Ask the experts

My wife and I are interested on a long trip to Peru, including Lake Titicaca and Machu Picchu, but also Ecuador, including the Amazon Rainforest and the Galápagos Islands. We wondered whether it would be better to make one trip or two dependiing on the best travel period for each area. We're both over 65s but reasonably fit.

Asked by A R

Thank you for contacting us about your possible trip to Peru and Ecuador, we certainly can help you.

Peru and Ecuador combines very nicely as they are next to each either and there are plenty of flights between both countries, if you can allow at least 3 weeks for this trip, I think is better to do it in one trip.

The warmer months for Galapágos is December until March, the water is clear with good visibility specially if you want to do snorkelling , these months however, are the wettest for Peru as it’s their summer and rainy season (February particularly).

To compromise for these 2 countries, I think that April-May are very good for both.

You can see the boats we work with in Galapagos as they vary in size from small, medium and large and let us know what’s your preference.

Have a look also one of our trips that combines Peru and Galapagos called Peru Wildlife: Pristine Amazon and enchanted Galápagos

I hope this information is useful, feel free to contact us on 020 8747 8315 or enquire online.

Day of the Dead

Dia de los Muertos - Day of the Dead

1 - 2 Nov 2017

All of Mexico stops during the first two days of November for a nationwide communion with the dead, known locally as ‘Día de los Muertos'.

This is however a more joyful occasion than you might expect, as it’s both a remembrance of loved ones and a celebration of the eternal cycle of life and death. Perhaps the best place to see the celebrations is the island of Janitzio on Lake Pátzcuaro, where the bell at the entrance of the local cemetery rings all night long, calling the souls to return and join in the ceremony.
