My husband and I decided to take a last minute trip to Peru with our 11 year old son the first week of December. I am use to planning most of our trips but this one is a little more difficult due to all of the extra travel that is involved because of the distance between destinations. I need a little help figuring out how many days I need where and what else I might be able to fit in. Our trip is 12/01 -12/09 but we lose the first and last day to travel. We already booked our round trip flight from Lima to Cusco so that solidifies some things. We are going to try and hike Huayna Picchu one day (tickets are still available). We thought we would look into a day to tour the Sacred Valley but prices are too expensive in the US, not sure what they will look like once we get there. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!
12/02 Monday: 12:05 am arrive in Lima
6:00 am flight to Cuzco
Spend the day acclimating to the altitude
12/05 Thursday: Machu Picchu?
12/06 Friday: Hike Huayna Picchu?
12/07 Saturday: Flight from Cuzco to Lima at 3:10 pm **not sure how much time I need to get to Cuzco or what we might fit in afterwards**
12/08 Sunday: Explore Lima/Miraflores
12/09 Monday: 1:45 am flight home
