It is always worth a hotel upgrade to the 4-star or 5-star level in certain destinations like the Sacred Valley and Colca Canyon. There are some incredible hotel properties in Peru with unique styles and amazing views that make the additional cost well worth it.
Considering the Amazon for your trip? Don’t be afraid to explore some of the more unique locations of Northern Peru. The northern Amazon of Peru is so diverse and offers a more temperate climate. Take an awesome hike to a waterfall, try some exotic fruits and even stumble upon some pre-Incan ruins.
Slow down the pace of your trip a bit with a free day or two. An itinerary to Peru can often include a lot of early mornings and full days, so having a nice free day in a city like Cusco, Lima and Arequipa is a great way to relax a bit.
