Accommodation and food is cheap and establishments are cozy. From Arequipa you shouldn’t miss the excursion to Colca Canyon, one of the deepest in the world.

The Titicaca, at 3820 m altitude, is the highest navigable lake worldwide. With more than 170 km in length, is also the largest in South America. Because of the altitude, the sky is clear and its blue waters offer an impressive look.
