I’m planning my first trip to Peru. Very excited.
I have allocated 2 days to Arequipa and 3 full days to Colca Canyon. I am keen to explore Arequipa (I hear it is much nicer than Lima) and also do some hiking in Colca Canyon. But I don’t know if there is enough to do for the days I have allocated.
Do you think this is the right balance? Would you spend more or less time in Arequipa or Colca Canyon?
I welcome your suggestions (for this or any part of my itinerary):
1 Lima —> Arequipa
3 Colca Canyon
4 Colca Canyon
5 Colca Canyon
6 Arequipa —> Sacred Valley
7 Sacred Valley
8 Sacred Valley
9 Sacred Valley
10 Macchu Picchu
11 Macchu Picchu + Huayna Picchu
14 Cusco (day trip to Rainbow mountains)
17 Cusco —> Lima —> Home
Thanks in advance!
