This is by far the best side trip in all of RY. It was such an amazing weekend packed with relaxation, adventure, good food and great company.
This is the perfect example of an RY curated experience. It’s definitely not something you can jump onto another platform and purchase.
I wish I could do this every month. Shout out to Fran and Ari 🏽
If you don't enjoy a heavy binge-drinking, spring break-y vibe, you will probably not have a good time. There are fun activities, but it is certainly not a life-changing experience.
If you need to pass on one weekend trip in Peru, make it this one.
This was the best of Remote Year. Well-executed, adrenaline pumping, with gorgeous vistas and so much fun! Do not miss this trip! Sand-sledding was on my bucket list and it was exhilarating. Loved every minute of this weekend, and it is packed with activities. Consider bringing a mask for sand, and sunglasses or goggles for the boat ride to see the penguins. Lots of the gringos on my trip got sunburned, so take care with sunblock. The surprise part of the trip brought tears of joy to my eyes. It was spectacular. Floating on life jackets (used as seats) was a highlight, too. Fantastic! Thank you, Fran and Ari! I will not forget this weekend!
A weekend of a lifetime! Filled with adventures, beautiful sights, quiet spots, dancing in the desert and adrenaline. It really covers all the bases
The most epic weekend! Never thought the big surprise could live up to the hype but it delivered!
