Next after you book your trip I suggest getting travel insurance. I think I will use Travel Guard as you can cover pre-existing conditions. You will need to purchase the insurance within 14 days of purchasing your tickets in order to cover your pre existing conditions.

You will purchase for the amount of the ticket then every time you add something to the trip such as airfare or addition nights in Peru or additional hikes you will have up to 14 days to increase the amount of your coverage of your insurance.

Here is a link for Travel Guard you can also call them if you have questions
