Overnight trips from Lima

My husband and I will have six days in the Lima area at the end of December after Cusco/Machu Picchu, which we figure is more than enough. What would be a good 2-3 day trip we could take from the city? We have a mid-range budget and are packing a lot into the first half of the trip so would prefer something not too logistically complex. Thanks!

With 5 days, you could fit in Puno/Arequipa from Cusco.

Or fly back to Lima & Paracas/Ica/Nazca could be done in 3 days?

I would recommend a trip north along the coast. It is profoundly different from the highlands and another, relatively unknown part of Peru's treasure chest. Starting out, visit Caral, the oldest city in the America, then stop at Casma to visit Cerro Sechin, before moving up to overnight in Trujillo. In Trujillo, visit Chan Chan, the imperial capital of the Chimu Empire (conquered by the Inca just before the arrival of the Spanish) and Cerro Blanco (Moche), a magnificent center of the Mochica civilization. Fly back to Lima on any number of inexpensive flights. If you have an extra day, a visit to Lambayeque and the Tombs of Sipan site and Museum, it is worth every second. Enjoy.
