Cusco City

Cusco, Peru’s main tourist destination and one of the most important in the world, offers its visitors, in a unique and spectacular way, a rich historical and monumental legacy, located in a territory of multicolored mountains and valleys, lush forests and jungles, beautiful lagoons and torrential rivers. The department of Cusco is considered Cultural Patrimony of Humanity and its main attraction The Natural Sanctuary and Citadel of Machu Picchu, declared one of the new seven wonders of humanity.

Cusco offers to the traveler to enjoy the emotion of the tourism outdoors, in an environment of beautiful landscapes, to be dazzled with the testimonies of the incaica architecture, to admire the artistic wealth of the colonial churches.

Cusco, mythical capital of the Inca Empire, proudly preserves its walls and stone walls, which evoke the greatness of the children of the sun. A city full of monuments and historical relics, of myths and legends, which seem to be reborn every time you walk its centennial streets. Arriving to the city of Cusco, walking through its streets and enjoying its landscapes is to be transported directly to the past, its atmosphere originates in those who breathe it experiences of deep fascination.

La Salineras de Maras (The Salt Mines of Maras)

Located at 60 Km. (37 miles) and 7 Km. (4.3 miles) from Moray. In addition to the colonial town of Maras, the Salineras de Maras stands out at a distance of 10 km from the town of Maras (30 minutes by car or 2 hours on foot). Also called Salinas de Maras. They are salt mines whose exploitation is as old as the Tahuantinsuyo. The inhabitants channel the saline water that emanates from the ground – from a water eye called “Qoripujio” – towards pools in which, by effects of the sun, it evaporates leaving in the surface the salt that later is treated to be sold in the local market. The view of the complex of approximately three thousand wells is spectacular. The villagers show visitors their ancestral techniques and allow them to intervene in the collection.

Moray

Archaeological zone located 53 Km. northwest of Cuzco, in which an admirable system of Inca terraces stands out, conformed by enormous terraces superimposed in concentric form like a great coliseum, achieving up to 150 meters in difference of height levels. This technology allowed the ancient Inca farmers to create diverse microclimates, experiment and obtain varieties of plants that would improve their crops. Each terrace has retaining walls and is connected by a complex system of artificial irrigation channels, which is a sample of the high hydraulic technology also reached by the Incas. Considered one of the first genetic laboratories of humanity. The surroundings of Moray are an excellent area for mountain biking and hiking. Its access is in a detour in the highway that joins Chinchero with Urubamba.

Machu Picchu information

It is located to the northwest of Cusco, 129 kilometers above the Urubamba River (hence the name of the Vilcanota River), in the mountains of Vilcabamba. Its altitude is over 2380 m.a.s.l. The citadel of Machu Picchu is one of the most important archaeological sites in the whole world and is the main destination of Peru. Few man-made works show as much harmony with nature as the citadel of Machu Picchu shows us and the 33 archaeological groups that are united by means of the Inka trail.

The archaeological complex is located at the top of the mountain, Machu Picchu (in Quechua means ancient mountain or important mountain) which gives the name to the citadel and the impressive landscape that we have all seen. In front of it, the incredible mountain of Wayna Picchu appears (“young mountain”) in whose top and slopes some archaeological remains are located. Both peaks are bordered by the mighty Urubamba River that runs eastward, 400 meters below the citadel.

Altitude de Machu Picchu

It is 2490 m.a.s.l. taking as reference the Main Square of the archaeological site. According to some scientists, this may have been created 36 thousand years B.C.

Weather in Machu Picchu

As it is located in a subtropical zone, its temperature ranges from 8º to 22º C. The rainiest months are from December to April.

Humantay Lake

This lake formed by the snowmelt Humantay and Salkantay presents a unique landscape of the district of Mollepata (Anta).

As part of the route to Salkantay Mountain, you can access it by walking or mountain biking, as well as it lends itself to some other camping activities.

With a mystical air, the lagoon is visited by shamans and tourists from all over the world to leave offerings to the Pachamama, deity that represents Mother Earth in the Inca culture.

Do I need to speak Spanish to travel in Peru?

The answer is no. Without knowing how to speak Spanish you can travel all over Peru and visit as many places as you want, from the best known to the least crowded. In addition, most tourist sites have guides trained to speak English, a language with which most tourists communicate.

If you want to have a closer trip, experience tourism and get closer to the local communities, speaking Spanish will be a plus that will improve your experience. It should be noted that in the country there are communities and places where other languages are spoken, such as Quechua or Aymara. If you learn just a few basic words in Spanish, there will be no problem moving from one place to another, ordering your food in a restaurant or making a payment.

Is it safe to travel in Peru?

The security conditions in our country in general are good, especially in the cities with more tourist activity. In Peru we are aware that national and foreign travelers seek to have an adventure without unforeseen events. For that reason, in our country we bet for the security and in taking the necessary measures to give stability and confidence to the visitors.

However, local authorities always recommend taking precautions. For example, before traveling to a city, make sure you know which areas to travel through and which not. This is because there are sectors of risk (those that should be avoided), such as the valley of the Rivers Ene, Mantaro and Apurimac. It is also not advisable to travel in very remote and not very crowded areas. As in any other country, there is a risk of theft or robbery.

We advise you to be discreet and not to show anything of value when you walk down the street, as well as to avoid carrying a lot of cash. In case you have any problem, have at hand the contact details, such as the mail or the telephone number of the local police. You won’t have any problems if you follow these recommendations.

Is it expensive to travel in Peru?

The answer depends on what places you expect to travel, how long and the products and services you want to buy.

Traveling in Peru is not expensive if you decide to save. You can travel by bus to the destinations you want to visit, buy your breakfasts and lunches in local markets (where you will not miss the best local cuisine). In addition, you can also make advance reservations at the hotel where you will stay to avoid high seasons and prices. If you have a small budget, you can stay in tourist accommodations with shared rooms.

If you have a friend or acquaintance in the place you have chosen to visit, they can help you a lot with the prices, especially when haggling for products in tourist places.

Does it cost much to taste the best gastronomy in Peru?

The cuisine in our country is very varied and is among the best in the world. Restaurant prices are not excessive. As we mentioned, you can find typical dishes and delicacies in markets and small shops for no more than 10 soles.

Tourist or gourmet restaurants can have high prices between 30 or 100 soles per plate. It all depends on where you are. It is best to ask the tourist agencies for recommendations on what to eat and where.

Are vaccinations needed when traveling in Peru?

The only mandatory vaccination is against yellow fever for travelers going to jungle areas below 2300 meters above sea level. That is, for those who travel to the cities of the Amazon, Loreto, Ucayali, Madre Dios, among others. In addition, the Ministry of Health of Peru also recommends vaccination against Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B and malaria. These diseases can have serious consequences if they are not treated in time.

The health conditions in Peru are good, but in the event of any unforeseen event, have the contact details of the nearest hospitals or clinics at hand. Also remember that in the Jorge Chávez International Airport there is a free medical center to apply the vaccine against yellow fever.

Is the climate very variable in Peru?

Yes, it depends on the city you are in. If you decide to travel through Peru to jungle regions such as Loreto, for example, you will be in the jungle part of the country and the temperature can be around 40 degrees. On the other hand, if you go to the Cordillera de Huayhuash, in the Andean zone, you can expose yourself to temperatures below zero among the snow-capped mountains

That’s why we recommend that you find out very well about the weather and the best time of year to travel to the destination of your choice. That will depend on the clothes you wear, the type of food and the appropriate implements. You’ll also learn about the best festivities and events to better plan the time of year you’ll be traveling.

However, be careful with the height. Many of the most famous tourist places, such as Machu Picchu, are located more than 3000 meters above sea level. The altitude sickness, better known as soroche, generates symptoms of dizziness and nausea, which will prevent you from continuing with your adventure. Find out well the conditions of the place where you are going and take the respective precautions.

Is a visa required to visit Peru?

It is not required for almost all countries in the Americas and Western Europe. Even nations such as Chile, Ecuador and Bolivia do not need a visa or passport to enter different regions. However, we recommend that you check Peru’s diplomatic representation in your country to see if you need this document or not. If you want more information you can also go to the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Peru.

Can I exchange dollars or euros at Lima airport?

Yes, but try to change as little as possible at the airport, as the exchange rate is not very favorable. It would be best to look for exchange offices in the city or in commercial and safe areas.

Do you have to carry your passport at all times?

If you need this document to enter the country, it is advisable to carry it at all times for identification purposes. For example, if you travel by long distance bus, it is very likely that you will be asked to do so. However, for minor matters such as taking public transport, a copy should suffice.
