If you're coming or going from/to the North or Huaraz, you can consider a stopover in Barranca to visit Caral. There are collectivos Huaraz Barranca. The Hostal Independencia was decent and, just across the street, collectivos do Barranca Caral for 6 soles but for the...More
Thoroughly enjoyed walking around the ruins and imagining life 5000 yrs ago. It was spectacular.
Cons: no English tour guide
Road to ruins was narrow and rutted
Although bathrooms were nice, they were not upkept and there was no toilet paper there... After a 3...More
Although a bit of a mission to get to (bus from Lima-Supe, collectivo from Supe- La Puenta, walk from La Puenta to the entrance) this was a truly unforgetable day! The adventure there made it even more special :)
Caral and Bandurria is a must do in your lifetime. Oldest ruins in the America’s and possibly the world. Did a tour with Caral Tours and Lidia looked after us very well. Our guide Sheila was bilingual and we’re a large family which was perfect...More
I have mixed reviews on this. I took a tour that was supposed to be English and Spanish. Unfortunately no English was spoken. As a result, I was lucky enough to read the English verbiage on the boards but didn’t not get all the information...More

It took about 3 hours to get there (by car) from Lima and we stopped at Vichama (a similar newly discovered site). We had lunch there and probably spent a couple of hours walking around. So plan a day for the whole trip. It’s really interesting!
I used Lima Tours for all my visits. They were at the airports with a sign with my name. They were at the hotels for the trans-ort and sometimes early. Lots of information and friendly. I'd use them again.
Heat and sun exposure are the main concerns. There is a good 30 min walk from the parking lot plus about 1 hr visit but I assume you guys are in good enough shape to carry the baby in a carrier. Stroller is not a good... More
Heat and sun exposure are the main concerns. There is a good 30 min walk from the parking lot plus about 1 hr visit but I assume you guys are in good enough shape to carry the baby in a carrier. Stroller is not a good option as the surface is not good for this. Sometime you can catch a very bumpy ride on a mechanize contruption (would not call it pick up truck). The place fantastic so it is worth doing if you can solve above problems.
