    1. Hi Jessie,
      Great feedback and comments about Peru!

      I stumbled upon your blog here because I’m looking for updates on how extensive the flooding in Aguas Calientes has affected.

      We’re visiting Peru next week. Part of our plans were to visit Machu Picchu and Puerto Maldonado (Eco Amazonia Lodge). But because Machu Picchu is out of commission, we find ourselves looking for alternatives.

      Do you know whether the Sacred Valley such as Ollantaytambo is still safe to visit? If not, we’re considering Lake Titicaca. Do you know what we should expect at Lake Titicaca and Puerto Maldonado?

      Any information is much appreciated!

      • Hi Mei, glad you made it here!

        I’ve heard that Ollantaytambo is still safe to visit, as is Pisac–also in the Sacred valley, really neat ruins there. The ruins in the hills just above Cusco are safe to visit, as well.

        Lake Titicaca is nice–if you do get there check out the Sillustani ruins, it’s a beautiful area that’s nearly free of tourists. I don’t know much about Puerto Maldonado, however….

        We’re in Lima right now, so if you’re going to be spending any amount of time here drop me a line (or if you have any more questions): jessiekwak @

        Have a great trip!
