Helicopter to Machu Picchu, travel to Bolivia

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling to South America for 12 days over Christmas and I'm trying to do a lot in those 12 days. I arrive in Lima late Dec. 20. I'd like to get to Cuzco/Machu Picchu on the 21st then get to La Paz or Cochabamba on the 22nd.

Two Questions:
1. The earliest flight I can find from Lima to Cuzco on the 21st arrives at 7:30am, too late to catch the train to Machu Picchu, is there and earlier flight or another means to reach the ruins? I read a helicopter service used to run from Cuzco, is that still in operation? I know Cuzco/MP deserves more that 1 day but I'm trying to do the most with my 12 days.

2. What is the best way to get from Cuzco to Bolivia (La Paz or Cochabamba)? The two options I was looking into were a LAN flight through Lima or Rail Peru to Puno, a ferry to Copacabana, and a bus to La Paz. I'd like to take in the Andean scenery but as mentioned before I'm short on time. I will have more money than time. I'll also be solo.

Gracias para la ayuda.
