We're planning an 18 day trip to southern Peru and were wondering about the whole altitude sickness thing. We've done some research on it and it sounds like we shouldn't take it lightly.
We're planning on flying from UK to Lima (via Madrid), then getting a connecting flight straight to Cuzco (as we've heard Lima isn't great). If we were to stay in Cuzco for a lazy few days do you think that would be enough to adjust to it?
Anyone done that before?
Thanks for your time!
