Enter to win a trip to Peru, which includes something on everybody’s bucket list, Machu Picchu.
The sweepstakes is sponsored by Eagle Creek luggage, LAN and TAM airlines and Goway travel.
The grand prize is round trip airfare to Cusco with five nights accommodation and $750 in Eagle Creek Gear. You’ll have five days to visit the nearby Sacred Valley, Pisac Ruins, Maras Salt Pools, and unforgettable Machu Picchu, with guided tours.
Second place winners get $750 in Eagle Creek gear, and $500 for third place winners.
Five days isn’t enough to hike the legendary Inca Trail, but it’s an easy daytrip by special tourist train between Cusco and Macchu Pichu.
The Maras Salt Pools have been worked since the days of the Incas and Aztecs, including these days by their direct descendents, like one man I met working his family’s plot on the terraced hillside to mine salt.
Be sure to leave enough time in Cusco itself to explore the jewelry shops and art galleries. One of my favorite pieces of jewelry is a turquoise and silver bracelet I bought in Cusco.
