Cusco/Machu Picchu Trip

Jump to last reply

Hello I need some advice on my Cusco trip.

We will be landing in Cusco from Lima on March 20th and flying back to Lima on March 23rd. I havent bought these tickets but Im trying to get to cusco as early as possible.

March 20 - Land in cusco in the morning, take a shuttle/bus to Ollay. Should I stay in Ollay for the night and catch the early train in the morning to Aguas Calientes, or just take a train to AC that same day??

My wife gets motion sickness really easily, so idk if the ride from cusco to Ollay plus the train ride to AC would be too much for 1 day, or is it a smooth ride??

March 21 - Visit Machu Picchu. In the afternoon catch train back to Ollay. Should we stay here the night and go back to cusco the next day?? or is there anything we could see/do around Ollay for 1 afternoon, and we would go back to cusco early the next morning??

March 22 - Stay/see cusco all day.
March 23 - Stay/see cusco during the morning. Catch the flight back to Lima in the afternoon.

Thanks for your help.
