CARAL VALLEY

Caral and its 4,000 years stone pyramids is 200 Kms north from the main capital, the trip may take 4 hours, so to profit the destination for photography is better to do it in two days.

The Supe river valley comes from the Andes and in its lower lands many constructions were built, most of them from the Caral era (around 2500 BC) at both sides of the river.
Doing the trip in one day will get you enough time just to visit the archaeological site and some points nearby. So it´s much better to do it in two days:

Day One: Leaving Lima early at 9am. After crossing the city we will arrive around  noon to Huacho and take a brief stop at Bandurria, then continue to Albufera de Medio Mundo, a wetland with birds.  Then we will lunch and drive to Caral for a visit in the late afternoon. Then we will move to our lodge.
Day Two: in the morning we will visit again Caral, to have a second view with different colors than the day before, we will take a look to the surrounding area and after lunch or snack we will drive back to the coast to visit Bandurria, antoher ancient site of the area and spend some moments at the shores.
After that we will drive back to Lima, arriving late at night.

Options of lodging:
In Huacho: Casablanca House.
In Huacho beach: Albufera Lodge
In Caral Valley: Empedrada Hotel (luxury)

Finally this trip could be extended, adding other northern places in the coast, if you have some ideas you are free to share them.
It can be done in just one day but schedule is quite tight with not so much time for shooting.
