The Huascaran National Park offers adventures for everyone, and you will find an array of day tours to stunning locations. If long days in the wild is not your thing or if you have limited time in the region, stay in Huaraz and enjoy day trips to lagunas and ancient ruins.
The easiest way to enjoy these day trips is to book tour leaving from Huaraz: these are often just as costly as organizing it on your own and are more reliable as local transportation is not always consistent. Tour prices will vary, but you will always have to add entrance fees either to the national park or to the local communities – this will depend on which trip you decide to take. Wherever you go, bring enough water and always pack some rain jackets as the weather can change quite quickly in the region.
In Huaraz you can contact the following - Medical: Clínica San Pablo North of town, this is the best medical care in Huaraz. Some doctors speak English; Police - Policìa de Turismo; Forex - Banco de la Nación, BCP, Interbank
