I was wondering if anyone has itinerary ideas for 3 weeks in South America.
Ideally I would like to spend 10 days in Brazil and 10 days between Peru and Bolivia.
I can't advise on Brazil but Peru and Bolivia are fab countries - you can certainly cover some ground in 10 days although I would say that I spent 6 weeks in these countries and still felt rushed and not able to see it all. I would imagine you would fly from Brazil - let's say into La Paz and make your way over to Lima to fly out. From La Paz you would be insane not to visit the Uyuni Salt Flat, very much a highlight of Bolivia. You can do 4 day jeep tours in the region and visit some INCREDIBLE scenery (see some of my photos http://wp.me/p280ye-IY). I would seriously consider it at the expense of some other great places because it blew me away. After that you would probably need to head into Peru - go via Puno and you can do a whistle stop visit to Lake Titicaca - the highest lake in the world with awesome man-made islands of reeds where the locals have lived for hundreds of years. From there head straight to Cusco for a tour of the stunning Valle Sagrado where there are lots of inca ruins to investigate then of course take a day trip to the unmissable Machu Picchu. This would probably easily eat up 10 days! If you do fancy spending longer and want some more inspiration let me know! x
