Trip Report Trip Report: Argentina and Peru

Jump to last reply

I recently spent 3.5 weeks in Argentina and Peru with my mom. We went to Buenos Aires, Lima, Arequipa, Colca Canyon, Puno, Cusco, and Ollantaytambo. Hopefully this brief trip report will help others because I had a lot of trouble planning out how to get to each place within Peru (e.g. driver? taxi? tour bus?) and where to stay!

In a nutshell:
- Buenos Aires: May 13-17
- Santiago (stopover): May 17-18
- Lima: May 18-19
- Arequipa: May 19-21
- Colca Canyon: May 21-23
- Puno: May 23-25
- Cusco: May 25-29
- Ollantaytambo: May 29-June 1
- Lima: June 1-4

Stay tuned for the second post for more details!
