We’re lucky enough that our location independent business means that we can travel extra slow. If this is an option to you, we strongly recommend that you take your time, really getting to know and appreciate each country you’re in rather than try to cram as many passport stamps as you can into a few months. We would advise at least one month in each country in Latin America, perhaps with the exception of Panama which has less going on. However, that’s not always possible, as we are often asked by people who only have a 2 week holiday from their jobs where we would prioritise in the given time. So behold! Here is our 2 weeks Peru itinerary for anyone who is tight on time but still wants to soak up the best that this incredible country has to offer.
As this is a 2 week trip, we assume that you will be beginning your 2 weeks Peru itinerary with a flight to Cusco and ending your journey in Lima.
In that case, we’d recommend using the 2 weeks Peru itinerary but adding a trip to Arequipa after Cusco from where you can visit the Colca Canyon, and Paracas after Huacachina to go and see the Mars-like desert coastline of the Paracas National Reserve.
