About Cusco

Cusco or Cuzco (both graphical symbols are acceptable according to the RAE, Real Academy of the Spanish language) is the main destination that you can get to know on your trips through Peru. Learn more about it in this section.The legend tells that Cusco was founded by 2 ancestral patriarchs, who, due to the design of the deity Sun, emerged from the Titicaca lake with the mission of putting in order the Andean men’s life. They would be the beginning of the vast Incan Empi...re, which as time goes by would reach its maximum glory consolidating as a powerful State. In 1911 the American explorer Hiram Bingham would refind the incan citadel to the world’s eyes with the discovery of Machu Picchu. From that day the growth of Cusco has been exponential, turning to be one of the most visited worldwide tourist destinations and favourite place for national and foreign tourists to “discover” the beauty of the Machu Picchu citadel on its travel to Cusco.

Travel tips for Cusco

-The high season goes from June to August. In that period all the prices you will find will be more expensive than in any other period of the year, because the climate becomes very nice, with a shinny sun of warm temperatures, just perfect for the people who want to get to know the best version of Cusco and the vicinity.-If you go to Machu Picchu, organize very well your time; we recommend to stay 3 days in Cusco to get to know most of the tourist attractions. Consider also key details as the availability of tickets to enter to Machu Picchu (you can see that on the web Properu); accomodation is important too specially if you go on the high season, since hotels are full if you don’t book in advance. Think of the transportation because the bus, airplane and train tickets end or double the prices during the high season.-Take your raincoat for the strong rains during the rain season (from October to March) and warm clothing fro the night, that are usually very cold.-When you get to Cusco the altitude can make you feel bad with the frightening “soroche”, an ill...ness that causes travel sickness, nauseas and headache. You can avoid it or reduce the effects taking pills, sweets and drinks based on coca leaf. Chew this plant is also an excellent medicine!-You will find moto-taxis (a common and cheap option in Peru), colectivos (a shared taxi between several people) and taxis. Those transportation services will be cheap, since the distances in Cusco are very close and the rates are not expensive. You may also find tours in Cusco close to the Plaza de Armas from 10 soles.-There are buses that leave from Cusco to Ollantaytambo, place where you take the train to Machu Picchu. You can buy tickets return trip.-Being Cusco a so much popular destination, there can be a certain unreliability on the transportation services that you reserve; that’s why it’s better to travel in tranportations of authorised companies. If you require any information or service in particular, go to the agencies and tourist authorised guides (www.agoturcusco.com) or government agencies as Dircetur and the Policía de Turismo (telf.: 0051-01-249654).
