Online Travel Tools
Andean Travel Web, an independent website, has great information about regional destinations. Assisting travelers is iPer, which has English- and Spanish-language information about the city and beyond. The website, in English and Spanish, is extremely helpful in planning your trip.
The most thorough information about Peru is available at South American Explorers. This nonprofit organization dispenses a wealth of information. You can also call ahead with questions, or just show up at its clubhouses in Lima (Miraflores) or Cusco (as well as Quito and Buenos Aires) and browse through the lending library and read trip reports filed by members. It costs $60 USD to join, and you can make up for that with discounts offered to members by hotels and tour operators.
