Cuzco is small enough to walk around, although you will probably need to catch a bus or taxi to the bus station, Sacsayhuamán or airport. Beware about walking around at night alone and /or drunk, robberies have often been reported contact us to send our driver.
Don`t forget to Visit The Four Archaeological Ruins Nearby. We are close to the amazing Inca Sacsayhuamán (sometimes called Saqsaywaman and pronounced "Sexy Woman") ruins high above Cuzco. It is a steep climb from the Plaza de Armas up Plateros street which changes to Saphi. Look for the long staircase on the right, follow the paved curvy road up to the next cobblestone pedestrian path and follow this climb past the first closed control point to the second control. No need to take a cab if you can handle it. But, be careful, as robberies have been reported in mornings and evenings. There is a charge to explore the ruins at the second control or present your turistic ticket.
This is part of Sacsayhuaman .- In order to arrive to Saqsayhuaman you can take any City Tour of any travel agency (almost all of them offer this kind of service ); from the Main Square to Saqsayguaman Ruins, it will take you just 15 minutes by bus, you can also reach Sacsayhuaman by foot climbing the step street of Resbalosa, turn right past the church of San Cristobal and continue to a hairpin bend in the road. Here, you’ll join the old Inca road between Cusco and Sacsayhuaman to the top and left. The climb is steep and it takes 30 minutes approximately from the Main Square to the ruins; you can also arrive by private transportation or by taxi
Puka Pucara .-Located 8 kilometers from Cusco and within the archaeological park of Saqsaywaman we find this archaeological site on a small rocky hill in which we can see a series of rectangular formations. Enclosed by a wall and platforms for containment, we can see a fortification with warehouses, rooms, water springs, waterways and aqueducts. Like the large architectonic structures, the presence of a succession of water springs.
Tambomachay .- Located 1 kilometer from the Puca Pucara site (9 kilometers from Cusco), this site has 3 platform levels built with beautifully finished stone. This site is known by tradition as the Baños de la Ñusta (the baths of the princess). The main feature of this monument is the existence of two crystalline water springs that flow through a sluice of carved stones all year round. About 500 meters away from the springs above one of the levels we find a grotto which is where the name Tambomachay came from. It is probable that this site was a temple dedicated to the worship of water. From this ravine starts a network of waterways used for irrigation of the peasant's terraces even today as we find that in August of every year, the inhabitants of the area continue to make offerings to the water springs. It should be emphasized that its architecture is finely worked especially in the vaulted niches of limestone the size of a human being.
