Machu Picchu Guide

Sticky

When you say Peru, first thing that comes to most people’s mind is Machu Picchu. If you are a fan of mystery shows, you probably heard a lot of stories associating Machu Picchu into some out-of-this-world beings. The ruins are built with perfection and it remained undiscovered until 1911.  The fact that it was perched on the top of the mountains hidden away by the mist made it seem that it was not intended to be seen at all. Even the Spanish conquistadors never found this site. Until now, it remains a mind –boggling mystery and that made it very popular among individuals from allRead More →

Miraflores has undoubtedly become a popular destination for tourist who wishes to stay in Lima, Peru. As compared to other parts of Lima, Miraflores has a great western influence but what makes it stunning and vibrant is the six-mile stretch of parks situated along the cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The district also has a lot to offer when it comes to shopping, hotels, parks, beaches, restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs.

“A tiny oasis in Peru? For real?” It seems completely unreal but this tiny village sits right there at the Southern part of Peru 5 hours away from Lima. Although it is not the most inspiring place to visit in Peru, tourists flock there for two main reasons: sandboarding and dune buggy ride. I actually went to Huacachina because I’d really love to see the place in person but I didn’t have it in my mind to try any of these adrenaline inducing activities. The thought of rolling over the sand and swallowing mouthful of sand really scared me so I decided that maybe IRead More →

What I hate most about every trip are the long layovers. I had a 6-hour stop in Aruba on my way to Peru. Being a Philippine passport holder, I am required to apply for visa before arrival. However, since the trip was so sudden, I wasn’t able to do that at all. I landed in Aruba prepared to endure 6 hours of waiting until the unexpected happened. I was able to tour around the island, no need of visa! I got out from the airport and took a private driver who showed me around for the price of $45 per hour (standard rate). During theRead More →

Laguna 69 hike

With its lush green valleys and snow-peaked mountains, Peru is definitely one of the most sought-out destination for hiking. One of the most popular and iconic hikes is the Laguna 69 near the city of Huaraz. I ran into some photos of the lake while searching for Peru’s top attractions and I was really mesmerized by its beauty so off I went to hike the mountains of Peru just to get a glimpse of this glacial lake. Laguna 69 (English: Lake 69) is a turquoise lake in Peru’s Cordillera Blanca sitting at 4600 meters above sea level. It makes some people wonder but its name has noRead More →

Suriname is one of the least-traveled countries in South America but there are so much things to explore inside this small, tropical country especially its untouched natural wonders. I have stayed for almost three years already here but I’d say I haven’t learned everything yet about this greenest country on Earth. Suriname is ranked No. 1 by telegraph.co.uk as the world’s most tree-filled country with 95% covered in forest. Last 2015, I purposely flew all the way here for work and didn’t really bother to do much of an exploring until recently when we decided to tag along with some Surinamese friends to the forest, whichRead More →

Around 7% of Surinamese population are comprised of Chinese so it is not a surprised to find a lot of Chinese restaurants in the surrounding areas of the city. They serve different kinds of Chinese cuisines but when you say hot pot, one name comes up from all the locals here and that is Squeezy Hot Pot Restaurant.
