"The condo is awesome! The views are breathtaking. Furnishings quite comfortable and there are plenty lounging areas for a family. We walked to Larcomar Plaza every day for grocery shopping, as well as casual an/or fine dining options. Easy access to buses and taxis make this a perfect location! Fabulous time."Guest: jlh Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: October 2, 2014View listing
"Wonderful location and well cared for condo. Owner is easy to work with. Nicely located to a great bakery and Ave La Mar for ceviche. Nice walk to Larcomar (major mall) for all that you need to tour Lima and beyond. Views are incredible. Security friendly and helpful."Guest: I luv Peru Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: September 26, 2014View listing
"A nice apartment located near the Ovalo Gutierrez, close to restaurants, transportation, local food shops and a super market. The place is quiet and relaxing on a low traffic side street. Nice, safe, well maintained, and secure. I recommend this for travelers who would like a little different stay than being in a hotel."Guest: Steve Z.

"My husband and I stayed in one of these wonderful apartments for 6 nights (one night was an overnight in Aguas Calientes). The apartment itself is large, very comfortable, spotlessly clean and in a safe neighborhood. The breakfast each morning was perfect. Yacqui is a great cook -- her banana pancakes are the best! Jay arranged all of our tours including our tour to Machu Picchu and we were very pleased with the the quality of both the tours and the tour guides. We also had the use of a cell phone when we arrived which was definitely an added benefit. The washer and dryer are also a great addition. The apartment is about a twenty minute walk from the downtown area but the walk is pleasant and takes you through some authentic neighborhoods and past several handicraft markets. We spent our last day with Betty, Jay's mom, visiting a couple of museums, eating lunch in a restaurant for locals, and spending the evening watching Peruvian dancing. She is delightful and because she was born in Cusco, she gave us a great perspective on the city. We enjoyed our stay in Cusco very much and would love to return someday. We would definitely stay in this apartment again."Guest: Fred and Janet Borch Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 15, 2014View listing
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.

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.

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.
