We will most likely be in Lima on Saturday and would love some suggestions for areas to visit. Here's the catch: it's my husband's birthday and he is not too keen on big cities so I'm hoping there is somewhere close by that is quieter, pretty, scenic with some nice places to stay, eat and visit.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

This hostal recommended in the Lonely Planet guidebooks. I WAS ROBBED HERE. My boyfriend and I went to get dinner and explore. We returned without incident, but the next morning I was missing $500 from my bag. (I am positive it was there before we left for the evening) We searched the room entirely. Then we remembered that the padlock on the door fell apart when we returned the night before. I didn't think much of it at the time because...

Hello Fellow Travelers,
I have looked through old posts but not finding an answer to my question. I'm looking for a school in Cuenca where the one to one classes are not so expensive. I'm being quoted $12 USD per hour.....and then often that hour is really described as 45 minutes.
I'm a serious traveler, in my 60's, have studied spanish in quite a few...

I'll in Morro de Sao Paulo from January 3rd to January 6th and am looking for a pousada to saty on the 4rth beach (am looking for a calm place and it seems to be the best place, for waht I've read). I'm don't need luxury at all, but since evruthing is 80$ and over, I don't really mind paying more to have a nice place. What I mean by "nice":

Hai guys,

I'm facing a dilemma. If i do the Salkantay trek I have to cut off Huarez where I was thinking of doing the Santa Cruz trek. What do you think is nicer? Which one is tougher? Really can't make my mind up. I was not contemplating the idea of Salkantay but now that I'm in cusco I'm kind of changing my mind ... Help!

We are lucky enough to have a month (mid Dec – mid Jan) off work and to have found direct flights to the destination of our dreams! Bolivia here we come.

So what’s our question? Well, it relates to the activity of our dreams, trekking across mountains for several days at a time.

We know it will be the wet season, we know this means regular rain, the amount and times of which can’t be predicted...

Hi All,

I'm doing the Inca Trail at the beg of Jan 2015 and would appreciate some advice on what's good to bring. Also do you take your big rucksack with you or just a day pack for the trip?
