Land trip to Cuzco from Quito
Couldnt be a better team to share this trip!
We drove from Quito down to Mancora, Chiclayo, Trujillo, Lima, Ica, Nazca, Arequipa, Puno and Cuzco in 17days, Visited lots of wonderful places... a trip to remember for ever!!!
Quito - Mancora (16 hours)
The Adventure began!! A group of three Adventure Lifers woke up at 01h00 am to start a super long journey through all the Ecuadorian territory to cross the border on a 4x4 at noon. Ecuador is a beautiful small country that allow this kind of wonders!! By the aftertoon our team was already in Mancora, a nice beach in the northern area of Peru. …

Visit to the Señor de Sipan Museum
Chiclayo - Trujillo

Trujillo - Lima
This was a long journey for the drivers, fortunately I took my flight from Quito and in a couple of hours I meet them in Lima. I felt so lucky, my cousin, her husband and my husband were waiting for me at the airport ready to show me a little bit of the city. We visited the Barranco, a good area to visit at night. We drove around the beautiful …
Lima - Ica
No one was ready for an early morning so we started our day at 09h00. Belen, my cousin, picked us up in her car and drove us to the old town... Gosh I was glad we were not driving there! Driving in Quito is a children game compared with that!!!
It was good to see this part of Lima, it is beautiful. I particulary enjoyed the view of the …
Ica - Nazca
After a relaxing night, we woke up to drive down to Nazca and make the arrangements for the flight over the lines. The lines were amazing, but the experience of flying on small craft that shakes your stomach to the limit was the highlight for us!
After the flight we visited the Chauchilla necropolis, there are about twelve opem-top graves with …
Nazca - Arequipa
The highways in Peru are great ones, which you really value when you travel long distances.
The most part of this day we spended travelling by the cost line, I should say it was still scary to see the sea right by the highway a lot of meters down....
In the way we stoped at Camana where we found lots of Arequipeños enjoying the beach.
This city constructed mainly with a volcanic stone welcome visitors making you feel completely safe to explore.
It looked amazing for us so we deceided to take a city tour and enjoyed both the city by itself as well as the country side around, two completely diferent aspects of the same city.
Arequipa left in us a good taste of the Peruvian …
Arequipa - Puno
After saying bye to Arequipa and our great hotel there, we head up to Puno.
The way provides amazing landscapes, maybe the one that was saved in our memories was a lake with so many flamingos on it.
When we arrived to Puno our highlands hearts realized that were not ready for this altitute, fortunately as this is a very common issue for …
