Should I go to Barranco, Lima, Peru? If so, what should I do there at the end of April?
Skip to the mean if you don't want all my gibberish ramblings.
I need a vacation. In my previous AskMe post, I asked for suggestions for warm and hot places to go. The majority suggested Vegas and Cuba. Vegas doesn't appeal and Cuba seems to really only be cheap if you're traveling in pairs. When I try to fly for one, the single supplement adds 50% to the cost.
So, I did a search for a few vacation rental places and found this place
in Barranco, Lima, Peru, which I can rent for a whole week for $300 to $400.
But I know jackshit about Peru (or Cuba, for that matter, though I've obviously seen it in a gazillion movies).
The woman who owns the properties in Peru actually called me on her dime to talk about the place, but she's obviously biased. It did sound very nice and up my alley. She did mention that it's very busy around there right now and that that's not the norm. She said this was because of Apec
, though that apparently doesn't happen till November so I'm a little baffled.
I mainly want to get away from the distractions of Toronto (as well as the weather). I need some peace and quiet (though not constant) to finish a personal project by May 1.
Though the above is my main reason for going, I of course would like to do some fun things while on vacation. What would you suggest for that specific area and timeframe?
Some things that may affect your answer: I'm vegetarian. I don't drive.
