Why you should not do the Inca Trail in January

The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is one of the most famous treks in the world. We did it in early January 2017, during the rainy season. Whilst we loved our experience a great deal, we think you should avoid doing the Inca Trail in January, or at least carefully consider the risks. The weather in Peru’s Sacred Valley has two seasons: wet and dry. Wet season is between October to April and the dry season from May to September. February is considered the worst month with very angry storms, heavy downpour and mudslides, so this is the one month the...

Gay Arequipa: our guide to the best gay bars, clubs and hotels

Arequipa is Peru’s second city with just under 1 million inhabitants. It is nicknamed the White City because it is almost completely built out of a white volcano stone called sillar. Most come to Arequipa as the base for treks to Colca Canyon, one of the deepest canyons in the world. The White City is also one of the few Peruvian cities outside of Lima which has a gay scene, albeit very small, with a handful of bars and gay owned businesses worth checking out.

Gay travel guide to Cusco and the Sacred Valley

“Stefan look: it’s Cusco gay pride – rainbow flags everywhere!!!” Seby wasn’t wrong. One of the first things you notice arriving in Cusco are all the Inca rainbow-like flags flying proudly all across the city. But to Seb’s disappointment, it has nothing to do with the LGBT community. This is the Inca flag, which has an extra blue stripe added. Cusco is famous for being the historic capital of the Inca Empire from the 1200s until the mid 1500s when the Spanish invaded. It’s now Peru’s most popular draw, with 2 million visitors every year. It’s a must on everyone’s...
