  • Great place, great value

    "The penthouse is a great place to rent for families or couples. I had my teenage and older children. Everyone loved the huge deck and the views of Medellin. The pool table was a nice bonus. All the rooms are large, well appointed and each has it's own nice bathroom. Tons of space, great location, nice owner. This was the best place we stayed at on our trip and would recommend it to anyone with a large group wanting to spend a few days in Medellin."

  • Great Apartment, Great Location!

    "My husband and I visit our family in Argentina approximately twice per year and routinely rent apartments there whenever we visit. Out of more than 25 different apartments that I've rented in Buenos Aires, I can say that the process for renting this particular apartment was the easiest and most efficient. I really appreciated that. I also appreciated the ability to pay via credit/debit card without additional fees or hassle. Most Argentine owners or agencies require you to pay in cash with only a small down payment permitted via credit card. This is a huge hassle and a security risk (traveling with so much cash), so this made a great impression. I also really appreciated the helpful emails I received from the owner and apartment manager. Everyone was on top of the booking, check-in, and check-out process, allowing for a smooth visit. As for the apartment itself, I think the description listed on VRBO sells it short. It's advertised as small, but I wouldn't really say that. It may not be enormous, but it's plenty big enough for two guests. I wouldn't recommend it for more than two people, but my husband and I had plenty of space. The bed was very comfortable and I appreciated the higher-end sheets and towels that the owners brought from the US. We don't know much about furniture or design, but I could tell that the owners have put a lot of thought (and money) into those elements. We enjoyed them even if we couldn't really appreciate them for what they are. The location of the apartment was great for our purposes as our family lives in Palermo. All our trips outside the neighborhood were fast and easy using taxis. The location next to the zoo was kind of fun because we could hear the monkeys and even the elephants when standing out on the balcony! If you have never visited Buenos Aires and don't speak Spanish then you might want to consider staying in a hotel with a concierge and English speaking staff to assist you for your first visit, but otherwise I highly recommend this apartment as a fantastic "home base." It is MUCH cheaper than staying in a five star hotel (which run about U$S 500-750 per night) and is honestly just as nice. Just as a tip, if you enjoy that type of luxury then don't miss afternoon high tea service at the Alvear Palace Hotel or the spa at the Park Hyatt Palacio Duhau. You can combine the benefits of your own private apartment with a five star hotel stay! Thanks to the owners for a great visit -- we will be back!"

Peru Travel Tips

Attractions and Activities at Peru Vacation Rentals

When traveling to Peru, it is a good idea to decide what you really want to see and plan your travels around that. There are so many amazing attractions that you may get sidetracked and miss out on some of the best sites. Most people start their sightseeing in Lima. Lima is Peru's cultural center and home to some fantastic museums. To get to Machu Pichu, Peru's most famous landmark, you need to fly to Cuzco. From there, you can embark on a multi-day trek up to Machu Pichu or you can take a day trip up there by bus. It is advisable to book an early morning tour as by midday the site is often swarming with tourists which in a way spoils the ambiance of this mountain sanctuary. To experience the Amazon jungle, take a flight to Iquitos. From there, you can embark on a jungle-trekking excursion. There are also many rivers in Peru that offer excellent whitewater rafting.

Visitors to Peru Condos

Peru has a wealth of attractions that can capture the interest of almost every traveler. Peru is most famous for its Inca ruins, in particular Machu Pichu. Each year thousands of tourists venture from Cuzco to visit the ancient site. The Andes provide excellent trekking opportunities and in recent years, many mountain biking tours have started which traverse the mountain regions. Mountaineers are attracted to the challenging peaks. Nature enthusiasts can enjoy the jungles of the northern regions. Peru also has some beautiful beaches that attract sun lovers from around the globe.

Getting to Peru Beach Houses

The main airport in Peru is the Jorge Chavez International Airport which is located in Lima, the country's capital city. The airport is the primary inbound and outbound hub for Peru and provides domestic links to other cities such as Cuzco, Iquitos, Pucallpa and Ariquipa in the south. There are frequent international flights to Lima from most major cities in North, South and Central America. There are also direct flights that operate from London and Amsterdam. If you cannot find a direct flight to Lima, you may consider a flight routing that takes you via one of the other South American travel hubs such as Sao Paolo or Caracus. Once in Peru, it's best to fly to your domestic destination. Road transfers can be lengthy and have many delays. There are some regional trains but they are not really suited for tourists. In the cities, you can get around using the local taxi services. Private cabs tend to be more reliable than the public yellow cabs. Taxis are not metered and it is advisable to negotiate the fare before departing.

Best Time of Year to Visit Peru

Peru has a varied landscape, ranging from the high Andes in the south and central regions to the tropical rainforests of the Amazon basin in the northeast. The climate is equally varied and the time of year that you choose to travel will depend largely on your interests and the activities you want to participate in. If you plan to visit the beaches around Lima or the historic sites of Machu Pichu, the summer months are the best time of year to visit. If you plan on doing a trekking excursion, most run throughout the year in the lower altitudes. Alpine treks tend to favor the colder winter months when the peaks are more stable. The jungle regions can be visited from May to November. From December to April, heavy rains are experienced which makes getting around difficult.
