Re: SIMILAR TO SAN DIEGO???

Well, both San Diego and Lima have highs of 65 in the winter. The difference is that San Diego is bright and sunny, while Lima is drenched in fog - there is a big difference in comfort and mood. And of course Tarapoto is a crime-ridden drug-trafficking center, while San Diego is one of the safest ci...

Re: Is it practical to rent unfurnished without a car?

Thanks, everyone. It definitely seems like it's an option, though still a downside due to the loss of flexibility. We ended up taking a different furnished one this time.

Buying return ticket for >6 months out w/ tourist visa

I am moving to Peru soon, and my plan is to go on a tourist visa and to just pop over the border every six months.
