Very Important: Rains and Flooding Across Peru
The Government of Peru continues to assess the effects from unseasonably heavy inland rains
and associated flooding along the coastal areas of Peru. Rains are expected to continue for few
more weeks. The most widespread, severe effects are in the northwest of the country, in the
regions of Tumbes, Piura, Lambayeque, and La Libertad.
More concentrated incidents of flooding, mudslides, and inundated roads and bridges have occurred
around Lima and the Ica Region. Some roads in the central highlands, especially in the regions of Ancash
and Junin, have experienced travel delays and disruptions. Areas in the south of the country around Cusco
and Arequipa have been affected less severely by the rains than areas farther north. Our Tours and treks in Cusco have not been affected at all, the trains are running as normal, tours visiting sites and we don´t have delays neither cancelations of our trips.

NOTE for the months of June 20 to end of Oct the price is $15 extra per person and even more expensive between the 25th of July and 1st of Aug so not recommended over those dates.
Situated on the westcoast of Peru between Arequipa and Lima the Nazca Lines & Pre-Inca Cemetery of Chauchilla are a must if you are traveling this area.
This visit can be combined as well with Ballestas Islands, Ica and Huacachina lagune.
Is it for me?
This is an excellent way to travel from Arequipa to Lima if you have time and want something interesting to beak up the long bus journey. Needless to say an overnight bus is never the nicest way to travel but they do enable you to sleep during the less interesting part of the travelling time and so keep your precious hours for the the lines and Nazca cementery tour.

Nazca Lines.- believed to be drawn by the Nazca culture. They are composed of several hundred figures cover designs as simple as lines to complex zoomorphic, and geometric fitomorfas are drawn in the earth's surface. The amazing thing is that these lines can only be seen in its entirety from the air, flying over the desert, which has raised major questions about the intentions and skills of their builders.
The Cementery of Chauchilla For many years this pre Inca place was looted by treasure hunters, who ransacked the place taking away all the treasures the mummies kept in their tombs for centuries.
