Cusco Hotel & Travel Guide
Standing sentinel over the Sacred Valley high in the Peruvian Andes, Cusco is the apex of South American archaeology. The ancient comes alive in this one-time Incan capital, currently home to most thriving and visible indigenous cultures in Peru. It's no secret that Cusco rose to international fame as a home base for travelers making the pilgrimage to Machu Picchu, the continent's most breathtaking archaeological site. However, hotels in Cusco also provide intimate access to the city, which is a must-see destination itself.
Out and About in Cusco
Start in the heart of Cusco, the Plaza de Armas, where you can admire colonial architecture and citizens with colorful traditional clothing. Be sure to browse some of the market stalls and street-side shops where you can purchase some of these artisanal wares yourself! Traverse the steep and narrow streets of the photogenic San Blas neighborhood, or head outside the city to Sacsayhuaman and relive an important battle between conquistadors and Incan forces. If you're feeling spiritual, pay a visit to the ruins of the Qurikancha, the timeworn Temple of the Sun. Curious travelers will enjoy the city's one-of-a-kind museums, including the Potato Museum, the Museum of Traditional Textiles, and the Museum of Sacred, Magical, and Medicinal Plants.
Eating and Drinking
Cuisine in Cusco is every bit as unique as its attractions. Try delicacies you won't find outside the Andes, like alpaca steak and cuy, or guinea pig. Soda lovers should sip on the bright-yellow Inca Kola while fans of Chinese food might want to check out a "Chifa," or place that combines Peruvian and Chinese flavors. Numerous restaurants line the streets surrounding any of Cusco's squares, and you won't be able to leave without trying at least one dish centered around the region's most celebrated food – potatoes.
