Choquequirao was one of my highlights of my whole SA-trip! The way to get there is tough, the days hot, the ways steep, but it`s definetly worth it - only a handful of people are visiting it per day, and only about 30% is uncovered...More

The place may be bigger than Machu Picchu, the ruins less explored and less restorated. The beauty is in the trek and the visit of the ruins. I was there at one moment completely alone, so there is no comparison with his more popular brother...More

Hi. We went with Bioandean expeditions. The guides, food & organisation was excellent, bearing in mind that you're not going for the 5star accomodations. They were a bit highly priced but it was an important part of the trip... More

Hi, By guided, do you mean you hired mules and guide but planned your meals, tents, etc. or you booked a full tour with everything included? For the former, we payed $50 per day for the guide and $50 per mule.
