Hi there,

Does anybody know if it's possible to post a parcel of stuff back to the UK, from either the main post office in Cusco, or from Lima airport? And if so, do they provide boxes?

Many thanks

Hello,
Yes it is possible, but you have to bring your own box. Bring it open because they will like to look at what you will send. Also, you will have to do a customs declaration (very simple) but in case you are sending new stuff, bring the receipts.

There are post offices in Cuzco and Lima. In Cuzco there is a big one few blocks down from the main square on Sol Avenue. Just in front of the Koricancha (museum). In Lima, there is one in Larco Avenue on the way to Larcomar shopping center in Miraflores.

Have a safe trip,
Ivan

Thanks very much Ivan. Unfortunately the main post office in Cusco is closed all week for Semana Santa, and I leave Cusco on Sunday. But hopefully the one in Lima will be open once I get there :)
