The most advisable while you are going to travel to Cusco is to buy a flight to Lima and from there choose between a bus or flight directly to Cusco. In Lima you will find direct flights with an average duration of 1 hour. Usually the cheapest airlines are Peruvian Airlines or Star Peru.
We also recommend you to take into consideration, that the best time to travel to Cusco is during the months of June, July and August (no rain). It is also true that during these months everything is more expensive and requires accommodation bookings and services well in advance.In May and September the weather is still very good and stable but sometimes rain can occur.
Usually travels from North America or Europe do not need VISA to travel to Latin America. But always it is necessary to present a valid passport. VISA is not required if your country is a member of Mercosur and all citizens of these countries can enter Peru just showing your ID.
The maximum stay is granted 183 days (can not be extended). If you need another type of visa (business, study, work, etc.) you have to deal with it previously in the Peruvian consulate.
If you’re underage you need to enter in the company of your parents. If you are traveling with father and son (s) you need marriage certificate, birth certificate of the child.
Below you will find a video with information for tourists entering Peru.
The climate in Peru varies depending on where you are, during the months of “summer” December to March usually it is very hot on the coast, but in the highlands (Andes) the rainy season begins.
The season of “Winter” from May to August in Peru characterized by high humidity on the coast, but in the highlands (Andes) gets very hot during the day (while you’re exposed to the sun), but if you’re under shade you can freeze as especially at night makes a hellish cold, the temperature can reach up to -14 ° C.
That’s why the people of the Andes even during the day wear coats and outerwear, as the cold in the Peruvian highlands may surprise you in the least expected moment.
We recommend using sunscreen high as well as the famous “cocoa butter” to protect lips.
This is a problem that no one has been able to overcome without some help. After arriving to Andes we highly recommend you to drink a lot of herbal tea and coca tea and do only short walks to acclimatize to the height.
We also recommend eating as little as possible during the first 2 days since digestion is slow in height and produces many gases.
So it is advisable to buy at any drugstore pills against altitude sickness. But before taking any pills, always consult it with a doctor.
