Family advice : 5 nights/6 days in Cusco Region

Jump to last reply

Hello fellow travelers,
I am taking my family of 4 to the Cusco region for 5 nights/6 days at the end of this month (June). I have our flights booked in and out. Aside from that....nothing else is booked.

I have a 9 yr old boy and 17 yr old daughter. Both of them get bored easily. So...I dont want to spend much time, if any, in a museum. Obviously, we want to see Machu Pichu and other ruins. But we are looking for your advice on where to stay and what to do. I know my wife and daughter would like the Pisac Sunday market. But not a must. I'm concerned about altitude sickness with my wife as she has bad allergies and asthma. So staying at lower elevations would be preferred. But if you all think that 1 night in Cusco is a must...then we will do it.

I am open to acquiring a private tour guide for a few days to maximize our time. But also not a must. We travel a lot....but this is our first trip to South America.

We are also staying 2 nights in Lima inbound and 2 nights in Lima outbound. Any recommendations here would be appreciated as well!

Thanks everyone!
