We are a 59 year old couple travelling on British passports who would appreciate any advice on this itinerary (timings and sights) for 90 days in Peru-Chile and Argentina. We will fly if it makes sense and not exorbitant or travel on the best bus. We are seeking advice on the Peru part of trip.

I'm arriving in Lima on 7th January and am staying in the city until 10th/11th January and would just like some advice. I've tried to have a look online about public transport and where is best to stay but I can't find much solid information. I've found a good hostel in Miraflores and a not so good one in the city centre but I'm not too fussed about the quality of the accommodation, just the location. If I stayed in Miraflores, how easy/time consuming would it be to travel into the…

I'm planning on coming to South America soon, and would like to avoid rain as best as possible. Based on the natural flow of the itinerary I should arrive to Peru in early February, traveling along the coast for the first part and then at around mid February going to Cusco. I heard about the rainy season in Peru and that the weather starts improving in March, but was wondering what to expect? Is the rain only in the Amazon part of Peru, and also does it rain throughout most of the day, or…
I'm due to start my travels on the 6th January when I will fly from my home in the UK to Lima, Peru. I am currently in the stage of planning my first few weeks/months and would like an opinion on my initial itinerary. For example, if it would be recommended for me to stay in a certain place for longer/shorter, visit a somewhere that isn't on my itinerary or if I've tried to cram too much into a short amount of time (which I know I probably have). It currently looks like this;
I plan on coming to Peru in late January/ early February by taking a bus from Loja (Ecuador) to Piura (Peru). Based on my itinerary the next destination after Piura is Trujillo, but I was wondering if there is anything interesting to see in between those two cities, in terms of ancient sacred sites, places in nature, or interesting indigenous villages.
We leave Toronto January 5 2016 and arrive in Lima at 2 am on January 6. We leave Lima for home early February 5. We realize we are traveling in the rainy season and that unfortunately it might be wetter than normal because of El Nino. I realize nobody can predict how bad it will be and we are hoping to make the best of it (while staying safe of course) as flights are booked. We are avid hikers, we love nature and beautiful scenery, and are excited about learning more about the Incas and earlier…
The past few days I have been trying to buy my Machu Picchu tickets online via the government website. This January I will be in Peru. Yet when I select my date in January 2016 it gives a ticket availability of 0. I selected some other dates and halfway December the tickets availability ends. I thought that I would be a matter of time before more tickets for later dates would become available but nothing is showing yet. I did some research if more people experienced this problem of no…
