Simply provide your flight information. .Our drivers are professional and experience local drivers with whom we have been working for years already. Make use of this service by providing your flight information after making your reservation. The cost for the service (20 soles) is cheaper than what they charge at the airport and we will even pay for your pick up from the airport if your reservation is a minimum of two nights. We'll monitor your arrival to the apartment where we will be waiting for you. Our driver will go to the airport with a sign on hand. The sign will have your name written on it (the name in your reservation or the one you will be providing us if different) -so after picking up your luggage, exit out throughout the airport door and look for your name in the outside crowd. The ride from the airport to the condominium is 15 mins approx. Please inquire if you have a particular request.

Cusco is a very cosmopolitan city full of tourism. However, the neighborhood in which the duplex is located has the local flavor and tranquility the center of town has already lost. Neither too far away from the Main Square (only 6 blocks walking distance /10 to 15 minutes), and neither too closed that you won't be able to sleep with all the activity and noise beating all night.
Only three blocks down the street is one of our favorite coffee shops, La Valeriana. It is open early for breakfast and lunch, and close late for dinner or supper. This is an inexpensive place where you won't feel rush. Wi-Fi is available.
Supermarkets are right outside the entrance gate
Feel like a local as you wander through the streets of Pavitos, Tres Cruces or along Avenida Grau. I'll share more of my favorites places and routes when you get here.
Cusco is not a tremendously big city that you need to take a taxi to be somewhere. Everything (almost everything) could be done by walking. But taxis in the city and around are not expensive, an excerpt from the airport, there are quite cheap.
The city is also full of buses, but I would not recommend them. They are usually crowded and you expose yourself to pickpockets.
Please note the following;
CHECK IN TIME: STARTS AT 12PM. Early check in may be available so please inquire. If it is not, you are welcome to drop your bags at my house, which is literally right across the apartment- and come back later.
CHECK OUT TIME: ENDS AT 10AM. If you are taking a late flight or a bus that usually leaves at night please let me know. You still need to empty the apartment by 10am, but could drop your bags at the storage room in my house and pick them up at an accorded time.
PICK UP FROM THE AIRPORT as a courtesy to our guests. We can coordinate your PICK UP from the airport (only). Simply request it after making your reservation by providing the following information to us.
(1) Flight company, (2) Flight number, and (3) Exact time of arrival into Cusco airport.
We will send our driver to meet you and bring you to your apartment. Our driver will be carrying a sign with your name on it. Simply look for your name after picking up your bags and exiting the airport.
Our driver's car is good for up to 4 people with regular bags *. If your group exceed 4 you will need a second car. We will arrange this service for you but you will have to pay for this extra car. The cost will be 20 soles, which is cheaper than if you were to hire a taxi from the airport on your own. Please inquire !
CURRENCY and EXCHANGE RATE The currency in Peru is EL NUEVO SOL. The exchange rate is approximately USD 1= S/. 3.30) If you bring American dollars or Euros, do not exchange them in airports or banks. Their exchange rate will be lower of what you could get in the streets, here in Cusco. However, and this is important, if you bring US dollars, make sure you bring NEW BILLS. All damaged or broken bills won't be accepted in Cusco.
This is an entire two-floor apartment just for you.
