What to bring
For Explorape, the best time or month to visit Cusco is June, around the 24th of June, the main reason is that Cusco is on a holiday, so you can enjoy shows in the streets like: typical dances, folkloric parades, etc. This is without any additional cost.
You also have the option to see Inti Raymi, one of the most important festivities of the Incas.
But, you will see many tourists, and if you don’t like them much, you can visit Cusco in its low season, which is from November to April, although it rains in Cusco at this time, but something that is spectacular is that the mountains are green.
The only day that can be challenging, is the fifth day, the day we will visit the Rainbow Mountain, which is at an altitude of about 5200 meters above sea level.
Tickets for Machu Picchu can be bought separately, those for Sacred Valley, city tour and Moray can be bought together in a ticket called “Boleto Turistico”.
Tickets to the Maras and Rainbow Mountain salt mines cost 10 soles each one.
