Cusco and the Sacred Valley Travel Guide

When to Go

Cusco's high season is June through early September (winter in the southern hemisphere) and the days around the Christmas and Easter holidays. Winter means drier weather and easier traveling, but higher lodging prices and larger crowds. Prices and visitor numbers drop dramatically during the November through March summer rainy season, except around the holidays.
