First Peru Trip Itinerary Ideas for 8-10 Days (12/26-1/4/12)

Jump to last reply

Good evening!

My friend and I are planning our first trip to Peru and would like to hear some of your ideas on how to split up our trip or if you have suggestions of other places that we shouldn't miss while we're there! We plan to be there after Christmas 12/26 to 1/4/12 flying out from NYC or DC (depending on where flights are cheaper) - so the dates aren't entirely set yet.

- Lima (2 days)
- Cusco (1 day)
- Sacred Valley (1 day)
- Machu Picchu (4 days) - with trail perhaps

Is there anywhere we're missing? If you have any tips (or warnings for getting from place to place), that will be great to know as well.

As always, thank you for your help in advance!
Christine
