I'm planning to take the Wonder Peru Tourist bus that stops at tourist sites on the way to Puno. On the way back, I am taking an overnight bus with Cruz Del Sur that arrives back at Cusco around 4 am. I then have a flight to catch back to the US at 9 am.

Part of me wants to travel up the Great River, see the meeting of the waters of the Tapajos and the Amazon and once in Santarem go to Alter do Chao since from what I've read here in TT it seems quite worth it....
