Our Sales Manager, Meg, took a trip down to Baja Sur, Mexico in November. This trip was originally booked for April but like so many of you, she also had to postpone. Given that Meg and her crew were going to visit an uninhabited island in the Sea of Cortez, they felt that this would be a perfectly safe destination to visit during the pandemic. Mexico currently doesn’t have any entry requirements regarding Covid and there are many nonstop flights from various cities throughout the US making it one of the easiest destinations to visit right now. Here’s her firsthand account of their sunny getaway!
There are many ways to visit the famous ruins at the Machu Picchu Sanctuary in Peru. Trekkers can hike and camp along the full 25-mile Inca Trail that leads into the Sanctuary. Those who enjoy hiking, but don’t want to camp, can do just the final stretch of the Inca Trail as a one day hike. And non-hikers can visit the Machu Picchu Sanctuary by train and shuttle bus. Machu Picchu is the name of the Incan archaeological complex that sits on a hill above the Urubamba river and the small town of Machu Picchu Pueblo (previously called Aguas Calientes). The town lies at an altitude of 6700 feet above sea level, and the Machu Picchu ruins are perched at 7972 feet. The ruins are nestled between two peaks, Huayna Picchu Mountain and Machu Picchu Mountain, and both peaks can be climbed by visitors if you have the required hiking permits in advance. In this blog post, we’ll share some tips on how to choose between these two spectacular Machu Picchu hikes, if you’d like to include one during your Machu Picchu Tour.
