    It is an excellent family adventure to learn about the beginning of the Peruvian culture. In my particular case I left Lima with own mobility. Here I recommend you visit Caral route along the river Supe(ojo sólo se puede en épocas de río bajo) I took is as output path. Otherwise is not other than the route by the chicken farms. Warning there is no track, it is a very bad trail. Here is observed the change of geographical area and as contrasts with the Green Valley desert. In the archaeological site is paid adult entry 11 Suns, children 1 Sun. Only allowing entry in groups and with guide, if you are a family or large group can hire their own guide, cost 20 Suns group. Eye for control of visits are groups of 20 people and then you enter. Recommend to first make the Tour guide then can go to food court because there are also crafts and lots of information to review after Tour. It is hot and cold depending on time of year, care for the children.

    It is a place steeped in history, the City mas antigua de America. This 3 hours from Lima to the North. Tickets are purchased in the place and there are internal guidelines.

    Was the 2nd civilization in the entire world, 5,000 years BC !!! Don;t forget water, sunblocker, cap. I guess should be better lunch in Barranca or other city. You can find lunch in Caral.  more »
