Heeeey! Well, this was the second time I went to Ayacucho (first was like two years ago with a couple of friends, but didn’t enjoy it much ’cause one of them got sick and had to take care of her the whole trip) and I loved it!
I went alone, and it was great. I know there’s still some fear about traveling alone in my country, specially girls, but I don’t care and my mom got used to it, so far so good. You just need to be careful and always be prepare to react, sad truth but it can be actually dangerous for women to be alone and careless.
Tip: Never stop being afraid, but don’t let fear stop you.
I went for a three days, I chose to stay at Via Via II hotel because a friend recommend it, and it was great. Although I booked it through Booking and when I got there it was cheaper without the booking commision (duh) so…I would recommend you first check directly with the hostel/hotel.

Where to go on adventure?
Well if you have been reading my blog you know I am the adventure type and so I looked for a Tour company that could provide this kind of tours. The only one I found and that I would definitely come back to is Esmeralda Tours , amazing guides and photographer!
Millpu “Turquoise natural pools”
Amazing, breath-taking place! BUT of course humanity had to ruin it. People haven’t been taking good care of the place and now it will no longer be available for swimmers.
Canyon of Qorihuilca
There are levels for this tour, I took the intermediate level because the more advance one takes all day and I didn’t had that much time since I did it on my last day.
