I remember my surprise years ago at seeing The Old Curiosity Shop (of Dicken's fame) in London and later marveled at the colonial era structures built on top of Inca walls in Cusco.

Direct flights between Cusco-Pisco will begin on June 14, 2018, on Thursday and Sunday. From July 2, 2018 Latam will start direct flights Cusco-Iquitos with three weekly frequencies, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.

The new Pisco flights might make these sights more popular -

While the better known Vinicunca “rainbow mountain” is visited daily by many hundreds of travelers on one- or two-day excursions from Cusco, the similar geological feature known as the Palccoyo Rainbow Range lies well off the beaten track. Situated just 20 kilometers south of its more famous rival, this spectacular destination offers visitors the chance to see and photograph a series of three mountains composed of alternating layers of yellow, red, green, blue and white geological deposits, their view uninterrupted by the handful of other travelers usually seen there on any given day.It is just a one-hour walk to the Palccoyo range, along a relatively flat trail which contrasts with the steep ascent required on the approach to Vinicunca. The route to Palccoyo passes the village of Checacupe, where a bridge has stood for hundreds of years, since the time of the Incas. The three rainbow mountains at Palccoyo can be viewed from the place where the road ends in a parking area for vehicles; however, for an even better view the short walk to the mountain range is undemanding.
The best time to visit Palccoyo is from April to November, because during the rainy season precipitation at such altitudes can sometimes fall as snow, covering the brightly colored mountain in a white mantle. Cloud cover and mist can also shroud the mountains at this time of year.

Palccoyo is situated at 4900 meters (16,000 feet) above sea level. While the altitude should of course be respected, and visitors should remain hydrated and walk at a pace they find comfortable, the flat one-hour trail to the viewing point ought not to present problems to any traveler with an average level of fitness (particularly those travelers who have already spent two or three days in the Cusco region, acclimating), unlike the far more demanding approach to the rainbow mountain at Vinicunca.

The Recanto Ecológico Rio da Prata, a natural attraction located in Bonito District  earned the TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence 2018. The region of Bonito stands out as one of the main Brazilian ecotourism areas due to the natural beauty of crystal clear rivers, waterfalls, caves, forests, fauna and flora.
Combine the South Pantanal, with its impressive wildlife, and Bonito, a model of ecotourism in Brazil and abroad.

Or take ginger tablets, like they offer you when you do Great Barrier Reef cruises. They worked for me.

Puerto Madryn Argentina is one of the best destinations for whale watching in the world. This is the area where many of the female whales come to give birth.. From June to December, southern right whales can be seen within just feet of the shore, or even closer from the boat tours, where you will get the chance to see elephant seals and sea lions as well.
The highest peak occurs from July to November, where over 700 whales arrive to the Patagonian coast.

You don't want to regret not doing it, when it's too late.
