The Amazon and Machu Picchu

Jump to last reply

I am backpacking through Ecuador and Peru and I had two main questions:

1.) Where is a better place to visit the Amazon: Ecuador or Peru? I am a younger woman and I just want a short trip to get the Amazon feel, nothing too intense or out of the way. Also, I am looking for one of the more affordable routes.

2.) I am visiting in February and I know the Inca Trail will be closed down. How can I visit Machu Picchu (and also in one of the most affordable ways if possible). Train companies, any advanced booking I need to make, etc would be helpful!
