It is in US Dollars. Because it is an international currency and is handled by most countries.
How long in advance should I make my reservation for the tour to Machu Picchu with Huaynapicchu in one day?
For this tour, it is advisable to make your reservations at least 60 days before, if you can make the reservation much earlier it is much better.
We request this time in advance due to the availability of Huaynapicchu income, which is limited to a very small amount (400 people divided into 2 shifts), and they sell out quickly.
To secure your ticket to Huaynapicchu, make your reservation well in advance of your travel date.
The city of Cusco is at 3350 meters above sea level, if you come from a city at sea level, surely you will feel the blow of the height, the lack of oxygen, the agitated breathing, the headache, these will be the symptoms.
But do not worry, having some coca leaf mates (which are given in the hotels), resting the first day of arrival in Cusco, it will be enough to make you feel very well and you can do the tour to Machu Picchu normally.
When you arrive at the Cusco airport (Alejandro Velazco Astete International Airport), from where you take your bags, there are several taxi drivers offering taxi service, I recommend that you ask the taxi drivers: How much is the cost to the address of your hotel? Normally the cost is about S /. 15.00 to S /. 20.00 Soles for the taxi, remember to always pay the price of the service beforehand.
Note: There are some hotels that include the transfer from the airport to the hotel, and they actually wait for you with your name on a sign, and take you to a car (taxi), please ask the person if the taxi is already paid through the hotel and talk to the driver, who will pay for the transfer?
I give you this warning because it happens many times that hotels offer the transfer service and in the end the car driver charges you for the transfer service and it may cause you inconvenience.
In the City of Cusco, being a tourist place, there are many accommodation options from luxury hotels, tourist hotels, hostels, hostels and airbnb.
My recommendation to consider which hotel to book, you should consider the location, which is close to the Plaza de Armas of Cusco, this is basically so that you are close to restaurants, galleries, museums and can better explore the city of Cusco.
Another consideration you must have to reserve your accommodation are the comments left by travelers who have already stayed at the hotel, who have positive comments and a good rating.
