Ask the experts

My wife and I are interested on a long trip to Peru, including Lake Titicaca and Machu Picchu, but also Ecuador, including the Amazon Rainforest and the Galápagos Islands. We wondered whether it would be better to make one trip or two dependiing on the best travel period for each area. We're both over 65s but reasonably fit.

Asked by A R

Thank you for contacting us about your possible trip to Peru and Ecuador, we certainly can help you.

Peru and Ecuador combines very nicely as they are next to each either and there are plenty of flights between both countries, if you can allow at least 3 weeks for this trip, I think is better to do it in one trip.

The warmer months for Galapágos is December until March, the water is clear with good visibility specially if you want to do snorkelling , these months however, are the wettest for Peru as it’s their summer and rainy season (February particularly).

To compromise for these 2 countries, I think that April-May are very good for both.

You can see the boats we work with in Galapagos as they vary in size from small, medium and large and let us know what’s your preference.

Have a look also one of our trips that combines Peru and Galapagos called Peru Wildlife: Pristine Amazon and enchanted Galápagos
