Customer Travel Tip: If you choose to travel to Arequipa, be prepared to leave the city for several days as most of the activities: Canyon del Colca, Misti, etc., require excursions so allow yourself time.

Liked: Lovely center of city and places to stroll.

Customer Travel Tip: By all means, go to the Colca Canyon

Liked: The surroundings are amazing. The nature is very impressive and there are great treks to do.

Disliked: It's a regular city, not much to see in it aside from the Plaza de Armas. The city tour is not really worth it... it's better to do a free walking tour.
