Traveling to Peru for two weeks... Itinerary suggestions needed!!

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! I am planning a two week trip to Peru in the beginning of April and am very excited, but stumped on how to plan out my itinerary, I have done a lot of research, but there is a lot of information and I find myself getting a little overwhelmed. Hoping that some of you experienced travelers can help me out a bit!

Here are the places I would like to see in Peru. Lima, Machu Picchu, Cusco, Puno, and Huacachina. I wish I had more time to see other places, but don't want to be to speedy throughout the places I really am looking forward to seeing.

I am the most confused and concerned with when to visit Machu Picchu and where to stay. Adjusting to the climate is a big concern of mine and I've read that some people suggest staying in Ollantaytambo first as opposed to Cusco. Do you think this is necessary?

I have been traveling throughout Argentina and Chile for the last 2 months so I am on a bit of a budget when it comes to my trip to Peru, but I am prepared for things to be a little bit more expensive.

Any advice and suggestions is very much appreciated! Thank you!
