This July I will be visiting Peru for three weeks. So far I don’t have much on my Peru itinerary: I’ve booked my first night’s accommodation at a hostel in Lima, and then a few days later I have a two-night booking at the Hotel Paracas near Pisco. After that my schedule is wide open until I fly out of Cuzco on the 23rd.
I’m open to pretty much anything, as long as it’s logical (I don’t want to fly across the country a bunch of times to do this or that). Hiking the Inca Trail isn’t a huge attraction for me, but I was thinking of visiting Machu Picchu for a day (it seems criminal not to go, right?). I’m also trying to decide if it’s worth going into the jungle for just a few days, or if I’d be better off returning in a year or two and visiting the Amazon and/or Pantanal properly. I would also like to spend at least one day and night in a town or village that doesn’t see a lot of tourism, and of course, I’m always on the lookout for interesting local beauty treatments.
If you’ve been to Peru and have any suggestions about how I should design the ultimate Peru itinerary, please share below! If you’ve blogged about your own trip, share that too!
