we will be finishing up with machu picchu and returning to cusco on friday 1 nov. night and don't fly back home until wed 6 nov and need some advice on what to do to fill those days.
one option is to bus it to puno and spend the time on lake titicaca, although i'm not really sure what to do/where to stay. everything seems to be organized in tours over there and i'm really not trying to do another tour.
the other option would be to fly to arequipa and head over to colca canyon. is this feasible given the amount of time we have?
we absolutely need to be back in cusco to fly out on the afternoon of 6 nov.
any other ideas on what to do/places to go check out? we are a couple in their mid-twenties who likes adventure, meeting new people/cultures, eating vegetarian food, and want to keep our budget around US$500 for this leg of the trip (including transport to/from cusco).
thanks in advance!
