  • Know that it is the first culture of America and the second in the world... reason enough to know; This close to Lima, the well signposted path both Lima Caral and within the archaeological rest.

  • I have followed the development of this archaeological site of its beginnings, for this trip we stayed and spent the night in Barranca, the known and traditional hotel Chavin, very early to leave course to the Citadel, we had commented that the path from the Pan-American Highway had improved, but that was true in the first sections, since it is fairly impaired says that by the phenomenon of child... Arriving at the Citadel was change, everything is very well signposted a parking for automobiles, a small Restaurant area or parador of meals, a shop of gifts and of course the box office, that although it has a one-time fee considered a differential for children. The Citadel is very well conserved, signposted, with signs identifying the main squares and places, while income not obligated to hire a guide, the option is the expected to be more than 20 pax or pay for a private visit, the price is 20 soles and is worth the p ENA do so normally guides are students or students of archaeology who work and live very close to the full in the House of the archaeologist I commented on some special dates there is one night visit, I didn't appreciate it but the pictures they look spectacular, well worth it back again by the spectacle of light and sound

  • We take a day off from work to meet Caral... America's oldest city, is good to score (especially for we bring foreign tourists or like me not are Peruvians who live here) that it is a PRe Inca culture, pre ceramics, orient our friend foreigners that bears no resemblance to Machu Pichu or Citadel as well... Impressive and good level of preservation, bring sunscreen, water and a hat. The tour lasts about an hour. The guide is in Spanish.
