I returned from a 2 month trip to Peru in March, and am going back in a week, on the 21st.
I will be spending most of the 1.5 month long trip in the amazon, close to Iquitos, studying with a curandero. For those considering doing a tour in the amazon, most of them are a waste .. contact me and I can recommend some things, or if I am available I can personally give you a condensed tour, no charge.
Good journeys, everyone!
Im planning on backpacking all of central and south america starting november, spending 3 months in each country, roughly...
Im 19 and doing this solo. im worried about the crimes and kiddnapping guerrilla warfare and landmines in peru and all over really, if any of you can tell me how your trip was, or what you have read, it would be great. im really nervous, and want to come back home alive. I am going down backpacking for 2-3 years. its not my first high risk backpack trek either...its just ive been reading about all the government warnings that are released on Columbia, Chile, Panama,Ecuador,Peru,And Venezuela...thanks, good luck !
I'm heading to Peru from Chile in July - I land in Chile on the 2nd July and will prob be spending between 2 and 3 wks there before moving north..
I guess I'll be in Peru around the beginning to the middle of August - I know, I know... doesn't seem like enough time, but I've been in Asia since Oct and only have time for a taster over in South America!
If any of you guys will be about it would be good to pair/triple/quadruple up for sharing taxis/minibuses/dorms etc
In the meantime, take care all...
