August 23rd, 2018 Shintuya

Nice place, nice people. We paid 50sol p/p including three meals. Parking on the street next to the house. The road here is long, rough and full of curves but not so bad. At this time of the year all the streams were easy to cross. Only after heavy rain they might be a bit problematic. High clearance and good tyres are essential but 4x4 is not neccesery. Definitely not for big rigs.

August 6th, 2018 Cevicheria

Fresh ceviche and other seafood. Prices range 18-30 PEN. Delicious!
