Budgeting:

Food:  In an effort to combine group energy with your own integration and free time – there will be approximately 6 lunches and 2 dinners that will be on your own.  While the prices can vary widely depending on your restaurant choice – the food remains very inexpensive for the budget conscious.  Expect to pay approx $5 for a good lunch and $5- $10 for dinner depending on how much you like to splurge, if you drink alcohol and the quality of the restaurant you choose.  * We do not recommend alcohol until the last day of the voyage to keep your channels clear.   We also recommend a completely vegetarian diet during the journey including two weeks before and at least one week after.

Alcohol:  The wine in Peru tends to be pricey and not very good.  Beer runs about $1 – $2 dollars and the local drink called Pisco (Pisco Sours are very popular and  run a few dollars depending on the restaurant that is serving.  A complimentary glass is offered at many restaurants – including our last night at Tunupa.)  If you are choosing to participate in Grandmother ceremonies – no alcohol will be consumed at all.

Shopping:  This budget is entirely up to you!  🙂  The Q’ero who help us during sacred medicine ceremonies sell some beautiful handicraft as a way of supporting themselves – and many participants love to buy them.  We also work with a trusted merchant for jewellery (there are many vendors of various integrity levels selling pieces).  There are many, many other souvenirs available for purchase every place we visit.
