Let's Go To Peru

Actually, I've been to Peru once already. We took a Peru vacation tour and visited the standard sites of Lima, Cusco and Machu Picchu. Our tour even included two nights at an Amazon lodge.

Well, those two nights on the Amazon were not enough for me. I want to go and stay longer. I would think a minimum of 3 nights would be necessary. There was so much to absorb between the birds and the butterflies and the flowers. I felt our trip was a bit rushed, what with getting there WAY after dark the first day, hiking the second day, and then leaving very early on the third day. It would have been wonderful to have a day just to relax around the lodge and to absorb the surroundings.

I would also go back to Cusco and do another Machu Picchu Peru tour. I loved Cusco. The city is beautiful and quaint. It has lots of great little alleys to wander through. I bought my favorite Peru souvenir in Cusco, a double headed llama out of pottery. As for Machu Picchu, the experience is indescribable. I would like to go back, just sit on one of the terraces and see if I could feel the ancients around me.

Some people do independent travel to Peru. In my opinion a Peru vacation package is the best way to go. No need to worry about stuff like accommodations and transportation ... just enjoy the beauty and history of the country.
