I am going to Lima on September and I would like to do from 1-3 days of experience in the Huaraz City. I don't know if I should do it the last days of the week that I'll be in Lima before departing to Cusco or wait to finish South Region of Peru and then finish in Huaraz before heading home.
I'm planning to get to Huaraz with Cruz del Sur, but from there, I'm lost.
I'm on a budget, but I would like to see the Natural sites of the Andean Region, snow, trek for while and pretty much enjoy the area.
Is there transportation around there?
Is the area safe?
Can I join groups while staying at a hostel?
Is it expensive to do a tour in Huaraz? (Like Machu Picchu)
The focus here is to see the basic beautiful sites and don't spend much.
Thanks everyone! :)
