After all the positive comments we‘d received about the Iguazu Falls it was the next priority on our bucket list. Initially we planned to take the bus from Buenos Aires but later decided to take a flight to Cataratas del Iguazú International Airport in Argentina.The trip to Iguazu Falls was another of the highlights of our round the world trip. The cost well worth this unforgettable experience.
Arequipa Peru, also known as the “White City”, is the second largest city in Peru and full of interesting history. Situated in the central area at an altitude of 2 400 metres it has pleasant year round weather, beautiful old buildings and is a central hub between the ocean desert and the tropical Amazon.
We arrived in Uyuni the day before setting out with Perla da Bolivia - our choice of the many Salar de Uyuni tours.
Uyuni is a desolate town – a far cry from the glory mining days many years ago. Added to the dust and desolation there was a biting cold wind!
Instead of flying (and seeing nothing of the country) we decided to take the PeruHop bus through southern Peru from Lima into La Paz Bolivia.
After making all the pickups we left Lima on a mild and misty morning. As we drove through areas of Miraflores and Barranco our Peru Hop guide for this trip, Walter, told us stories of some of the history of Peru.
With our second visit to Peru we decided to enjoy some of the Peru tourist attractions in southern Peru. A month earlier we’d done the trip to Machu Picchu via Cusco and Lima and realised that Peru had many other places to visit.
We highly recommend PeruHop and BoliviaHop as our experience with them was memorable. The company is well managed and you get the feeling that they really care about their customers … the result is a memorable experience.
