Cusco, Peru-3

Getting Around

Taxi – usually 4 soles to get anywhere around town, 5 soles after 9pm

Walk – The city of Cusco is small enough that you can walk safely pretty much anywhere you need to go, just use more caution after 10pm.

Can’t Miss

  • Grab lunch at the Sunday Food Festival (La Feria) in the Plaza de San Francisco.
  • Sample the street food and drink. My recommendations: don’t miss a taste of the anticuchos, choclo con queso, and the quinoa drink you’ll see at every cart in the mornings.
  • Visit the fortress of Sacsayhuaman.
  • Shop in the Mercado San Pedro.
  • As much as you may not want to, you must try cuy, the local delicacy more familiarly known as guinea pig.
  • Wander the narrow streets of Cusco’s bohemian district, San Blas.
  • Visit the Museo Inka.
