Amazon Jungle vs Lake Titicaca

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning on being in Peru from June 27-Jul 10. We have the Machu Picchu (Inca Trail hike) booked from Jnue 29-Jul 5 (starting out in Cuzco). We're trying to decide whether we want to add a trip to the amazon jungle or go to lake titicaca instead. We can change our arrival and departures dates to try to accomodate one activity over another. We're flying in from Canada so we're also trying to figure out whether we should fly in and out of Lima and then fly to our destinations from there or whether we should fly into Cuzco directly but then fly out from La Paz if we're going to Lake Titicaca. We're in our late 20s (in case that should affect our decision) and might plan a future trip to south america for an amazon experience, but it's all up in the air.

Would love to hear opinions from folks that have done both (or have strong opinions about one).
