Itinierary for a 2 country trip - Peru & Argentina

Jump to last reply

I could use a little help here with possible itinerary suggestions. My partner and I looking to go to Peru and Argentina in mid/late October.
The places we’d like to see are Cusco(Machu Picchu) and a couple days in Lima, I heard it’s a good place for foodies. Then we’d like to head down to Buenos Aries for a few more days and take a side trip to Iguazu Falls for another couple days.
We’re debating between us how many days….He says 20 and I say 15.
While I know there is plenty to do/see in Cusco that could easily eat up a week we both agree that we’d want to spend, at most, 3 full days there. About 3 days in Lima this would include the transfer time to and from Cusco. So that’s about 6-7 days.
Buenos Aries would cover about 5 days including the transfer time and then off to Iguazu Falls for another 3 days.
The last day would be spent flying from Iguazu Falls to BA to Lima before the flight back to Los Angeles.
Before you go off and tell me that I should spend more time in either place I need to say that we’re both very agile and tend to pick and choose the sites we want to see and absorb those. We eat our way through a trip too.
