A trip to Machu Picchu and Galapagos cruises can be combined for a memorable vacation. The combination of ancient ruins and islands with distinctive wildlife makes for many activities and things to experience. Your trip can be planned by the experts with Vaya Adventures, tailored to fit your budget and interests.
There are different ways to make your way to Machu Picchu. You can take a train to particular sites or hike a longer distance. The decision you make rests on your own fitness levels as well as that of the people you are traveling with when it comes to how much you want to hike to the ruins, which are high above sea level.
As you visit the area, you might want to consider the types of hotels you would like to stay in. The quality ranges all the way up to five-star, so you can stay at top-of-the-line hotels or go the other extreme and spend nights camping at a much reduced rate. This decision will depend on your budget and the preferences of your traveling companions.
Remember to block out enough time to see all the sights that you want to see in the area. A good gauge is to allow for at least anywhere from 12 to 17 days for a combined visit of the ruins and then on to the islands. Your length of cruise is a factor in total time needed for the tour.
If you can spend a few extra days, you could be able to devote quite a bit of time on the islands and all of the extraordinary views and wildlife it is possible to see. You might be stunned by the variety of animals and scenic views. You also could take in the view from underwater with time devoted to snorkeling for a full review of the extraordinary fish in the area.
You may want to explore beyond these two landmark tourist attractions to see other attractions in the region. If so, you can add on a visit to the Amazon jungle or tour the local markets to find souvenir crafts. You could even choose to explore some of the nearby volcanoes and learn about their history. The tour packages are flexible and can pack in much more for you to see.
One essential element in these tours is that you can receive valuable information on what you will need for your trip. An overview explaining required documentation, weather forecasts and tips for packing all can be included in your itinerary information. Also, handy guides can include shopping tips when searching to buy local crafts in the area.
