Travel Tips for Cusco
I feel the best time to visit was in the winter season from early May to end of September when the weather conditions were still warm and pleasant, and it is not so busy. We had warm sunny, bright days but were surprised that the nights were quite cold, so we needed a Jacket! We had heard that November to April was the rainy season, but the temperatures can get as high as the upper 90s!
My hotel was in the mid range and was a reasonable price at 60 PEN per night there are of course cheaper and more expensive options depending on your requirements. Food is the same, and we found the cafes where the locals eat to be delicious and inexpensive, but we did also visit some of the more expensive restaurants too which were around 50 PEN per person. Transport by bus costs pennies. The sightseeing tours are best booked ahead of your holiday.
Probably the most important things to remember here are the low air pressure and the diuretic effect it has on you and the humidity. Keep hydrated with bottled water and do n't forget to keep as covered as possible. The sun's UV rays can still be high even at this altitude so don’t underestimate its power. Try not to eat from street vendors unless you see the food cooked freshly in front of you. The local tour guides are fantastic and so cheap!
For me, Winter season between May and September are the best times to visit as the weather is still warm and pleasant and there are not many crowds around. It is at night however quite chilly, and you will need some a jacket. The wet season between November and April is the high season with temperatures in the 90s, and it can become scorching and muggy especially before a storm. These are typically short-lived, and the sun comes out again quickly.
This private tour of the city of Cusco is a good introduction to enjoy everything that comes after your arrival. Enjoy the magic of its history, its beauty, streets, etc
