Hi!
I'm Kiernan CochranTravel Advisor

I was born in Atlanta, Georgia but raised all over the southern half of the United States. My love of experiencing new places and people began at a very young age and I’ve been cultivating that love ever since. While studying Anthropology at the University of Kentucky, I had the opportunity to study abroad and live with a wonderful family in Cusco, Peru. After only a few days in Peru, I knew I wanted to return. A year later, after graduating from university, I made the move to Lima. Now, some of my favorite things to do include biking along the coast, eating delicious Peruvian food, visiting the many archeological sites both in and near Lima, and reading a good book while curled up with my cats.

Some tips and recommedations when traveling to Peru:







If you’re having trouble with the altitude when visiting the Andes, be sure to buy some coca candies or drink some mate de coca or muña tea! These Andean herbs can really make a difference while acclimating to the high altitude.

When in Cusco, make a trip to the San Pedro market to experience authentic Peruvian life. Don’t be afraid to try the Andean cheeses or a freshly squeezed fruit juice.

If you have time, don’t forget to spend a few days in Lima! Most people only stop in Lima while waiting for their flight to Cusco, but this bustling and historic city has so much to offer! From beautiful parks along the Pacific coast and ancient pyramids in modern neighborhoods, to its world renowned food, Lima is not to be missed.

If you like adventure, the Sacred Valley is full of adventure opportunities! Try mountain biking through this gorgeous valley or rafting down the Urubamba river!
