I am planning a trip to Peru for later this year, so far I have booked a flight to LIM arriving at 23:00 and then have booked a flight out from LIM to CUZ a few hours later, arriving Saturday morning and then departing back to LIM on Friday morning.
Do you have any experience of LC Peru? I booked it because of never having heard of them before, plus they were very cheap. Plus the bonus of flying on their rather interesting fleet and hopefully an experience!
Would you recommend a trip from Cusco to Puerto Maldonado? I just want to experience/see the Amazon, albeit briefly!
I don't have much time so would have to fit everything into the 6 days I have in CUZ, including the trip to Puerto Maldonado.
I would probably end up flying Star Peru - any experiences? suggestions?
I am avoiding the Gringo 'tax' airlines!
in terms of Cusco and MP, I am hoping to spend a full day at the site including the trek up to Hueyna Picchu and then spend the remaining time just exploring the sites at my own leisurely pace!
I have 4 nights in LIM itself at the end of the short 12 day trip.
Any other Peru specific tips would be appreciated - including where to stay? eat? what to see? beaches? bars? plane spotting!?! How to get my tickets for MP and HP in advance? train tickets to MP? etc
I have 14 hours in Sao Paulo on the way there, from 5am to 7pm - any suggestions welcome, I would like to do a quick tour, take some photos, have some great Brazilian food etc.
