I'm Mikey Blount Travel Advisor

I was born in Prague to a Czech mother and an American father, growing up I often moved between the two countries, which fueled my passion for travel from a young age. While studying for a psychology degree in the UK, I used part-time work to finance my travels in Europe and Asia. However, after a two-week field trip working on housing issues in Salvador, Brazil, I became hooked on Latin American culture, food, and lifestyle.

Some tips and recommedations when traveling to Peru:

Many travelers consider skipping a visit to the Peruvian capital, Lima. As Peru’s gastronomical hub, Lima is worth a few days for anyone eager to try the best of Peruvian cuisine. Home to almost a third of Peru’s population, this megacity is sure to stimulate your senses.


When arriving in the Andes, give yourself enough time to acclimatize before embarking on any strenuous activities. Spend your first day relaxing and soaking in the atmosphere.


If you know you are prone to experience altitude sickness, consider spending your first night in the Sacred Valley. It’s at a lower altitude than Cusco, making it much easier to adjust. \n


Travel is about trying new experiences, so don’t be afraid to try out your Spanish. Locals appreciate any effort made by visitors, even if it's just a few words. In return, you may just be rewarded with a heartwarming Peruvian smile.
