PERU Friends

Hello ADVriders in Peru and Ecuador, we are the MotoNomadas riding south on our rig (DL1000+sidecar). We have been on the road for about a year and a half now, and we are about to enter Peru in the next couple of weeks.

Right now we are in Guayaquil, Ecuador trying to sort out some electrical problems we are having with the bike. Hopefully we are going to be on the road again this weekend

We would like to see if there is any ADVriders around that can give us some advice about the route we are planning to take. We did some research and we end up with this route: Guayaquil-Machala-Mancora-Piura-Chachapoyas-Celedin-Cajamarca-Huanchaco-Chimbote-Caraz-Huaraz-Huanuco-Lima-Paracas-Nasca-Abancay-Cusco-Puno

Also we are wondering if you guys know about the time given to the bike and riders to spend in Peru once you cross the border.


Thanks for your help

Hello Martinef,
The route from Guayaquil to Pedro Ruiz small town close to Chachapoyas is completly paved, from Chachapoyas to Celendin the route is not paved, but in good conditions for transit, from Celendin to Santa (close to Chimbote) is all paved, from Santa to Caraz yo have 120 kms and 60 of these paved and the other 60 not paved.
From Caraz, Huaraz, Huanuco, Lima, Paracas, Nasca, Abancay, Cusco to Puno all the route is completly paved.

The temporary entrance in Peru for foreigner vehicules is 90 days, try not pass this time because the customs law is really strict.

Hope that this information can help in your trip, if you need some other support, we are located in Lima, our company Motoviajeros Peru (www.motoviajerosperu.com) email ventas@motoviajerosperu.com is official representative of Touratech, Heidenau tires, Revit rider equipment and Nolan helmets.
Have a nice and safe ride.

Hello Bemeve, thanks for all the info about the route. We have been having some document problems to cross to Peru so we are still in Ecuador. Now we are going to cross to Peru using La Balsa border crossing. Route now goes Vilcabamba-La Balsa-Chachapoyas.....the rest so far would be the same.

Hello Martinef,
All the route between San Ignacio (small town close to the border) to Jaen and Chachapoyas is in good conditions and most of this is totally paved, enjoy the route and this part of the northern rainforest of Peru.
Kind regards,

La Balsa Crossing

We crossed there in Jan, wet and wild, and muddy. A lot of fun. Not marked real well, It was under construction until we crossed into Peru, with great road into San Iganico but after that it was around 100 K of gravel and dirt. How was it when you went through?

I too that route in Feburary and loved it! Tough at some spots because of the deep slippery mud but well worth it!!

Chimbote-Canon del Pato-Caraz

Hello riders in Peru, we finally reached Chimbote after having some problems with the fuel injection system in Chepen. Now we are preparing to go back to the mountains (sierra) where we have found much better views than the cost side of Peru.

We would like to ride from Chimbote to Caraz passing by El canon del Pato, but it seems like there is more than one way to do this route. Anybody here knows the exact route we should take to be able to see Canon del Pato? How is the condition of the road?

Thanks

Santa

The road to Canyon del Pato is not marked very well from Santa on the Pan Am, you have to go through town and catch the road after a few turns, we actually missed it and took another road south of Chimbote to San Jacinto and Napena and into Caraz. It was paved and beautiful, I think it was called Pueblo Libre, where it dropped into Caraz. The final 10K was one of the best views of the many glaciers around Caraz. If you don't have time to do both routes at least take a day trip upthe Pueblo Libre.The first time we came down the bridge was there, second time it wasn't, washed out. But there is a great detour ride that gets you across. We spent a few days riding around Caraz and going upto Lago Paron. We then went back north to ride the Canyon del Pato, and see where the road comes out to Santa. Road was good but be careful before entering tunnels. Going back to Lima in a few weeks to ride to Cusco and Puno and hopefully La Paz.
