    Machupicchu, Cusco Region, Peru
    If you take the train in, stay in the town of Aguas Calientes the night before you plan to go to Machu Picchu. By staying in the town, you can get to the entrance first and snap some photos of the site without other tourists in your photos!

    Nazca, Southern Coast, Peru
    When you plan to visit Nazca lines ...don't forget that it's forbidden to walk alone in the desert without authorization and beeing with an official guide ...The best way to see everything there is to take a little plane flying upon the line ....not too expensive ...the other thing to do around Nazca is going into an orange Hacienda and taste there orange juices they're wonderfull and really cheap !

    Amazon Basin, Peru
    I did a trip up the amazon river right from the start in Peru when it still is river Urubamba. Tip: Don't book a guide, you don't need them. Bring your hammock for sleeping on the boats and the strongest insect repellent, maybe even a moskito net. Bring time... some days you are waiting for the next boat on the river bank but its not coming, and sometimes they tell you the boat is leaving but it leaves the next day... Bring enough cash - there are no ATM in the amazon. If you want you can bring little gifts for the village kids...

    Arequipa, Southern Coast, Peru
    A visit to Juanita is an absolute MUST when you visit Arequipa! We stayed at Home Sweet Home, the lady who runs it is lovely and breakfast is great, but the atmosphere a bit hectic with people running in and out and the rooms are not really set back from the hecticness (maybe it was just my room.) Anyways, still reccomend Home Sweet Home regardless.

    Pisac, Cusco Region, Peru
    The Alpaca blankets sold there are beautiful and soft, but have a tendancy to pull easily. It is possible to take public transit there much more cheaply than doing a tour- the earlier you go the longer you will have before the tour buses show but it doesn't really matter. If it is covered in tourists every week than it isn't any more authentic if you see it without the tourists- that is what everything is there for anyways.

    Cusco, Northern Highlands, Peru
    Be sure to check out all of the ruins in and around Cusco. My favourite was saqsayhuaman, the Inca stonework is FLAWLESS - even more impressive than at Machu Picchu.
