Frequently Asked Questions:

When is the best time to visit Machu Picchu?

It will depend on your preferred climate. The dry season runs from April to October and the rainy season runs from November to March.

Dry season. In the city of Cusco (a mandatory stop for almost all visitors), the weather is rather cool throughout the period and quite cold between June and the end of August. However, Machu Picchu belongs to a subtropical climate, the days are from warm to hot, sometimes a bit cold at night. In the city of Cusco it does not rain during this time, while in Machu Picchu there can be very fast and light drizzles on some days.

Rainy season. In the city of Cusco it rains a lot in these months, but in short periods and 2 or 3 times a week, the same can be observed in Machu Picchu. It is therefore advisable to wear a waterproof jacket or rain poncho. Also, dress in layers, light clothes underneath and a little thicker above, so you are ready for any type of weather.

What kind of clothes and articles should I bring for the Perú Tour Vacation 6 Days?

Machu Picchu is located on the border of the Amazon rainforest. In other words, it has a subtropical climate (hot and humid), so the type of clothing that we recommend using is:

If you are traveling during the rainy season, the best option is to bring a raincoat in addition to waterproof and windproof clothing. But dress in layers, in a way that you can adapt your clothes to changing weather, be it cool or warm.

Even if the sun rises in the morning, always wear a warm clothing. It can be annoying to have to carry it during the visit, but it is better to be prepared for the wind in the late afternoon.

Polo shirts with long sleeves to avoid insect bites and / or annoying sunburn.

Cap and sunglasses. A light and comfortable cap will keep you cool. Bring glasses, as they will allow you to appreciate all the beauty of Machu Picchu without having to strain your eyes.

Sunscreen and insect repellent. They are absolutely necessary. Especially the repellent since the itching of mosquito bites can be very annoying. If you think insects have a particular liking for you, we also recommend not wearing short clothing of any kind.

Only use personal hygiene and health products that are eco-friendly, that do not pollute the water.

Don’t forget to bring lots of water! Staying hydrated with purified or bottled water is the best thing one can do to stay healthy and energetic while hiking.

What can’t I take to Machu Picchu?

Prohibited objects.

Our article about what not to take to Machu Picchu will give you all the information in detail.

How much luggage can I take on the train and what to do with my luggage?

The train services, whether Peru Rail or Inca Rail, only allow you to carry hand luggage, with a maximum weight of 5 kilos. Both companies offer a free storage (deposit) for this luggage. The other option is to drop you off at the hotel in Aguas Calientes. For the Machu Picchu tour, a small backpack is enough.

Who manages the ticket sales to Machu Picchu?

The body in charge is the Ministry of Culture. All travel agencies are subject to the rules and regulations established by said entity. The availability of tickets is unique for both travel agencies and independent tourists. Therefore, the purchase of them is included in the cost of any of our tours to Machu Picchu.

When should I make the ticket reservation?

It will depend on your plans. If you want to know only the citadel of Machu Picchu, 2 months in advance is recommended. But if you also want to include the Huayna Picchu mountain hike, the reservation must be made 5 or 6 months in advance, since this attraction runs out very quickly.
