Another Itinerary Suggestion Thread
Posted January 8th, 2013 - 7:03 pm by from New York, United States (Permalink)
Hi all,

My sister and I will be traveling down to Cuzco to check out Machu Picchu but we're undecided on where to go from there. She has a limited amount of time to travel (about 8-9 days) while I will likely travel for 2-3 weeks.

We would really appreciate any good suggestions on countries/locations to try out aside from Machu Picchu. I think the contenders at this time are Chile, Argentina or Brazil. Any recommendations on locations there or elsewhere? We do enjoy hiking but more than anything, I think we want to experience the culture there.

Thanks for any help!

When do you start your trip?

Hiking? come to Arequipa! it is not far from Cusco. canyon, valleys, volcanoes, etc.

por supuesto, te puedo dar informaciones, sugerencias, etc.
Darma, estás segura que quieres hacer el Camino del inca 4d/3n? eso te cuesta casi 400 dolares, y recuerda, no se puede hacer sin agencia.

Arequipa es la segunda ciudad más visitada del Perú... ojalá puedas venir.

Hola vivo en Cusco, y no sale tan caro depende de muchas cosas .. pero es mejor estar acá y ver las promociones dependiendo también de que ruinas quieres conocer .. y si traes un carnet o certificado de que eres estudiante te pueden hacer un descuento .. igual creo que hay un descuendo también a venzolanos en total te puedes gastar 150 soles y conociendo otros lugares otros 150 soles ..

Además si quieres estar en Cusco hay un lugar donde puedes pagar de 10 a 5 soles ..

Un abrazo felices vacaciones ..

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I had to translate to understand what was being sad lol. Sorry, I know almost no Spanish.

@Enru If the translation was correct, were you suggesting that looking for deals in Peru would be cheaper than trying to book ahead of time? How many days should I spend in Cuzco and Aguas Caliente?

What is a another good country to visit after Peru? Chile? Ecuador? I might have 2.5 weeks to work with so I might try to travel around to a few countries. Any suggestion on the order I should go around the countries?

Just wanted to say thanks for the replies Enru. Took me this long to get back to this thread because of life but I think I might head over to Ecuador. Probably head down the west coast of South America.

Thanks again!
