Totora,
a one seater, like the Kayak .
The 2 seater like the Canoe
and you do not need experience to try
because if you want a conductor will balance your kayak
Equipment: bring your bathing suit.
You can rent a wet suit if you want, but not necessary
