flights into cusco

by fgotte

does anyone know how it is getting a flight same day in lima to cuzco? Im flying standby and cant book a flight as i might not make it there on exact date... Ive heard you can get a cheap flight maybe with student discount in the airport to cuzco. anyone know?

It's not advisable to purchase airfares on the day of departure. Buy it well in advance for better rates, and for prices you can live with. A standby ticket may cost you a fortune. Check Star Peru's website for airfares or a Peruvian domestic metasearch flight engine called "apunake" that's affiliated with "enjoyperu." By the way, I doubt that "student" discounts apply for flights unless you go with an international student-related travel discounter.

Good Luck & Enjoy Beautiful Peru!

This does not sound right to me. Last minute discounts disappeared years ago (the airlines figured out that they were losing money because people were trying to do exactly what you are planning to do), with full-fare being offered for standby / last minute flights.

Booking in advance is the best chance at discounted fares.

Student fares? Usually only part of a package that includes accomodation or a tour. I've never heard of it for just airfare. Discount seats (even for 2-year olds) are the same price.

Unless things have changed, there were several morning flights and several evening flights, but flights during the middle part of the day did not exist.

There have never been evening flights to Cusco as Cusco airport is a "visual only airport". I explain that on my pages.

Correct - I should have said (late) afternoon flights. We had the same issue in getting to Iquitos. It seems that there were flights out in the morning and absolutely nothing until later on in the afternoon. This meant we got to see a lot more of Lima airport than we wanted to on both our trip out to Iquitos and the Iquitos through to Cusco via Lima.

That's right, no afternoon/late afternoon or evening flights between Lima and Cusco due to wind/weather like Noel said.

Travel Tips for Cusco

How to See the Most for the Least!

by kucha

One of the best deals in Cusco is a tourist ticket that gets you into 16 of the most important places of interest in and around Cusco, including some of the major draws in the Sacred Valley of the Incas!

In fact, you cannot get into many churches and museums without it.

The full ticket costs $22 for adults and $5 for students and children, is valid for 10 days (do not lose it, or you will be forced to purchase a new one), and is available at Casa Garcilaso, on Plaza Regocijo at the corner of Garcilaso and Heladeros

Inti Raymi - Fiesta del Sol - Corpus Christi

by chancay

In Cusco several big celebrations take place, as well christian festivities as also festivities based on Inca traditions. One important christian celebration is the christ holiday "Feast of Corpus Christi" The most important Inca tradition is the "Fiesta del Sol (IntiRaymi), a celebration that has not been celebrated for 500 years until the year 1941 when the celebrations started again. Sometimes the feasts take place on the same day, so the same people celebrate e.g. in the morning the christian tradtion and leave in the afternoon the city up to Sacsayhuayman to celebrate Inti Raymi.

On this celebration there are often counted more than 50000 visitors.

The Andean Explorer to Lake Titicaca

by kucha

This spectacular rail journey begins in Cusco and travels south to the beautiful city of Puno, on the shores of Lake Titicaca.

On the journey, the train makes a gentle climb to higher, and cooler, altitudes. The first half of the journey is dominated by the magnificent Andean mountains which tower over the deep valleys of the Huatanay River. It then reaches the gentler, rolling Andean Plains, where vicuña and alpaca can be seen. We traveled on the Andean Explorer, the glass-walled observation car provides the perfect opportunity to view the beautiful scenery.

The journey is broken by a scenic stop at La Raya, which is also the highest point on the route.

I went to the small town of Andahuaylillas were the Sistine chapel of the Americas is located. The beautiful chapel contains breathtaking frescos, paintings, and a lavish altar. As I had expected, however, the chapel doesn't match the Sistine chapel in the Vatican. Heck, it is not even the most beautiful chapel in Peru. Nevertheless, it is beautiful in its own right and it’s amazing how such a marvel can be built in such a small town.

(about one hour by local bus)

Taking the taxi...

by bicycle_girl

In Cuzco, anything goes. On this picture, the custumer is sitting in the front, with her baby behind her back and no seatbelt. The taxi drivers are driving like maniacs, and if they are given the opportunity, they will try to sell you a private tour!!! Don't say yes for anything!!! Of note, to get to your hotel, you can pay as high as 15 soles, and on the way back the hotel stewardess told me "pay no more than 5"!!!

Careful with whom will drive you to destination!
