Join the South American Explorer's Club
From the South American Explorer's club (SAE) site: "Our clubhouse is a center of information: you find tons of guide books – including our owns!!, information sheets about various aspects of traveling (transport, night life, adventure sport, SAE´s top ten of things to do in Lima), members written trip reports, knowledgeable staff, reference maps, a library with some real gems, a collection of the South American Explorers Magazine, wifi access and more!"
If you plan to travel to South America, consider joining the SAE before you leave. When I was in Lima, my Miraflores area hotel was a short walk from the Lima club house. Had I known about it, I could have walked over, met other travelers, and learned more about Peru while waiting for my flight to Pucallpa.
