Peru/Machu Picchu/Cuzco suggestions

Jump to last reply

Hi ,
I've read many of the helpful posts here. My trip is for 8/11-8/18 and have more questions that some of you may have answers:

8/11 arrive Lima (noon) - Hilton Miraflores
8/12-8/13 explore Lima
8/14 fly to Cuzco, direct to Urubamba (hotel San Agustin), explore SV,
8/15 Machu Pichu (hotel TBD)
8/16-8/17 explore Cuzco
8/18 morning flight Cuzco to Lima then LAX

1) I was planning to stay in Urubamba and then a different hotel in Aguas Caliente. Mostly because I perceive a long day will want to rest sooner and not spend 1.5 hours back to Urubamba. Does this make sense? If I stay at Aquas Caliente, where can I find a hotel that has a room for 2adults/2 kids? Sumaq hotel pictures shows it can do it but all booking sites including their own seem to limit to 3 occupants. No reponse from inquiry to Sumaq yet.

2) Where can I buy a sim card for my phone that will have data service so I can use the internet when wifi not available?

3) from Lima airport to Hilton, will the taxis hold 4 passengers including luggage or should I plan private xfers?
