HOW TO PLAN A LUXURY TRAVEL TO MACHU PICCHU
To plan a luxury trip, it is a condition to investigate your destination and the prices of the different services that you will enjoy. In this way, you can have a general idea of expenses and prices. It is also a good idea if you want to compare the price-quality of the different tour operators or basic services. The prices of the different luxury travel packages may also vary from the season in which you travel.
HOW TO GET THERE
There are several ways to get to the coveted archaeological complex. Normally, those who want to experience a Machu Picchu luxury tour have to go first to the Imperial City. Cusco is the destination of choice for many travelers who want to know the Inca citadel. You can travel by plane to Cusco from most points in the Andean Country. It is ideal to arrive and take a short tour of the city, which has a lot to show and offer, from a very particular mestizo architecture to narrow streets full of culture and tradition.
To get to Machu Picchu, there are two main ways: by train or by a hiking route. For those eager for adventure and challenges, the Inca Trail is an excellent option to experience how the ancient Incas walked towards the citadel. Or if you want to reserve your energy to visit Machu Picchu, you can travel by train. Both options are amazing and full of beautiful landscapes.
WHERE TO STAY
Depending on your itinerary, you can stay for the night in Cusco, the Sacred Valley or Aguas Calientes. All these destinations have their magic and touch. These 3 previously formed the heart of the majestic Inca Empire. Those who enjoy luxury travel to Machu Picchu usually choose the Sacred Valley and Aguas Calientes as their main destination. They are much closer to the archaeological complex and are ideal for those who want to save time.
Cusco has incredible options in terms of luxury hotels. But there is also the option of staying in the Sacred Valley, which is located at a lower altitude than Cusco. There, you will find many luxury all-inclusive lodgings and you can acclimatize better than in the Imperial City. If you want to plan a luxury vacation, Sacred Valley is an excellent option.
BEST TIME TO VISIT
If you already have experienced traveling to other destinations, you will surely know that during the low tourist season prices tend to drop. And it is possible to save on luxury adventure travel by going during this time. The main disadvantage is that the low season coincides with the rainy season. Similarly, the rains occur mostly in the afternoon.
The prices of tickets to museums and archaeological ruins tend to stay the same throughout the year, but accommodations, food, and basic services do drop in price. Traveling in high season is not bad either, you will simply have to book everything in advance since everything usually runs out before time.
THE INCA TRAIL AND ALTERNATIVE ROUTES
To complement your luxury travel to Machu Picchu, you can do some recognized hiking routes. You have the Inca Trail, Huayna Picchu Mountain, and Machu Picchu mountain. These three hikes are incredible and offer amazing views of the citadel.
All these hikes have their ticket next to the entrance to Machu Picchu. So, if you want to travel these ancient routes, it is better to book your tickets now. Like the entrances to Machu Picchu, these sell out very quickly.
In short, if you want to organize a luxury trip to Machu Picchu, it is a matter of good organization.
