This might be too little, too late, but have you checked happycow.net? I remember seeing several vegan-friendly places listed there.
When I was travelling around South America I found many of the restaurants featured on Happy Cow had appeared to have closed down. Not good when you've walked halfway across a city to get there! /;
I only spent a week or so in Peru, but I remember being pleased with the vegan selection there (although to be fair I'd just spent six months in Argentina, a place you reallly don't want to go to if you're vegan; even they soy milk's not vegan). I didn't do the Inca Trail but my vegetarian friend did and said it was fine. The places I visited were pretty tourist (and therefore vegetarian) friendly... The only time I had a problem was when I went on a tour of the Colca Canyon and in the evening the tour group stopped at this restaurant and I had to spend 15 minutes discussing my limited options with the waitress who didn't know what veganism was while everyone else tucked into llama and guinea pig. /;
