Arequipa or Sucre

Jump to last reply

Still plodding along on our trip plan. Funny how they slowly take shape eventually after spending thousands of hours on the forums!

It seems that at one time 4 months seemed like a huge amount of time, but now that I am at the reality phase of planning, I realize I will probably have to make some choices. In order to have a little more time in northern Peru, we will have to cut out either Sucre or Arequipa. We would like to spend a week in one of these cities to improve our Spanish, take some hikes and kick back.

In Bolivia we wil spend time in La Paz, Copacabana, Tupiza and the salt flat tour. In Peru we will spend time in Lima, Ollytantambo, Cusco, Chachapoyas area, possibly Huaraz.

Any suggestions on which city might be best?

Thank you...
