Where I stayed
The Royal Inca II

Cuzco was the capital of the Inca Empire and no serves as a tourist town and starting point for the Inca Trail and Sacred Valley. The town is full of hikers preparing for the long hike ahead or those that are recovering from the Inca Trail. MC and I used Cuzco for exactly this purpose.

The city sits at 11,000ft and offers a glimpse into the past with every step. When the Spanish arrived in the 1500's they began building the city on top of the original Inca foundations. To this day you can walk the streets of San Blas and touch original Inca walls.

MC and I spent our time relaxing, recovering and enjoying what the city has to offer. Besides organizing our Sacred Valley tour, rafting tour and preparing for the trail we managed to indulge in some of Peru's finest Pisco sours and 2$ beers.

Enjoy the photos :)
