Peru & Chile in 7 days?

Jump to last reply

If I had only 7 days and wanted to visit both countries how would I do this?

I don't want to go at this thinking I'm 20 years old, I'm not, far from it in fact, but my mind thinks otherwise. I lived in England for a while and became accustomed to taking trips over to the mainland where it would last 3 or 4 days at most. I would select a city and take in as much as I could manage on foot. It involved getting up early and breakfast was usually on the road, so was lunch and I'd return to the hotel/rented vacation apartment about 16:00 or 17:00. Rest for a bit while researching dinner options. Get dinner in and then a little night time walking before turning in about 22:00 or 23:00.

I understand the altitude will slow me down some but I'm fine with sitting at a café and doing some people watching to recover.

Can it be done? Lima with a trip to Cusco then head to Santiago and a trip out to the wine region?
