travel cusco to lima

by mcneil01

Hi, im planning to do the inca trail begining of march 2010 (as heard its shut feb) and i need to get down to santiago to catch my flight to new zealand (not yet booked yet as not sure how long will take me). does anyone know about any buses cusco to lima to get internal flight down or overnight bus? or does anything (flight/buses) go from cusco direct to santiago?
Cheers
Christina

For the bus check the website of Cruz del Sur.
For airlines check the airlines: TACA, LAN, StarPeru

You may want to check my Peru transportation pages where I explain it all, including websites.

Re: travel cusco to lima

by paulc12

just read your post, i´m in cusco at the moment and they said on the radio today that the trail will be closed until the beginning of april! just thought i´d let you know so you can contact your travel agency and confirm everything with them. it´d be shocking if you got that surprise when you arrived, just like i did haha.

in saying that though it might open earlier so if at worst you´re stuck in cusco its not the worst place to be. so much cool stuff to do besides the famous inca trail i have discovered. it was kind of a blessing not doing it because we´ve seen a lot of less popular just as cool stuff. for cheap.

as from cusco to santiago (chile i assume?) if you have extra cash try and get a flight to lima and a flight down, otherwise you´re gonna spend about 36-48hrs (probably longer)in bus transit. not fun.

of not buses leave for lima all the time they´re around $40-$50 us, pay a little more and get a good bus you´ll thank yourself. its an overnight bus takes around 14hrs.

hope this helps good luck!

Don't bother-the poster never came back to check if his question had been answered.

Moreover the info about the closing of Machu Picchu has been all over the forums already.

Travel Tips for Cusco

Try your hand at Sapo

by JessieLang

Sapo is a common bar game. You throw small weighted disks onto something that looks like a tall nightstand. There are holes in the top, and compartments in the drawer underneath are assigned point values. You get the highest scores if you can get the disks into hard to hit places on the top, such as the open mouth of a small frog statue.

Chicharia

by lashr1999

Coming back from Ollantaytambo and heading back to Cusco we decided to ask our guide if he could take us to a Chicharia. The guide said he knew of one and would take us there since we were a good group.

What is a Chicharia, you may ask. It is a place that sells chicha which is traditional corn liquor that people in Peru drink. Chicha sort of tastes like the liquid in a can of corn with liquor in it. It is cloudy, tart, has a big foamy head and gets it’s color from the corn being used to make it. Our guide said to find a traditional Chicharia look for a broomstick with red ribbons, flowers and corn attached to it. Newer ones have signs to tell you chicha is served there.

When we first entered the yard area of the Chicharia we were each given a coin. We were told that Peruvians play a game to pass time. We were supposed to throw our coin into the mouth of a pig statue from far away. None of the people in our group got it in.

When walking around the yard area we saw an area which housed guinea pigs. We were told that on special occasions cuy (guinea pig) was served with the chicha. When I saw what a guinea pig looked like at this place, I no longer had a desire to eat one. They looked kind of like a fuzzy tribble or mouse. I would forever equate eating cuy with eating a poor Peruvians family pet, after that.

Next, we went into a room with a few wooden benches and tables. There were a few older ladies holding pitchers of chicha. Our guide told us that the recipe for chicha is passed on by oral tradition from mother to daughter. We were each given a glass and pitchers of chicha were handed around. Before we drank, we were told we had to give thanks to the earth god for giving us the chicha to drink. This is done by spilling a little chicha in four corners in the form of a square. I drank a cup or 2 after that. We encouraged our guide to chug a pitcher of Chicha. He did so after we cheered him on.

The view from Hostal Resbalosa

by SirRichard

From the terrace of the Hostal Resbalosa ((Resbalosa street, 494) you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Plaza de Armas and some other roofs of Cuzco.
You don't have to sleep there to enjoy it, you can go and have a coffee there, or even just enter the place and go to the terrace, take the photo and leave, nobody will stop you.

dont miss the pisco

by salem666 about sumaq misky and nicks sports bar

it costs a little more to eat there, but the kitchen is open and the portions are big. when we were there, we had to wait for half an hour, which wasnt a problem as they have a very comfortable bar on the side of the restaurant, but better if you book a table. a good selection of local and gringo food. the bar alongside has 4 tellies showing evry sport you could ask for. massive england is playing as the owner is english and is very happy when england wins, so happy to buy us a drink when we were there!!!!!!!!!!!! cuban mojito with 7 year havana club in a long glass
