There is a on site museam and resturant, the site is open from mon-wed-sun from 9am - 5pm.
I really thought it was worth seeing, and thought it was sad seeing it stuck out in the middle of the road, surrounded by houses and buildings.
We went there after having lunch at Dragon Express, which was ok. Food in Miraflores is ok, there is more options here, than say somewhere like San Jose, and thankfully the population doesnt seem to rely totally on McDonalds or Pizza bloody hut. There is a nice eating culture here, which is refreshing after consumer central America, there is also a decent amounts of Veggie places.
The craft markets here are quite good, and not threating, you dont have stall after stall jumping out and asking you to buy this or that. So you can walk around the many markets in peace, and enjoy what to buy. I have already decided what i am to take home.
I also plan to buy some coffe beans for my mum, who loves her black coffee, a bag of organic ground coffe costs under 2pounds, which is amazing. I would of brought some in Costa rica too, but like i said the weight would of been too much, plus the risk of it being ruined would of been hard to take.
We are fingers crossed gettin our Machu Picchu tickets today, we have found a peru company that can do the trip for $230 that is the four day trek, so hopefully we can book it for the first week in March. We also have to look into conections to Lake Tititicaca which would then give us ample time to see Boliva and La Paz, which in turn has a coach connection to Cuzco which if timed correctly would then bring us there before the trek by five days, as we should of already be use to the high altitude in both Tititicaca and La Paz we should be ok in Cuzco.
Well this is our plan, lets see if it happens or not. If we cant book the Inka trail today, then we will still go to Cuzco and wing it there. They do after all do those lazy arse one day trips, but that is only our last option.
