HowtoPeru Facebook

The idea behind the How to Peru Facebook page is quite simple: a place for people planning trips to Peru, and those already on the road, to meet up online and share advice, recommendations and Peru travel tips. I’ll also be sharing any interesting Peru-related articles that I come across (or that I write myself, of course!). That’s the general idea, anyway.

Find Peru Backpacking Companions on the Peru Facebook Page

Feel free to start any discussions on the Peru Facebook page – I’m hoping that it will turn into a place where you can find Peru travel companions and arrange to meet up, get together for group tours, that kind of thing.

Did you know? - The Tourist Information Center at 799 Avenida Jose Larco in Miraflores offers important free information for all travelers to Peru. Visit our blog for more information!

    looking to do some sand boarding from Lima. How far is it and do I need more than 1 day to do it, any info on costs, getting there?

    Hi Mauricio, sorry about the late response.

    One of the best known spots near Lima is the Dunas de Asia, easily done in a day (there are a handful of agencies with websites offering trips to Dunas de Asia, you could try contacting them for more details). That said, it’s definitely worth making the trip to Ica (4 hours approx) then the short hop to Huacachina, a much better sandboarding location. You could head there really early, or spend the night.

    Cheers, Tony.

    Brits are being encouraged to avoid Peru like the plague after the typically-retarded South American government reversed its decision to welcome Plymouth-based HMS Montrose to its port. The next time the ship nears the coast, it just may treat Peruvians the way it did Argentinians…Think about it!

      “Brits are being encouraged to avoid Peru like the plague”

      I’m not sure where you’re getting that info. I certainly haven’t seen any such warnings.

    I’ve looked into airline prices from Lima to Arequipa and Cusco to Lima and I can get one way tickets for about $160 each from LAN airlines online. Does this sound reasonable or am I more likely to get a better price buying them once I reach Lima possibly from another domestic carrier?

      Hi Angeline. You can definitely find cheaper flights. StarPeru has flights from Cusco to Lima for about $100, for example.
