Peru is an exhausting destination. Due to logistics, many wake up calls are very early (5am) with lots of walking at altitude. You feel you need a vacation after your Peru vacation. Hence, I recommend adding a free day here and there to lay back and enjoy the destination and hotel.
Pamper yourself while in Peru. The value is great. So do use the hotel spa, go to higher-end restaurants, etc. You will only be in Peru once, so make it extra special.
Peru is a special place in the world. You can experience the desert coast, snow glacier mountains, and jungle rainforest in one vacation. If time permits, do consider doing a hike or outdoor activity (2 day inca trail, 4 day inca trail, downhill mountain biking, etc) and consider a visit to Puerto Maldonado.
Splurge on a high-end hotel. Once you go 5-star, you will not want to go back. At least one night, at a special 5 star hotel and lodge and a highlight of your trip. Again, for what a 3 star costs in New York city, you can get a unique 5 star in Peru. Totally worth it!
Do learn about Peru’s history before visiting. There is a ton on Youtube. If you enjoy reading, then The Last days of the Incas (by Kim MacQuarrie) is a must. You will have a much better context of the history and dramatic value of the places you will be visiting (and sometimes sleeping as some of our hand picked hotels are Inca temples).
