GOOD TO KNOW

  • The accommodations on the Machu Pichu sites are very touristy. Therefore we would recommend it for a day trip. 
  • Our stay in the jungle was a little bit disappointing. The lake is close to a city and therefore we didn’t see Jaguar and Pumas. Don’t expect a safari tour with a lot of wild animals.
  • The train journey is a great way to discover the country and its variety. However, it is each time a long journey. There is not much to do on the train. Bring family games. 
  • Just stay in Lima for your flight stopover or get good advice from locals.
