PRE CUZCO & MACHU PICCHU - ST - CASA ANDINA

PRE CUZCO & MACHU PICCHU - ST - CASA ANDINA

Delve into the sacred and mysterious landmarks of the Inca Empire, including famed Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas, and other ancient temples, all precisely constructed without mortar

DAY 1 - Saturday, May 3rd, 2014

After flying into Lima International Airport, you will be met by a representative and transferred to the Casa Andina Private Collection Miraflores, a four-star hotel in the heart of Lima.

Afterwards, enjoy dinner on your own in the hotel or in one of the nearby restaurants and then retire for the evening.

DAY 2 - Sunday, May 4th, 2014

Much of the early morning is devoted to the flight from Lima to Cusco, once the capital of the Inca Empire. After arriving in Cusco and checking into the Libertador Palacio del Inka, you will enjoy free time to acclimate to the elevation (11,152 feet above sea level) and explore a bit on your own.

In the early afternoon, you will embark on a city tour of Cusco, starting with the sacred site of Koricancha. Here, you will admire the lovely Dominican Convent of Santo Domingo that was built on the foundations of the Temple of the Sun, the most sumptuous temple in the Inca Empire. The curved, mortar-less masonry wall at the west end of the church is considered to be one of the greatest existing examples of Inca stonework.

Continuing on, you will see the splendid Baroque-style Cusco Cathedral, built in the mid-1500s on the foundations of an Inca palace. Many of the stones used in its construction were looted from the nearby Sacsayhuaman fortress, your next stop.

Strategically located on a hill overlooking Cusco, the fortress was constructed without mortar like many other Inca structures. Yet the enormous stones (some weighing 200 tons) of the remaining walls fit so tightly that not even a thin blade of grass can slide between them. The craftsmanship is a stunning example of the Inca's sophisticated construction techniques and architectural skills.

Nearby, you will see other Inca landmarks such as the Temple at Qenquo, named for its zig-zag canal, a shrine dedicated to Mother Earth, and the pinkish stone fortress of Puka Pukara.

After returning to your hotel, you will spend the evening at your leisure. As you will be dining on your own, you will receive a dinner certificate for a three-course meal and drink. The "dine around" certificate can be used at several participating restaurants.

DAY 3 - Monday, May 5th, 2014

Following breakfast, you will drive to Cusco's train station and board the Vistadome Train, which features large panoramic windows for excellent viewing of the passing landscape.

Upon arriving in Aguas Calientes, you will drive to the ruins of Machu Picchu to explore this famous "Lost City of the Incas." Constructed as a royal retreat for the Inca emperor Pachacuti in the 1400s, Machu Picchu was abandoned less than 100 years later, its population probably devastated by smallpox. Because the Spanish conquistadors never found this hidden city, Bingham discovered it largely intact.

Architectural highlights include the Temple of the Sun, designed much like the one in Cusco, several other temples, hundreds of terraces, and a mysterious carved stone situated on a raised platform that towers above the plaza. The stone may have been used for astronomical observations, but no one knows for certain. The Inca had no written language, so there is no record of Machu Picchu's ultimate purpose. Scholars are still striving to uncover clues as to its mysteries.

After visiting Machu Picchu, you will enjoy a relaxing lunch at the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge Hotel at the site's entrance, and then board the Vistadome Train for a scenic ride back to Cusco. Upon arriving, you will transfer back to the Libertador Palacio del Inka for the evening and dinner on your own.

DAY 4 - Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

After flying back to Lima, you will transfer to the port of Callao to embark the ship.

Pre-Cruise Land Tours



PRE - THE ALMIGHTY AMAZON

PRE - THE ALMIGHTY AMAZON

Fly inland to Iquitos, where you will head even deeper into the rainforest, exploring by boat, along a soaring canopy walkway, and by walking a jungle trail to observe the wildlife and exotic vegetation.

DAY 1

After flying into Lima International Airport, you will be met by a representative and transferred to the Libertador Lima Hotel, a four-star hotel in the heart of Lima.

Afterwards, enjoy dinner on your own in the hotel or in one of the nearby restaurants and then retire for the evening.

DAY 2

After transferring from the hotel to the airport, you will fly to Iquitos. Following a brief but informative orientation tour of the city, Peru's primary port along the Amazon River, you will board a boat for a leisurely 25-mile journey downstream. Along the way, you will pass through one of the country's most biologically diverse regions. Rainforest lines the riverbanks and wildlife abounds.

Within an hour or so, you will arrive at Ceiba Tops, a magnificent lodge named for the giant "ceiba" or kapok tree in the private reserve adjoining it. After settling in over lunch, you will head into the rainforest on a guided walking tour.

The lush protected landscape supports countless species, including colorful parrots, playful monkeys, and exotic reptiles and amphibians. While there is no telling what you will see, you can be sure it will be spectacular. You may notice blooming orchids and epiphytes or "air plants" clinging to many of the towering trees for support, as they draw their nutrients from the rain.

Following your walk through the rainforest, you will return to the lodge for dinner and a relaxing evening.

DAY 3

You will spend today in one of two ways, whichever you find more fascinating.

The first option involves a morning boat ride on the Amazon, where you may see dolphin frolicking and a variety of raucous birds. Upon arriving in the rainforest village of Yagua, you will meet the native people who explain how early explorers and modern civilization have affected their culture over the centuries. There will also be an opportunity for you to observe the local crafts and enjoy a demonstration of the blowgun, which is still used for hunting on occasion.

Then, following lunch back at Ceiba Tops, you will walk to the neighboring town of Indiana. Originally a Franciscan mission, it has grown into a large community with a genuine jungle flair.

The second option is an excursion by boat to the Explornapo Lodge, where you will head into the rainforest on the Canopy Walkway. Soaring more than 100 feet above the jungle floor, the walkway offers an unparalleled view of the rainforest from the treetops. There is no better vantage point for observing wildlife and the immensity of the landscape. The suspended walkway spans 14 huge rainforest trees and stretches nearly one-third of a mile long, making one of the world's lengthiest canopy walkways. The walkway is accessible to everyone and requires no special skills or equipment to fully enjoy it.

Then, following lunch at the Explornapo Lodge, you will walk to anearby Ethnobotanical Garden, which is usually tended by a local shaman and his apprentices. They will explain how many of the hundreds of different plants here are used by the locals, often for medicinal purposes.

Regardless of which option you choose, you will also enjoy leisure time at Ceiba Tops and a wonderful farewell dinner, accompanied by a dance presentation.

DAY 4

You will spend much of the morning on a walking tour of the rainforest or a boat ride on the Amazon River. Again, it's your choice.

Afterwards, you will return to Iquitos by boat and then fly back to Lima. Upon arriving, you will transfer to the port of Callao to embark the ship to begin your cruise.

Overland Program Step by Step: The order of sites visited may vary to avoid congestion. The flights and times indicated are approximate, given here for general reference purposes, and are subject to change.

EXTRA NIGHTS: If you book extra nights through the cruise line, you will be met per the flight details provided and transferred to the Libertador Lima Hotel. Check-in time is 2:00pm. Meals other than breakfast, as well as activities are on your own until Day 2 of the program. Please ensure that the cruise line has your up-to-date flight details.

Day 1 (for guests not purchasing extra nights)

After arriving at the Lima International Airport, you will transfer to the Libertador Lima Hotel, where you will spend a relaxing evening. Today, meals are on your own.

Although every effort will be made for your room to be available before the 2:00pm check in, this cannot be guaranteed. If you are arriving early, you may wish to book an extra night to ensure that a room is ready upon your arrival.

Expected Weather:

The rainforest surrounding Iquitos lacks a specific rainy or dry season. However, there is a high-water period (December through May), which is caused by snowmelt from the Andes as summer begins, combined with rain in the upper jungle. The low-water period begins in June and ends in November. While the water level can fluctuate more than 45 feet, the warm and humid climate remains relatively constant throughout the year, giving this area its botanical category of "Everwet Tropical Forest." Normal daytime highs are 88°F and nighttime lows are 72°F.

What to Bring:

Keep your baggage to a comfortable minimum. Pack light with drip-dry cotton or safari clothing, including one long-sleeved shirt and sweater. Hiking shoes or sneakers are recommended, as jungle trails are frequently muddy. Also bring a plastic raincoat or poncho, wide-brimmed hat, insect repellent, sunglasses, sunscreen, binoculars, camera, and a small flashlight.

Currency: Nuevos Soles

Electricity:

In Ceiba Tops, the electricity is 220 V throughout the lodge with one 110 V outlet in each room. In the other lodges, there is very limited 220V current for charging batteries and only during certain hours. Most electronics (such as laptops, cameras, cell phones and iPods) can be safely charged using 220 V current, but please check your owner's manuals first.

Luggage:

For the flight to Iquitos, each guest may bring 2 pieces of checked luggage with a combined weight of 23kg / 50lbs. Carry on luggage is restricted to 1 piece per person maximum 8 kgs / 17 lbs.

However, please note that each guest may only take 33 pounds (15 kilograms) of luggage on the boats to the lodges. If your luggage weighs more, plan to store the extra amount in Iquitos in the Explorama office in the secure storage area until returning. Please ensure that all luggage is properly tagged with your name and cabin number. Any excess or overweight luggage fees are the responsibility of each guest.

Please note: Land programs that encompass multiple days ashore customarily include extensive and prolonged activity, while those of shorter durations typically have more moderate activity levels. However, each program varies and participants should be prepared to negotiate a mixture of surfaces, which may include inclines, cobblestones, sand, and gravel or natural paths. There may also be a need to climb steps or stairs on occasion. Due to the nature of this program, guests who utilize a wheelchair and those with mobility concerns are advised to check with the cruise line in advance to see if any portion of the tour program may not be considered suitable for their individual situation.
