What type of accomodation does Faceperu use?
We use bed & breakfast style locations or three, four and five star hotels. All of our Peru hotels have private bathrooms, hot water and clean, comfortable rooms. For certain packages, homestays are available as well.
What locations are homestays available?
We offer homestays in a variety of areas. Our most popular locations are in the Sacred Valley and Taquile Island in Lake Titicaca. The beauty of the homestay is that you have a chance to spend a day in the life of local people – experiencing their way of life as well as enjoying the food that they prepare.
What to expect from a Homestay?
Homestays offer a great experience to enjoy the daily life of the Andean people. All of the accommodations are very basic, but comfortable. Bedrooms will have single beds with many blankets and a shared bathroom and limited electricity all adding to the romance of experience. While the accommodations are simple, the host families are happy to make you as comfortable as possible, serving you deliciously prepared food all while sharing their lives with you.
How do I check in the hotel? Will I get the hotel vouchers?
All vouchers will be handled by your guide so you never have to worry about keeping up with the documents. Once at the hotel, your reservation will be waiting for you and you will only need to check-in. The receptionist will ask you for your passport in order to make a copy, which is a requirement by the Peruvian government.
Where are the hotels located?
All of our hotels are located in secure, easily accessible areas. You will find yourself within easy walking distance of main attractions as well as restaurants and shopping.
What type of breakfast will be served?
B&Bs and some 3-star hotels offer a standard continental breakfast of bread, jam, juice, coffee, tea and fruit. Some three, all Four and five star hotels will offer a breakfast buffet, including hot items such as eggs and breakfast meats.
Will I have a private bathroom?
All of our hotels offer private baths. Homestay is the exception
Will I have a heater in my room?
Most of our hotels offer heat or portable heaters in all of the rooms.
Will I have air conditioning in my room?
We want our passengers to be as comfortable as possible so when you are headed to a hot climate, it is likely that you will either have a fan or air-con. Of course, if you are staying in remote areas or at homestays, you will need to expect the facilities to be a little more basic.
We insist on using high standards of vehicles and, where applicable, drivers. If you are unhappy about any aspect of the vehicle or the standard of driving, please advise the driver or local agent or Faceperu immediately.
If you are traveling by hire car ask about the local speed limits and traffic laws before setting off if you are not informed as a matter of course. Always obey the speed limits. Never drink and drive. Drive in the daytime where possible.
Recommendation: In more remote places there can be large distances between roadside service areas. In these areas ensure you have all that you need to complete your journey in comfort each day.
