Jump to last reply

My Husband and I are going to start planning this trip. We are in the very early stages and want some info from fellow travelers.

Day 1 Fri: Arrive in Lima late night
Day 2 Sat: Morning flight to Cuzco - spend day resting, exploring - Night in Cuzco
Day 3 Sun: Machu Picchu - Night in Cuzco
Day 4 Mon: Not sure where we are going yet - Maybe Fly to Santiago
Day 5 Tues: Santiago or other location?
Day 6 Wed:Santiago or other location? Fly to Rio
Day 7 Thurs: RIo
Day 8 Fri: Rio
Day 9 Sat: Rio
Day 10 Sun: Morning and afternoon in Rio, night flight back to US

Questions: Anyone take a trip like this one - thoughts/suggestions?
Any airline recommendations for the best fares? I am trying to figure out the best and most cost effective ways to fly between places.

Thanks for your time.
