Where to Celebrate Halloween in Cusco
Traveling in Peru these days? If so you might want to know what are the best places to celebrate Halloween.

On 31 of October also the Día de la Música Criolla will be celebrated, so more traditional Cusqueños give preference to that celebration.
The Halloween festivities in Cusco start at least a week before the actual holiday, when children start dressing up and going out in their costumes.
