Living in Cusco

by aggarcias

Hello,

I'm a student and I'll be living in Cusco from August-December of '09 and studying at the Universidad San Ignacio de Loyola. If you have any general advice about living in PerĂº long term, especially any good places to pass time in the city, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

If you really want to meet locals, go salsa dancing (at Mythology on the northwest corner of Plaza de las Armas; every night 9-11pm). If you have two left feet, take a class first at Salseros Cusco up the street on the corner of Calle Colombia and Venezuela Number - 7 Collasuyo. There are lots of expats at Mythology too, so you don't even have to speak Spanish.

That sounds great, do you know of any other good bars/places to eat late night there? My Spanish is pretty good, there shouldn't be a language barrier

Hi there,

I was in Cusco in January of 2008 and loved the city. Mama Africa's is a good disco. Upstairs on the Plaza. On the corner next to it is another good disco also upstairs. The Irish Pub on the other side of the Plaza also is a good hangout with good pub grub. There are some good cheap places to eat just off the plaza on some of the side streets. I don't remember any names though.

Enjoy Cusco. It is a great city.

Tom

The upstairs disco here mentioned is Mythology. I've also heard good things about Mama Africa, but never been. There's another salsa place down the street with live bands some nights (and I think it's a restaurant too) upstairs on Calle San Juan de Dios just south of Plateros, on the east side of fthe street (you'll hear the music from below) :)

Travel Tips for Cusco

landscapes

by kare_ab

Just take a bus and go out of the city - the amazing landscapes are waiting for you! I enjoyed very much the nature between Cusco and Urubamba. Take a bus and just tell the driver you wanna stop right here in the nowhere :-D ;o)

Dance

by Jim_Eliason

I happened to be lucky enough to stumble upon a parade on my first night here. A group of children were dressed in traditional costumes dancing while a band played. They made their way to the cathedral and then danced about a 1/2 hour outside before going in.

San Blas

by Paul2001

From the exterior San Blas is just a bland looking church when compared to the others that you find in Cusco, however inside it has one important aspect that makes a visit worthwhile. That is the exquisitely carved pulpit. Some call this the finest example of wood carving in the Americas and to be honest I have yet to have seen anything comparable in my travels. It is not known for certain who exactly carved this masterpiece but it was most likely the work of a 17th century native craftsman named Tomas Tuyro Tupa. The pulpit was carved out of cedar in the Churrigueresque style. Beyond the pulpit there is actually very little inside of the chapel that is distinguished. Entry to the church is included in the Cusco Tourist Ticket.
Of note about the picture posted here. I was not allowed to take a photo of the pulpit itself as San Blas as in all the churches in Cusco, photos are not permitted. I scanned this image from a postcard I purchased outside on the square.

Baby Alpaca Wool

by Alisonchilla

If you want to buy wool to make your own sweaters, scarfs, hats, etc., there is a store close to the Plaza de Armas where you can buy "baby" alpaca wool. Sorry, I forget the name, but it is up the street from Alpaca 911.

Delicious, even without the cuy!

by rphhas1 about Inka Grill

Everyone told us we should go to this restaurant, as it is known as the premiere eating experience in Cusco. I was concerned that it might be an overrated tourist trap. Upon the recommendation of a local we met while marooned in the Lima airport, we decided to make the trip. The food was well worth the hype and cost. It was well worth it!
