Cusco is a very safe city. Not that you have to walk with your cameras and iPhones on hand, but it is relatively a very safe city. Almost everything could be done by walking. And walking to the main attractions, Main Square, museums and places to visit is not a problem. The house is located in a safe gated street at 6 blocks walking distance from the Plaza.
December to February is rainy season, so come prepare.
June and July is the busiest and coldest season. Plan ahead of time and purchase your tickets on line in advance.
Besides your visit to the wonderful Machu Picchu Sanctuary -which it could be done in one full day - there are other daily tours to consider. Please inquire if interested. Cusco is more than Machu Picchu and a visit is not really complete if you don't visit the Sacred Valled (Pisac, Ollantaytambo, Chinchero, Maras Moray, Tipon and others).
Interaction with Guests
I come and go. So we will probably see each other during the morning or in the afternoon. However, I am easily reachable when needed. I practically sleep with my phone and I like to use (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) application because it is a fast and reliable service here in Cusco.
My housekeeper is in the house most of the time -so even though she does not speak English, she'll understand if you need me for some reason.
The house is in a cul-de-sac, very quiet and very safe street. Not that the neighborhood is not safe, but it feel just extra safer having to access a gate to enter in the street in which my house is located.
My house/offce is not right in the busy touristic center but neither too far, it is just six blocks away (walking distance). If you are like many of my previous guests, living in this part of the city will make you feel more “involved" in real local life than if you were to stay in a crowed youth hostel near Plaza de Armas. As well, there are plenty of places all the same, for tourists who like to drink beers and go to Starbucks for coffee. .
There are two supermarkets half a block away from the house, and plenty of local businesses (pharmacies, bakeries, restaurants).
AIRPORT PICK UP AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Please note that we can arrange our driver to go to the airport to pick you up if you provide us with your flight information at least 24 hours in advance of your arrival.
This service is not included in your reservation and therefore you will have to pay the driver directly upon arrival.
The cost of this service is 20 soles, which is an approximate USD $6 and it will be much less than if you were to get a taxi at the airport on your own.
Please inquire if interested.
Other Things to Note
May thru August is considered "high season". This means that you should plan your trip in advance. If you come to Cusco with "nothing" organized or booked, you take the chance of paying much more than the regular prices or not finding what you need.
Unless you are doing any of the three treks: Inka Trail, Salkantay Trek or Lares Trek, you could only go to Machu Picchu by train, so the first thing to do is to purchase your tickets online. You will also need the entrance ticket to the Sanctuary in Machu Picchu and the round trip bus from/to Aguas Calientes to the Sanctuary. These two things can be purchased upon arrival if you cannot purchase them online.
Trains to Machu Picchu depart from two different stations: Poroy & Ollantaytambo. Poroy is only 20 minutes outside Cusco. Ollantaytambo is 2 hours. Therefore tickets to/from Ollantaytambo are a little cheaper.
From/to Ollantaytambo you will have to take a minivan.
I offer some tour options -including Machu Picchu- that I will be sending to you for your information. These other tours can be reserved with 24 hours in advance.
