Swimming in spring water of 39 degrees was a wonderful experience. The visit to the Colca Canyon was really extraordinary, what a great gap! We waited and were rewarded with condors, 6 of them! Consider ourselves boffers because we were told that things don't always go so well! The subsequent trip to Puno was ideal, saving an entire day!

Colca Canyon and condors should not be missed. The 4910 m high pass leads to Chivay, a sleepy mountain town. On the second day you drive down the canyon and back to Chivay for lunch. Back over the pass, then bus change and on to Puno. Very well organized. Book tickets and lunch right away.

There was no transfer i paid for. Called the office to resolve the issue but no one answered nor called back. Had to organize the transfer by myself as these guys do not know what means to work in turism.
