Help w 2nd Guessing Peru itinerary

Jump to last reply

I've been working on this for weeks; and I'm left with a feeling that we were moving too much & trying to do too much. We are not the type of travelers that enjoy constant movement nor are 5-10 hour bus rides something we look forward to. We are travelers that like to 'hang out' each place we go for 3-5 days.I would say that for me the most important doings are the Inca Trail, Machu Picchu and Rainbow Mountain. I've dropped Nazca Lines, Colca Canyon, and Lake Titicaca from original plans.

As of today, itinerary looks like this:

12 Sept-NYC to Lima (12 hours) arrival at 11pm
13 Sept-Morning Lima. Afternoon Travel to Paracas by car or bus. Overnite in Paracas
14 Sept- Morning Ballestas Islands Boat ride followed by Paracas Reserve. Return to Lima
15 Sept-Lima
16 Sept-Morning flight to Arequipa
17 Sept- Arequipa
18 Sept- Arequipa
19 Sept- Sacred Valley
20 Sept- Sacred Valley
21 Sept--Cusco
22 Sept- Cusco
23 Sept- Cusco
24 Sept-Inca Trail Trek Day 1
25 Sept- Inca Trail Trek Day 2
26 Sept- Inca Trail Trek Day 3
27 Sept-Inca Trail Day 4 arrive at Machu Piccu. Overnight in Aguas Calientes. SHOULD WE STAY OVERNIGHT?
28 Sept-Machu Picchu in the morning, bus to Aqua Calientes & train back to Cusco
29 Sept- Cusco
30 Sept- Rainbow Mountain day 1
01 Oct-Rainbow Mountain, return to Cusco
02 Oct-Morning flight to Lima, free time, with over night flight home leaving at almost midnight.
Feedback? Opinions?
A Big thank you!
PS: Only items written in stone are dates for Inca Trail Trek....permits already bought!
