As experts in creating personalized tours to Peru and other South American countries, our team in Peru Inka Time Tours would like to share their experience with you. Here are our tips on how to plan the perfect trip to Peru.
Before booking your trip, do some research to learn a little about the culture, history and incredible selection of destinations available to visitors, Peru is a vast country and offers exciting trips to the desert, the jungle, mountainous villages and busy cities Cosmopolitan You can visit the floating islands or walk along the Inca trails and canyons. Once you know what there is, you can start planning your trip.
2. Consider your Peruvian wish list
After you have done your research, you can plan your wish list: the essential destinations that you should not miss. Do you intend to go to Machu Picchu? Do you want to visit the Amazon jungle? Is Lake Titicaca on your wish list? Did you want to fly over the Nazca lines? Once you have decided what you do not want to miss, it is easier to prepare your itinerary.
3. Take into account time restrictions
If you plan to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and visit Lima, Cusco and Arequipa, with excursions to Nazca, Lake Titicaca and the Ballestas Islands, you will obviously need more than a few days. Some places require a couple of days to visit, while others, such as Cusco, need some acclimatization due to the altitude. Your destinations will act as a base guide for the duration of your tour.
4. Think about the best time of the year to travel.
The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is closed in February, although the ruins remain open throughout the year. From May to September is the best time to visit Peru, as it is the dry season. December to March is the rainiest period with constant rains, although you can still visit during these months and create great memories.
5. Consider your budget
Your budget will also have something to do with planning your trip. If you are looking for the train trip to Machu Picchu, a boat ride on Lake Titicaca, a 3-day hike to the Colca Canyon and a flight over the Nazca Lines, then you will have to pay a cost to see if you can handle the expense Remember to take into account accommodation costs, food expenses and enough money to buy souvenirs.
