I explored a decent part of Peru during a month-long visit. Did the classic gringo trail (Lima, Arequipa (+ Colca Canyon), Puno, Cuzco (+ Inca Trail to Machu Picchu), and then went up north to Caraz to do some hiking in the Cordillera Blanca.
I was born in Lima, Peru and I moved the United States in 1990. I travel to Peru often since my brother and sister still live there. I can give you advice and some helpful hints about where to stay and where to go, the good, bad and ugly. But all and all, it is a great place to visit and if you can go to Macchu Piccu, it is worth the additional few days. I did the Inka Trail in 2002, great experience!!
I spent a couple of months travelling around Peru in 2008 and I returned here in 2011 and am still here, working voluntarily with an organisation dealing with marine conservation. I am currently based in Lima, spending a lot of time working out of the port of Pucusana.
All about Places, ruins, food, discos, guides, buses, prices, hotels, flights, restaurants, tickets, museums, beaches, Spanish classes, city tours. All the information you NEED to know about Peru.

Hello, I am Favio and I work at a Travel Agency, I know mostly all the cities of Peru and I can help you making your itinerary, to look for some hotels or just to give you and advise, I speak french also.
If you have any question please let me know it.
I can help people giving information about ecotourism, destination around Peru, and specially jungle destinations
For those who have trouble finding a good Tour Operator in Cusco, a jungle of T.O's, I want to recommend United Mice(firstname.lastname@example.org).
I adore Peru and just came back from my 3rd trip and the best one yet. There are a multitude of treks to hike around Cusco but the problem is finding a good Tour Operator. Cusco has over 1000 Tour Operators and most of them are a rip-off (no professional guides, arrive late, no English, abandon the group, food-poisoning during treks, tents leak, ...) Going on such an adventure you have to go with knowledgeable people and well prepared. Unfortunately that wasn't always the case in my past trips to Peru. I recently hiked the Salkantay trek with United Mice and I must say that it was spectacular! The guides were very professional, knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. The food was amazing 8better than most restaurants), well paid porters...
I highly recommend all that want to hike these beautifull landscapes to experience it with United Mice.

i know what a backpacker wants so i could bring a good help
i also have my own web page about backpackers in peru the first and unique :
If people are interested in Peru or travel, exploration, and volunteering in South America.
When having 30 to more years, following the guidebook is not usually the best way to enjoy your trip. Crowded cheap hostels are usually the best way to get sick or be robed. Let me give you some advise when travelling by the south of Peru, Bolivia or North of Chile. Six years working in travelling. By the way, I teach Spanish too.
This is a peruvina student. I live in lima. I can host people in hotels. I have been travel throught Peru so I can help in order to guide people coming from overseas.
