Peru’s Inca Empire And The Amazon Are The Perfect 10-Day Honeymoon


The English website Evening Standard invites newlyweds to take things a little off the beaten track and go to Peru for their honeymoon.

“A country with the perfect blend of nature and culture and an ever-improving luxury scene, there’s no end of adventures to be had and, despite it being the third largest country in South America, you don’t need a sabbatical to experience it”, they wrote.

They suggest the following trip that will allow you to enjoy the best in as little as ten days:

Day 1: Overnight flight to Lima and connect to Cusco

Once in Lima, there are many ways to get to Cusco, don’t forget to read about it!

Day 2 and 3: Cusco

Here you can experience ancient history since it was the capital of the Inca Empire.

Day 4 and 5: Machu Picchu

“Cusco is known as the gateway to Machu Picchu, and you can catch the train to Machu Picchu from Poroy (25-minute drive from the city) or Ollantaytambo (90-minute drive from the city) depending on which train times suit you best.”, Evening Standard suggests.

Nevertheless, we show you the best ways to get there.

Day 6 and 7: Urubamba

After exploring the most visited site in Peru you can board the train back to Ollantaytambo and then transfer to Urubamba.

“Right in the heart of the Sacred Valley, surrounded by sloping marbled mountains and away from any light pollution, the sky is so dark and clear that between May and the 1st of August (the traditional month of Mother Earth) you can actually spot the majestic constellations of the Milky Way’s zodiac as well as Mars, Saturn, Venus and Jupiter”, the aforementioned website said.

Day 8 and 9: The Amazon

Then, it is time to explore the Amazon. You can transfer back to Cusco to catch a morning flight to Puerto Maldonado, a city that sits at the entrance to the Southern Amazon Rainforest.

Day 10: Return home

Sadly, you have arrived at the end of your trip and it’s time to go back home, but you can always come back to Peru and explore even more!
