I would be really grateful on any tips on an itinerary/where to go in Peru/Bolivia on my month trip mid march to mid april, as I posted in the peru forum my main interests are indigineous peoples and their children (as am travelling with my 5 year old son, and our most memorable part of our Vietnam trip last year was time spent just hanging out with local peoples), wildlife, nature, not so interested in touristy tours/ honey pot attractions and sights.
On the hiking front am a little restricted, but short hikes are fine.
Have been told by friends that their favourite place in south america was Bolivia, so am open to suggestions on recommendations of how much time to spend in Peru v Bolivia, and whether to fly in or out of La Paz etc (am flying Uk to LIma return)
Planning on primarily buses, backpacky style rather than tour buses/ smart hotels.
Really grateful of any info as due to domestic chaos have done very lttle research thus far!
Thanks in advance, Trees
