Staying in Jose's Annex
Review of Hotel Jose Antonio, Miraflores, Lima by hiker

Advantages: Well-organised and handled a group well; decent location
Disadvantages: Don't be taken in by the website pics - you might be in a different building

Advantages: Wildlife you will see no where else on earth, knowledgeable guides, friendly locals, snorkelling.
Disadvantages: Hard work, very very hot, lots of hopping on and off boats and some heights - not for everyone.

My Nan was a really keen traveller and managed to get to see an impressive 82 countries in her time. After she passed away few years ago, my Mum and I decided we would use the money she left us to tick a few more off the list for her. First on the list wa ... Read review

Armadillo and crocodile gargoyles
Review of Basilica del Voto Nacional, Quito by catsholiday

Advantages: A beautiful building, great view and wonderful gargoyles
Disadvantages: You can get caught by the 'guides' outside offering to guide at a cost!

...beautiful building translates to the Basilica of the National Vow which is a rather odd name for a church in my view. Just to confuse matter it is also known as the Catedral Consagración de Jesús ... Read review
