3 Weeks in Peru/Bolivia - Itinerary doable? Need a reality check!

Jump to last reply

Hi Everyone,

I'm headed to Peru on December 12th - January 2nd (three (short) weeks). Itinerary is as follows, then need some suggestions/help!

12-12-12, Seattle to Lima, Arrive 12:00am
Spend a day or two getting oriented/sightseeing. I hear i should go to Nazca but don't think i have time!

12-15-12, Lima to Cuzco

12-17-12, Leave for Machu Picchu.
Considering doing a four day trek but am not sure if i should just take the train to move along my ideal route more quickly.

From here, would like to go to Lake Titicaca, Isla Del Sol, and Salar De Uyuni. I

1-2-13, Go Home, Fly from La Paz to Seattle

hear Salar de Uyuni is really far from everything and should allow two days on either side to get to some sort of metropolis. I could also consider flying home from Lima rather than La Paz. Not sure how much Christmas or New Years will slow things down. Unfortunately January 2nd is an incredibly popular flight day so....

I need some help being realistic!

Is Titicaca, Isla and Salar de Uyuni doable?? If not, what would you suggest i do/ skip/ do instead.

Can you help?
