Wondering where to go in Cusco? With so many fantastic day trips from the Peruvian city, it’s tough deciding what you want. We have done all of this work for you by outlining our favorite things and some amazing tours that can help get those ideas rolling!
A lot goes down on a typical journey through Latin America – especially when exploring new places like Lima and Nazca Lines Tour Package or Arequipa; but did anyone really expect otherwise? The buses might be crowded as heck, people will shout at each other over nothing…but sometimes good stuff happens too: a friendly conversation here between two strangers who just met.

Cusco is a hidden gem, usually only discovered by those who venture beyond the city limits. This means that there are plenty more attractions to explore in this ancient Andean capital! To make sure you don’t get bored with your trip and end up doing nothing but sightseeing all day long while waiting for nightfall (which won’t happen because it gets dark so fast), I recommend setting aside some time every morning before hitting any museums or walking around historic sites like temples where locals go pray during sunset – which happens about 3 hours earlier than what most travelers expect due south-southwest

We’ve curated a list of the best day trips from Cusco to help you decide which is right for your own adventure, alongside essential information and inspiration on how to plan it.


Vinicunca Colorful Rainbow Mountain

The Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain is one of the most magnificent attractions in all of Peru. The spell-bounding geological site, so-called for its seemingly endless rows of golden and turquoise sediments that make up this majestic pattern high atop an Andean mountainside about three hours drive southeast from downtown Cusco – accessible only by foot–it’s a full-day trip worth every step!


City Tour Cusco, Walking Tours, San Pedro Market, etc.

With Cusco being one of the most fascinating destinations in Peru and throughout all of South America, it’s no wonder that there are so many day trips to take from this incredible city. While you can’t go wrong with visiting Machu Picchu on your list if only for its proximity to where we live here at The World Tourist Attraction.  We recommend exploring some other areas as well!

We have compiled a few highly suggested itineraries just waiting around match each other’s companion adventures into nature – whether they be hiking through mountain trails or enjoying views over vast ocean scenery; these locations will leave lasting impressions


Full Day Sacred Valley Pisaq, Ollantaytambo, Chinchero

The valley of the Incas is an otherworldly, beautiful place that you must see to believe. It’s carved by a river and filled with stunning mountain views as it flows between two ranges in Cusco Peru – The Vilcanota Mountain Range (where many historic archeological sites can be found)
A day trip from Cusco will take your breath away when we arrive at this ridiculously photogenic sacred land of the Incas!


Is known for its famous Sunday market and is one of the cheapest places to buy hand-made handicrafts in the region. It has all sorts of colorfully-weaved alpaca scarves, sweaters and clothing, shiny trinkets, country magnets, and more.


Moray circular Terraces & Salt Pond Maras Tour

Inca Laboratory

Maras, Moray, and Chinchero- Did you know that Peru has over 4000 types of potatoes? This is partly due to the agricultural experiments done during the Inca civilization, in what is known as ‘agricultural laboratories’.

Moray is the most famous of these ‘laboratories. Perfect concentric circle terraces carved into a natural depression in the earth. Each of these terrace levels simulates a different altitude in the region, with different temperatures at every level.

The different microclimate

At every altitude produced different varieties of potatoes and corn and allowed the Inca to expand their crop empire. The Moray rice terrace is a true display of Inca engineering genius.

A visit to Moray is usually accompanied by a visit to the Maras Salt Mine. The Maras Salt Mine is a series of cascading salt pools strategically tucked into the hills. These salt pools form a network of ancient salt deposits, with saltwater that comes from a subterranean natural spring in the Andes mountains.

In TLPA we have Cusco Day Tours for any traveler who wants to experience real travel to Cusco and Peru.


Chinchero Nature Walk with Llamas & Alpacas

Chinchero Nature Walk With Llamas And Alpacas. You could just get a Hotel in Cusco on your next trip to Peru, or you could rent an Airbnb in Chinchero native Quechua Village and get your Chichero tour package that will give you the experience of a lifetime. When you usually go on a vacation, you are there to see sights. You want to see the beauty of the place to where you have traveled. Unfortunately, that’s sightseeing, not a vacation.

A vacation should be more than about what you see; it should be about having an experience. At Chinchero Village, you will get a memorable experience that will cause people to be jealous of your vacation Tour in Peru.

Things to Do in Cusco

Small and easy to navigate, the city of Cusco is a destination for adventurers. It’s jam-packed with a fascinating history of the Inca Empire and Spanish conquest that has been amazingly well preserved and restored.

When to visit?

The summer is the best time to visit for the climate, which also makes it peak tourist season. To avoid the crowds, early fall could be nice. Anytime after November and before April, however, is not recommended—Cusco’s rainy season could ruin your sightseeing.

How to get there?

Fly into Cusco’s Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport, located in Cusco.

Should I Worry About Elevation?

It is advised to spend at least 3 days in Cusco to acclimate to the high elevation before heading out on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, especially if arriving from sea level.

How many days to visit Cusco?

Are you Planning to Visit Cusco City?
Give yourself at least five days for a trip to Cusco the first couple to adjust to the elevation and navigate the city, the last few to make it to the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu.
Umantay Lake

The Humantay Lake is a hidden treasure in the Inca Trail and this full-day guided tour will show you everything there is to see. The hike alone can be challenging but with all of your travel included on arrival, plus breakfast and lunch as well—it's impossible not to have an amazing time!

1D Train Tour


Machu Picchu is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that's been attracting visitors since it was first discovered by the Spanish over 500 years ago. If you want an authentic experience, book your Train ticket in advance and choose between economical trains or modern coaches; either way, there will be nothing else like this train journey again!


1 Day Palcoyo Rainbow Mountain

Palcoyo is an easier hike than the original rainbow mountain. Instead of one colored mountain in Vinicunca, you will see up to 5 different colors when on Palcoyo tour! You don't have to wake up at 3 am for this attraction like most other tourists do; instead, we go during off-peak times so it's less crowded too 🙂
