Capital of the Inca Empire for three centuries, World Heritage-listed Cusco is now a major tourist destination, drawing nearly 2 million annual tourists with its well-preserved colonial architecture and proximity to Machu Picchu.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Ayahuasca Retreat and Wachuma. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Moray and Piquillacta. Pinkuylluna Mountain Granaries and Sacred Valley of the Incas will appeal to history buffs. Explore Cusco's surroundings by going to Iglesia de Santiago Apostol (in Ollantaytambo), Complejo Arqueologico Chinchero (in Chinchero) and Cerveceria Willkamayu (in Urubamba). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Santuario Animal de Cochahuasi, head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, admire the landmark architecture of San Pedro Apostol de Andahuaylillas, and stroll around Huasao Bosque de los Ents, del Senor de los Anillos.

To see where to stay, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Cusco trip planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport. March in Cusco sees daily highs of 68°F and lows of 46°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
