NY Times Travel Blog features Arequipa!

Seth Kugel of the NYT's travel blog covered Arequipa over the weekend and will soon write on northern Peru. 

There were a few things missing--pisco sours and a trip to Majes valley/Cotahuasi canyon--but overall, it's a pretty good article. 

I can, however, confirm that this "frugal traveler" definitely got ripped off; I've never taken a taxi to anywhere in Arequipa for more than 6 soles.


  1. Every aspect of this adventure sounds so enthralling You must have some amazing memories and have definitely convinced me that I need to travel to Peru.

  2. Bus travel is the cheapest way to travel around in Peru. I would love for you to find out the best bus companies in Peru and then do a blog post around it.

  3. Salkantay trek is the alternative to the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu was recently named among the 25 best Treks in the World, by National Geographic Adventure Travel Magazine.
