My girlfriend and I are heading to Peru in two weeks for three weeks. We are flying into Lima where we will meet up with some friends of a friend, beyond that we are tentatively planning on taking a bus to Arequipa for a few days, then to Cuzco, and then visiting Lake Titicaca before flying out of La Paz.

Any and all advice will be welcomed, from sights that can't be missed to those that should definitely be avoided, safety concerns, places to stay, things to eat, beer to drink, etc. We're especially looking for any recommendable day hikes out of the above mentioned cities. Please share your experiences!

We're not bringing any gear besides shoes and chalk, nor is that the purpose of our trip, however, if you can recommend any pretty or convenient boulderfields with decent landings, or perhaps a modestly priced guide service anywhere along our route it will be taken into consideration. Please note that I have been perusing toposperu or whatever it is called, so feel free to make reference to that resource if useful for climbing related activities.

Thanks everyone!

It's been a few years since I was there, but I really enjoyed huacachino, which is an oasis right outside ica. They've got some fun dune buggy rides that go for miles as well as some sandboarding. Don't remember exactly where I stayed but I remember it being on the northwest corner of town Kyle Coleman
