    Royal Inca II - Beautiful and convenient


    We stayed at the very beautiful Royal Inca II hotel in Cusco. The inside of the hotel looked like a city street with a large balcony around the square. There is a five story mural in the lobby and dining room area that is beyond description. The staff could not have been more helpful. Although we had no problem with the altitude in Cusco, many do. The staff greeted us with Cocoa tea to help us adjust to the altitude and avoid altitude sickness. The rooms were very large and very clean. There was a friendly bar in the hotel and also a dining room. We did not eat here, but we did use the bar on several occasions. We could not have asked for a better experience.

transportation Cuzco-Urubamba

by sandiwo

I was unable to get reservations by train from Cuzco to Machu Picchu, but space is available from Urubamba to Machu Picchu. Is there transportation other than train from Cuzco to Urubamba or Ollantaytambo?

You will have no problem taking a bus, collectivo or taxi from Cusco to Urubamba. Ask around while in Cusco to determine where the bus or collective departs from. It is a regularly traveled route.

Tip: Since you're going to Urubamba, take the collectivo from there to Ollantaytambo and spend the night there. Outstanding Inca ruins in Ollantaytambo (your cusco archaeological sites ticket includes the ruins at Ollantaytambo). Spend a day in Ollantaytambo, then catch the train from there to Aguas Calientes. Many hotels in Aguas Calientes, and there is a shuttle-bus service from there to Machu Picchu.

Buen Viaje,

also on the way back, Ollantaytambo to Cusco by road it might be cheaper and faster then by train. A lot of van to share, taxi are waiting the train.

Right on - Ollantaybambo is a really lovely place too, lots of little lodges, restaurants - great for a night - you will save money too on that ripoff train, which is also amazingly slow, can drive you crazy - If I had to do it again - that is what I would do!

Does the train really go through Urubamba?
Between the Urubamba and Ollantaytambo, the later is by far the more interesting. It is well worth a stay both for the ruins overlooking the city and the old city itself. Transportation to either is easy by road.

Travel Tips for Cusco

Bus Station to Plaza de Armas


When exiting the bus station doors you will immediately be bombarded with taxistas, local taxi drivers, offering you the “best” rates to the center of town. Whether you are at an airport or bus station, they are the ones that pay a fee to enter the area so they will always charge you more. After all, “eres el rico”, you’re the rich one, being that you’re not Peruvian much less Cusquenean. Always exit the premises and walk past the guarded entrance.
Again, we’re in this to win it, so we’re walking, but if you want to take a taxi, this would be the moment. (Pay no more than s./5, as a local you would pay s/.3) Hang a left outside the entrance and pass the street vendors selling fresh juice and treats. (Unless you have a stomach of steel, you’re not ready for this yet; especially after you smell the river behind them.) This road leads out to 28 de Julio where you will see a large statue of Pachacutec to the left and if you’re lucky, llamas grazing in the grass. It should be s./2 if you want to climb the stairs to the top of the tower.
From there follow the more recently finished pedestrian walkway up to the next round-a-bout where you will find a gas/petrol station, grifo. Follow the road to the right of the station which will start you on your journey up Avenida el Sol. (If you arrive to Cusco by bus in the morning, this walk is nothing short of magical as you’ll feel like one the first to breathe this fresh Andean morning air as the sun illuminates your path ascending to the plaza and further, Sacsayhuaman.) Stop off at the fountain for early morning photos and if the artisanal market is open, enjoy your first efforts at bargaining in Cusco. This artisanal market is the largest in the city and is a good first place to stop off to gather ideas of how many suitcases or backpacks you may be purchasing to carry all your “authentic/handmade” llama or alpaca products home. As you progress up Avenida el Sol, it will be hard to resist entering into all of the other smaller markets, and why should you?
The next main attraction will be Qorikancha. Once the Temple of the Moon and Sun, the Dominican priests built their cathedral directly on top of the sturdy Incan base. It’s s./ 10 to enter and s./10 to enter the museum under the field below where you can see Incan mummies. Almost there! (Did you know that you’ve been walking over a river since you made the turn at el grifo? Three main rivers, once used by the great Incan Empire, run beneath three main streets in Cusco.) Continue past the early risers selling alpaca sweaters on the corners and you will dead end at the top of Avenida el Sol. Left will lead you to La Merced monastery but we want to turn right to the Plaza de Armas. After all, this is what you came to see right? Mornings typically fill the plaza with municipal street workers and if you arrive in time and don’t smell like a backpacker you may be able to enter the main cathedral for free between 9-10am for mass, misa. Otherwise, you’ll be shelling out s./25 to enter. The cathedral across the plaza contains the most ornate interior and the famous “Cuy Last Supper”.
So, you’re there. Hang out in the plaza and enjoy your first victory, enjoy one of the many coffee shops around the plaza, and if you want to be shamefully touristy grab some comfort food at the McDonalds next to the cathedral. It’s really not a bad walk if the altitude doesn’t defeat you first. If you feel a shortness of breath, dizziness, headache, or prickly needles in your limbs, stop and drink water. Rest, hydration and coca tea really are the best remedies for altitude sickness, sorocha.

Trips around

by SirRichard

Cuzco may be a good basecamp for cultural or sport activities around. There are many agencies, specially in Plateros street near Plaza de Armas, offering tours to visit Sacred Valley, rafting in the wild waters of the Urubamba river, hiking, trekking, jungle tours and lodges...
at very competitive prices!

Commune with Llamas, Alpacas and Vicunyas

by AKtravelers

The first place Jose (the owner of our B&B) took us in Peru's Sacred Valley was a llama/alpaca farm. Here, we could feed, pet and even hold llamasand alpacas. We were given stalks of alfalfa, which immediately attracted scores of llamas and alpacas, who were eager to tear it out of our hands. As forthe few vicunyas on the farm, they were kept in a seaparate area -- apparently they're a bit wilder than their more domesticated relatives.
The llamas and alpacas at the farm were very friendly and had beautiful eyes. There were a couple of baby alpacas who had entered the world only three days before. One of the farm workers caught one and allowed Sarah to hold it in her arms as the rest of the alpaca community stood around and watched.

There are plenty of flights into Cusco. If you are low on time, this is the fastest way to get into Cusco. If you're arriving from outside Peru, then it's probably best to grab a plane to Cusco from Lima.
