I get confused with all this lowland versus highland stuff. It seems like all the places I’d be interested in traveling to are in the highlands-except for Ecuador’s Amazon (The Oriente). Below I’ve listed where I wish to go:
1. Ecuador: Quito, The Oriente, Riobamba and Cuenca
2. Peru: Cusco and Machu Picchu
3. Bolivia: Sucre
Anyways, please describe what type of whether I should expect in the listed destinations from January-April. Are these good traveling months? Otherwise, regarding Bolivia, I am not so much concerned about crime-but I am concerned about political protests and how they can turn violent real quickly. What’s the current political climate in Sucre and what kind of risks do tourists take by visiting there?
