To the Peruvian Experts...I need your help!
We're planning a 15 day trip to Peru: April 24-May 9 (ish). The first six days we have pretty much figured out, due to the 4day/3nt trek to MP and chilling in Cusco. What we're looking for is advice on how to spend the rest of our stay. Without further ado, here's where we're at:
Friday 4/24 - overnight Chicago - Lima
Saturday 4/25 - early AM Lima - Cusco
Sunday 4/26 - Cusco
Monday 4/27 - Cusco
Tuesday 4/28 - leave in AM to start Inca Trail
Wednesday 4/29 - Inca Trail
Thursday 4/30 - Inca Trail
Friday 5/1 - Machu Picchu at sunrise, evening back to Cusco
So, we have the whole rest of the week to work with. We were thinking of leaving Cusco to Puno and on through to Copacabana - hanging out at Lake Titicaca for a day, stay Copa another night. If we can get an overnight bus to Puno from Cusco (possible?) that would put us in Copacabana through Sunday, 5/3.
Would Arequipa/Colca Canyon, through to Ica and around to Lima by the 9th be too much cramming?
Would the Amazon at Tambopata be too much cramming?
With those 5 days, what's our best bet?
