I am in the early stages of planning a 3 week backpacking trip to Peru and Bolivia in September 2013. Places in Peru we would like to visit are Arequipa, Colca Canyon, and Machu Picchu. In Bolivia we would like to visit isla del Sol, La Paz, Uyuni (3 day/2 night tour), Poyosi, and Rurrenabaque.
Does a week in Peru and 2 weeks in Bolivia sound reasonable for the places we want to see?
Is there a way to travel from Poyosi to Rurrenabaque without going back to La Paz?
I am also looking for packing tips, with Christmas just around the corner I thought I could put some things on my list. In particular useful things to have for the 3 day/2 night tour out of Uyuni and also the time spent in the Amazon.
Thanks in advance!
