Peru

Anyone here (besides Less, who is already giving me input) done any traveling in Peru? I'm signed up for a 10-day August trip to the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu and welcome any suggestions, etc. I'll be doing a group tour so my schedule is somewhat set, though I'll probably add on an excursion or two at the end of the trip. Add on choices are: Peruvian rainforest (3-5 days), Lake Titicaca (1-2 days) or Ica, Paracas and Nazca Lines (1-3 days). The first and third options sound most intriguing to me. Third option includes Peruvian penguins!!
My sister and my mom went two years ago. They weren't all that impressed with Lima, but they LOVED Machu Picchu. They stayed at an eco hotel not too far away from Machu Picchu that boasted a gagillion varieties of orchids and a spectacled bear habitat. I'll try to dig up the name of it for you. They highly, highly recommended it and wished they'd spent more time exploring Macchu Picchu.

Eta: I think this is the hotel

Oops.

You should go to Peru solely b/c it's fun to say "Machu Picchu" and "Titicaca!"

It's been many years, but if Galleria Uno is still there it is a truly fantastic gallery. And place to meet artistes.

I think it's where you win going on the Price is Right, at least 20 years ago.

All shows live on on TV LAND.

I've never been to Whistler. I ski Colorado, and not much else.

Sheesh, I am an honourary citisen of Canada. It would be blasphemy not to go to Whistler. Plus it takes me through Vancouver, which I have recently discovered is a very good time.

True. Decriminalized marijuana and prostitution.
