Peru & Galapagos

Anyone going on this trip in August 2014?.


Anyone going on this trip or if anyone has any advice re this trip we would be great to hear from you.




We're going! Hoping to catch up with anyone else going before we set off in 7 weeks time.....

Hello all,
My name is Mike; my wife Chris and I are on this trip, leaving Heathrow 6th August (Itinerary B). This is the first time I have ever done a long haul flight, so the experience of long haul, let alone South America is all new to me.
We are looking forward to meeting you all, particularly as I read it is only really best to look round Cuzco and Quito in groups re our safety etc.
Has anyone worked out what is the best way to carry currency yet..?, although it appears US dollars in one form or another is the way to go.
It would be really nice to hear from you before we go. (*-*)

Unfortunately I won't meet you Mike as I arrive in Lima on 23 August. However US$ is best, carry in a money belt & don't advertise your wealth. I did this in Vietnam last year & had no problems. You can't rely on availability of ATM's & credit cards are not always accepted. Have a good trip!
