I have done Loja - Piura - Tarapoto by bus before. It's a long ride but it's not that bad. The border crossing is super simple and safe. I think the San Ignacio rough is slightly shorter, but a little more complicated because you have to switch buses a few times then walk across the border. With all that it probably ends up being longer, so I just went the simpler route. over 4 years ago
im traveling to cusco, solo and on june 1st, im hoping to find a guid to machu picchu while in cusco is that a decent plan?
Well the Inca Trail is already sold out until October, so you have to do one of the alternatives. There are many different options. So mainly depends on how you want to spend your money. Theres one way that takes about a day and will only cost 10 soles, or you can do longer treks that can cost hundreds of dollars through tour companies. Depends on what you want. Peru is amazing! I'm going back in a few days. over 4 years ago
