For many travelers in Peru, Cusco, the old Inca Town, is a highlight of their trips.
Cusco is a unique destination, one of the travelers hubs from South America yet still authentic and picturesque. Here at Dos Manos we are proud to be operating from ‘the navel of the world’, from our offices with a great view over the city of Cusco.
One of our bloggers, Yvette Ruyters, wrote this great definition of what Cusco is like.
You know you are in Cusco when…
- …you see gringos walking around in Alpaca sweaters, hats and gloves.
Yes, Cusco can be a bit chilly at times. You will definitely need some warm clothes. No problem if you forgot to bring some from home, you can buy plenty in Cusco! There are many shops that sell real or fake Alpaca items. Don’t worry that you might look a bit silly. Most backpackers here go crazy on the affordable sweaters, hats and gloves.
