Customer Travel Tip: I recommend getting out and visiting the local wineries. The pisco tasting was great and I learned a lot about the local culture at the same time.

Liked: I liked the local museum and the winery tours.

Disliked: It was difficult to find open, Peruvian restaurants. Most restaurants were either closed at night or heavily commercialized.

Customer Travel Tip: Don't stay there, there's not much to see, it's an average city. You may as well get a 6 soles taxi ride to huacchina as soon as you arrive and stay there.

Liked: Huacchina was close.

Disliked: I didn't feel that safe. There was random guys knocking at my door at the hostel. I tired not to leave my room or just go to huacchina for the day.

30 Jul 2013

Customer Travel Tip: Sla Ica over of ga alleen even langs de zandduinen. Die zijn erg indrukwekkend.

Liked: De zandduinen die in de buurt liggen.

Disliked: Erg drukke stad. Veel stank van uitlaat gassen. Veel getoeter van autos. Onveilig. Bekende van ons ging even een sieraad kopen in een zij straatje en kon daar gelijk haar portemenee inleveren bij twee kerels. Ik raad aan Ica over te slaan en gelijk door te reizen naar Nazca bijvoorbeeld.
