We've just finished using a man named Hermes Engenio Hernandez to paint our sala/comedor and two hallways plus a hnadful of interior doors. We found him as he had been hired the previous week to paint our entire building, inside and out. After approving of his work we ask him for a quote. He gave us a verbal quote (this was sufficient for us) and stuck to it. He as well as his helpers did great work and didn't leave until we were satisfied with the job. His prices we the lowest we had been quoted of three different painters and he for certain did not give us the "gringo" rate. He only speaks spanish that I know.
If you are looking for a cheap but quality painter, I would absolutely recomend him. He is willing to work anywhere in Peru he says, were there is work he will go. Seems like a pretty humble guy, we'll use him again without a doubt.
