Health & Precautions

You should maintain a light diet before arriving in Cusco and until you get used to the height, which is normally by the end of the first day. Remember to stay hydrated and consume drinks with electrolytes (or infusions like mint or coca) for long walks or trekking routes. We suggest measuring alcohol consumption.

It is important to wear sunscreen as radiation is very high in the Andes. We also highly recommend wearing insect repellent, especially if you have allergies to insect bites when visiting Machu Picchu.

 

Gastronomy

Traditional cooking techniques are what characterize Cusco’s gastronomy. Regional ingredients such as potatoes, quinoa and various types of meat are the base for famous dishes like Cuy Chactado, Pachamanca and Chairo soup.
