Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu
Review of Salkantay Trek, Machu Picchu by Milito

Advantages: Great Experience to Salkantay Mountain
Disadvantages: I don't know

What an awesome trek! We finished at Machu Picchu and the diversity of eco-systems was unbelievable. Inca Trail Machu is a great company (http://www.incatrailmachu.com). Everything was organised and really we were catered for so well, I am ver ... Read review

Review of Lake Sandoval, Tambopata Reserve by hiker

Advantages: A simply gorgeous part of the planet
Disadvantages: None

Sandoval is an oxbow lake in the Tambopata National Reserve in Peru. It's an off-cut remnant from the meanders of the Rio Madre de Dios in south western Peru, close to the Bolivian border. It's really hard to find any objective information to give you ... Read review

Reservations Overcome at the Inkaterra Reserva
Review of Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica, Tambopata by hiker

Advantages: Location, service, experience (all of it)
Disadvantages: None - even if you don't think you'll like this kind of terrain

Getting There If I'm honest the one part of my trip to Peru that I wasn't looking forward to, was the Amazon rainforest. Yes, I know how special it is and all that, but the facts are: I'm over-weight and unfit and don't really do hot sweaty envir ... Read review

Bella Hacienda
Review of Hacienda Del Valle, Urubamba by hiker

Advantages: A touch of style and quiet luxury; old world charm
Disadvantages: Expensive by local standards

A Lucky Mistake? Sometimes on a tour things go wrong. Sometimes when they go wrong, it's a really GOOD thing. We were supposed to be staying in Yucay. I've no idea why that didn't happen, and I've chosen not to look up the hotel we missed ... Read review

Not Just Another Burial Site
Review of Sillustani, Puno by hiker

Advantages: Another take on Peru's long history
Disadvantages: Facilities at the site are extremely limited.

Sillustani was supposed to be a tail-end visit, a leg-stretch at the end of a long day on the road. However, with the unrest in the city and a guide who wanted to get in, hand us over and get out as quickly as possible, it was deferred. This might well ... Read review

Disadvantages: Rooms very basic

Floating Islands & the Rock
Review of Lake Titicaca by hiker

Advantages: Contrasting cultures
Disadvantages: You need to be open minded about money being made from tourism

Puno The guide book makes it sound quite charming as it talks of a regal plaza and buildings that blend into the hills. That wasn't quite how we saw it. You approach the city from above and no matter how romantic you're willing to be ab ... Read review

Collaguan Charm
Review of Hotel Pozo Del Cielo, Chivay by hiker

Advantages: Delightfully eccentric
Disadvantages: No serious disadvantages - but DO talk to the kitchen if you're vegetarian

Arrival I'd love to be original, but whoever wrote the Lonely Planet entry nailed it. Looking a bit like something Gaudi might have crafted probably does sum it up. That writer goes on to talk about the seven dwarves, which misses the mark ... Read review

Bloody bugs won't let me rate. Sorry by koshkha
Tough in no way a veggie, I always felt the alpacas were too cuddly-looking to eat. Good to know I didn't miss a lot there. I did miss driving on the high plains - too much of a hurry. I'm slightly surprised by what you say about rail. I thought it was possible to train up from Arequipa to Lake Titicaca, and then from there to Cusco. I'd be glad to know if it isn't possible - since I've always regretted not having done it! by torr
