Peru Travel Guide: 7,794 reviews and 20,751 photos
FIRST A COMMENT....MOST OF OUR TRIP TO PERU WAS CONCENTRATED ON THE TAMBOPATA RAINFOREST. PLEASE BE SURE TO VISIT MY SPECIFIC TAMBOPATA VT PAGE. Enjoy!
We arrived in Peru, spending the night in Lima on the date of President Alejandro Toledo's inauguration. Needless to say, the city's celebration made sleep difficult.
The next day, we flew through Cuzco, on our way to Puerto Maldonado and our date with the Tambopata rainforest. On the tarmac at Cuzco was President Toledo's personal plane. He was in town to head an Incan consecration ceremony to celebrate his election. President Toledo is the first person of indigenous descent to be elected president of Peru.
- Pros:Friendly, different, ancient and alive
- Cons:It's the 3rd world. You have to deal with setbacks
- In a nutshell:It's a most enjoyable learning experience. GO.
