Looking for a nanny

Can anyone out there recommend a good nanny with references for a newborn? Or suggest the best way to find one?

Many thanks

Re: outrageous customs of Peru. Complete denial of evidence.

My advice is not to ship things via DHL/Fedex. It's so rare to hear of a smooth transaction and it's always the same thing - they want ridiculous sums of money to release packages. Vic has the right idea, call INDECOPI on them. I've always had things shipped via US mail through SerPost and have rec...

Re: Anyone know of a good short-term apartment rental?

My parents are coming to visit for two months in July and we're looking for a decent short-term apartment rental, preferably in Barranco. Seems to be a lot of overpriced stuff online, almost all in Miraflores. Anyone have any good tips for us? Adds on websites are aimed at gringos so they are gring...

Re: Thoughts on IVF In Lima

What is the price range for IVF here in Lima? Can you give us an idea? It worked out between $5,000 and $6,000 for us. Lots of drugs and appointments. This is not bad internationally ... espec compared with the US, where it can be $20,000 or more a go; or private clinics in the UK... lots of women ...

Re: Thoughts on IVF In Lima

Hi, Bit late in seeing your note but I highly recommend Dr Ernesto Escudero, who works out of Clinica Miraflores. He speaks fluent English and is abreast of all the latest thinking in this area. I have done the treatment once before in "the first world" so I felt I could compare the care ...

Re: Moving from house but with problems from owner

Thanks so much for the advice. I think I will do as you suggest to avoid further nastiness. You're right, I did get off better than some people, and have learned a lesson for next time. It just makes me so sad that this kind of behaviour is so rampant in Peruvian society. The idea of community, and ...

Re: Moving from house but with problems from owner

I wish I'd known about the Sunat tax thing... we got completely gouged by our former landlords, it was a right mess. We had always had a good relationship with them and the apartment was in very good shape so I couldn't bring myself to withhold that last month rent. Boy have I learned my lesson. Whe...

Re: Telefonica nightmare / Any consumer leverage?

Wow! Thank you for this info. I HATE telefonica. They are despicable, dishonest, rude lazy ... well, I can't use the word I am thinking of here. I have had many bad experiences that I won't bore everyone with here. I'm sure we are all victims! This is the first info I have seen for how to lodge any ...

Re: Anyone know where to get high quality vitamins?

Though I agree that a balanced diet is important, there are many reasons why one would choose to take vitamin supplements. That said, I don't think criticizing the OP provides any useful answers relevant to their question nor is any medical condition he or she may have any of your business. It is a...

Anyone know where to get high quality vitamins?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew where to get very high quality vitamins in Lima. The ones I have brought from overseas have almost run out and most over the counter versions are not so great. Particularly looking for very good omega-3 oil and super strength multi-vitamins. The ones I have now wer...

Can anyone recommend an IVF specialist in Lima?

Hi all, I was just wondering if anyone here has had experience with fertility specialists in Lima, and if they could recommend a doctor for IVF. Does anyone know much about Peruvian expertise in this field, or is it better to think about going overseas? It's harder than usual trying to figure out su...
