Re: Dentists in Lima

I chose not to go with Peru Dental. It was 240 Soles for the cleaning and "basic check up", and the full diagnosis and 3D exrays were another 396 Soles, or 634 Soles, which is a LOT of money in Peru, and much, much higher than I've heard other dentists charge. I was confused with what the ...

Re: Dentists in Lima

I didn't have a good experience with Dr. Sylvia Pflucker and Smiles Peru. The front desk staff didn't speak English and I thought they would. There was time for a video with Larry King explaining dental tourism, and a sales pitch for a lot of dental work including a filling that my previous dentist ...

Re: Dentists in Lima

I saw Dr Eduardo Montenegro Soria for a cleaning last week. It was the most careless, thoughtless work I've ever had done on my mouth. He did a cleaning in literally a little over ten minutes with no polishing. He jabbed the electric cleaning implement in my gums a number of times, even after I aske...

Re: Where to buy grass fed beef, lamb, free range chicken??

I just went to La Universidad Agraria La Molina and from my understanding they don't have organic chicken, and for sure they don't have organic turkey, eggs, or yogurt. I didn't ask about the beef (although I did see organic beef at the Wongs at Ovalo Gutierrez). The man behind the counter at La Mo...

Re: Where to buy grass fed beef, lamb, free range chicken??

I think a lot of people assume Peru is organic. I thought that when I first came here. I found that to be very untrue for most places. From a lot of reading and talking to people Peru has a lot of pesticides from China, cheap toxic pesticides that are outlawed in other countries. I thought maybe in ...

Rimless Frames for glasses, Silloutes frames

Hi Everyone,

I've been looking all over for rimless frames for a new pair of glasses. Does anyone know of a store that has a large selection of rimless frames, silloute frames, etc?

Thanks,
Jeff

Nia, 5 Rhythms dance, ecstatic dance, authentic movment

Hi Everyone, I've been living in Peru for a year in the jungle in a little town called Contamana. I’m in Miraflores now and will be here a few more months. Does anyone know of any Nia dance classes, 5 rhythms groups or ecstatic dance groups, or any authentic movement groups? Or can anyone recommend ...

Re: Self Service Laundry

Hello, Here's the scoop on coin laundry. As people mentioned there's one on the corner of Grimalde Del Solar / Schell in Miraflores. That's a little east of Benevides and a few blocks north of Larco. As of 2016 it's 10 soles to wash 10 soles to dry for a smaller mid sized top load. I think they have...
