Which is the best time to visit Machu Picchu?

Any time is good to visit Machu Picchu. We recommend the dry season (March to October) because it is conducive to enjoying a brighter sun. However, at this time there are a greater number of visitors.

On the other hand, in the rainy season (from October to March) rainfall is more frequent. At this time there are fewer visitors so you can enjoy the attractions with greater freedom.

Therefore, we consider that the best time to visit the Wonder of the World are the months in between: April-May and September-October.

How to get there from Lima?

All flights to Peru land in Lima. From the capital of the country to the city of Cusco there are 1120 kilometers. There are two ways to get to the capital of the Inca Empire:

By plane: Lima-Cusco flights take an average of 1 hour and generally cost $ 100 or $ 120.

By bus: Lima-Cusco bus services take an average of 20 hours and generally cost $ 40 or $ 50.
