This sacred place was built from seven staggered platforms surrounded by a plaza and large walls. It’s a very impressive site, and certainly not what you expect to find i...

frequently asked questions

Just as anywhere in the world, there may be pickpockets in crowded places. We suggest being aware of your surroundings, and travelling in a group, where possible.

The extra night in Casa Andina Standard Miraflores (twin, double, single room) $ 85 per room per night

2 years old

The best time to visit Peru is during the dry season, between May and October, which sees sunny days, bright blue skies in the Andes, and chilly nights. It is a wonderful time to be in Peru, especially if you plan to go on a trek, but being the peak season, early booking is crucial. Visitors will notice more rain between November and April, with the wettest months being January and February. Travel at this time does offer the advantage of fewer visitors, greener scenery, and some lower rates for flights and hotels. The Amazon also experiences more rain between November and March, but this should not deter you from visiting – the flora and fauna will still be abundant and there are always breaks in showers.

Yes, the Casa Andina Standard Cusco Plaza has a luggage room, at no additional cost.
