The current plan is to spend a couple of nights there [possibly at Los Tambos] and then do a 2D/1N Colca Canyon tour and go straight on to Puno [for Lake T] rather than return to Arequipa.
Please could anyone advise:
1) Will 1.5days will be enough exploring Arequipa? Will we also struggle with altitude?
2) Do the Colca tours give a good view of the Canyon or mainly the Condors - we would like both ideally! Do all the tours pretty much take the same route?
3) Could we wait until we get to Arequipa to book our Colca tour, hotel and onward travel to Puno? Though I'm nervous about doing this as would like to have it all planned!
4) Any suggestions for staying in Puno - the chioce seems pretty limited! looks as though we'll have to have 2 nights there to so that we can do a Lake Titicaca tour and then get the bus to Cusco the next day.
Thanks in advance!
