I think everybody is really aware of Peru and its beauty. I am strongly recommending to see Silvia when you arrive at Lima airport Jorge Chavez.

Silvia, I am working hard to promote riding adventure in Peru and the rest of South America. My mission goes to riders meetings in South Florida and showing them the beauty of our continent. Opening their eyes.

I've a question on Peru, how easy is to get diesel, and what sort of price per litre?

is it easy to travel all round in a 4x4, I'm jelous of the bike guys and how nimble and quick they can travel, but I like my comfort just a little bit too much :-)

Merv.

Yes diesel is pretty common and cheaper than gas (D5) at ~10-12 Soles/Gallon.
