Please your thoughts--
Then they say to head to Sacred Valley for 2 nights (Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo) take train to Machu Picchu for afternoon and next day.
THEN back to Cusco for one or two nights.(back to Hotel Monasterio)
We love the hotel choices--just not the what seems to be wasted time back and forth to stay in Cusco.
We've read we could fly to Lima, spend night, fly to Cusco next morning and take private transfer or taxi to Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu, then go to Cusco to stay 1-3 nights.
This also would seem to make more sense with altitudes.
WHICH OF THESE OPTIONS MAKES MORE SENSE????
From there we plan to go to Juliaca, transfer to Puno for one night, then Lake Titicaca Isla Suasi.
From there fly to Lima onto Guayaquil for 6 or 7 nights in Galapagos. Then home.
Please share advice on these options and our itinerary. Thanks so much !!!
