Hens and Bucks


Case has been looking into ideas around our hens and bucks celebrations before the wedding for those who have the extra travel time!

Ideas include...

* Cusco
- This would be the easiest place to groove because everyone will be coming here anyway for the wedding.
- As it was once the heart of the Incan empire, Cusco offers plenty in the way of ruins and other sights.
- There is plenty of accomodation options.
- A lot of outdoor activites like; white water rafting, mountain biking, trekking, horse-riding, para-gliding,
- On the Monday before our wedding, Cusco has it's El Senor de los Temblores festival (The Lord of the Earthquakes).

* North Coast Peru - Mancora (Far north tip of Peru)
- A popular beach resort.
- Good surf year round
- Rent off road bikes, jet skies, surf lessons, windsurf, hot springs
- Good night life.
- The food here is mostly seafood, fresh, straight off the boat.
- Accomodation ranges from plush resorts to beachside bungalows & beachfront shacks.
- But before you get too excited, it takes something like 16 to 18 hours to get there by bus from Lima. If we take a plane and then bus or taxi it will take 4-5 hrs and cost anywhere from $100 to $400 to get there.

* Lima
- Most peeps will be heading through here to get to Cusco so it won't be out of the way.
- Being Peru's capital and biggest city, there are plenty of good restaurants, accomodation and bars.
- Lima is set on the beach, and is supposed to have good surf, although i think the water is cold. Nearby surfing hot spots have hostels near the beach.
- It is the best place for Peruvian cuisine, and also has fresh, cheap seafood.
- Para gliding, cycling, horse-riding, bull fighting, soccer.

* Huaraz & Cordilleras - Adventure capital
- Huaraz is the Andean adventure capital.
- Trekking, mountaineering, mountain biking
- Lots of bars, accommodation, good restaurants.
- Bus from Lima - 7 - 8 hours

* Arequipa - South PERU
- Flights from Lima & Cusco
- 6 hour bus to Puno / Lake Titicaca
- Peru's most stylish city; good nightlife
- Surrounded by active volcanoes, thermal springs, high altitude deserts and worlds deepest canyons
- Horse riding, climbing, mountain biking, trekking, rafting
- Return from Cusco to Arequipa $240 (LAN)

We'd appreciate any ideas to flow through here. If you're planning to come this if for you as well so let's make it FUN!

Is this a combined Hens/Bucks? Or are we going different places? Bags the best place for the bucks!!

I will vote later. But I like adventure.

Not sure really. Depends on what each party wants to do but if we do end up staying at the same city, we'll be staying in different areas.
