Laguna Azul – Laguna Sauce (Sawsiqucha) and Las Jawas Lodge

Laguna Azul – Laguna Sauce (Sawsiqucha) and Las Jawas Lodge

One of the most visited tourist places in Tarapoto (the article on this tropical paradise is available HERE) is the Blue Lagoon, which gained its name thanks to the fact that when the sun is shining the waters of the lagoon turn blue. The trip to the destination is an amazing experience, seeing the nature around and crossing the Huallaga river, which forms a part of the Amazon basin, on a simple wooden ferry.

Tarapoto – The Tropical Paradise that Will Make You Feel Alive 

The Peruvian Amazonian jungle is a travel dream of many. It is quite something to experience. Except for the tribal communities and various rituals, you may enjoy pleasant climate, welcoming people, coconut water for 2 soles, great fruits and veggies, beautiful natural sceneries, waterfalls, lagoons, and easy-going laid-back lifestyle that will make you forget the world is going through a pandemic.

Chachapoyas, the Gate to the Amazon Basin, the high jungle (selva alta) which combines features of jungle and mountains, will stun you with its natural beauty and history.

New Year´s Eve in the Tranquillity and Beauty of IntiRumi Inn, Caraz

While I spent the New Year´s Eve of 2019 at one of the Peruvian beaches in the real party mode, I have chosen something completely different for 2020 – an intimate, rustic and peaceful atmosphere of the organic boutique hotel and restaurant IntiRumi Inn in Caraz, Peru, flanked by the magnificent and highest pinnacles of the Cordilleras Blancas and Negras, forming the profound valley called the Callejon de Huaylas.

Magic Realism II

Magic Realism II

There certainly are things in Peru that will make you fall in love with the country, namely the nature, varied from the Andes through the coast to the jungle, the shamanic healing legacy and the variety of food, including heaps of fruits and veggies you can get. However, there are also things that will bring other emotions around: anger, repulsion, pitying. A couple of days ago I passed a year of my stay in Peru. I´ve been through all the feelings mentioned.

31. ledna 2021 mu bude 21 let. Narodil se v Praze, studoval na soukromém gymnáziu a už tam chápal, že škola se svým sešněrovaným systémem nemůže předat všechny podstatné znalosti o tomto světě… tak se rozhodl vydat se jej prozkoumat…

Chiclayo – the Capital of Friendship

Chiclayo – the Capital of Friendship

I was invited to spend a weekend with a local family in the town of Chiclayo, located about a six-hour car-drive away from Chimbote where I am currently living. The town whose nicknames are “The Capital of Friendship” or the “Pearl of the North” with its many lovely parks, shopping centres, prestigious universities and clean beaches (where recycling is normal, hurray) will make you want to stay longer than you planned…

Máncora – Beach and Surf Life in the North of Peru

Máncora – Beach and Surf Life in the North of Peru

Peru is not necessarily a place you would choose for its marvellous beaches. Greece, Croatia, Bali, Gili, Thailand, The Philippines, Polynesia, the Caribbean, Japan or Australia are more likely to attract your attention as a beach life lover. However, the renowned Máncora district up in the North of Peru does have its charm which might draw you in, be it the whale watching, swimming with sea turtles, hot springs, wild little foxes or mangroves.
