Machu Picchu ©
A symbol of the Incan civilization, the abandoned city of Machu Picchu represents a must-see on a Peru vacation.
Venture out of the city with trips to Ollantaytambo (Choco Museo & Archaeological Park Ollantaytambo), Maras (Moray & Salinas de Maras) and Zipline (in Santa Teresa). There's still lots to do: explore the ancient world of Santuario Historico de Machu Picchu, witness a stunning natural landmark at Hot Springs (Aguas Calientes), steep yourself in history at Choquequirao Archeological Park, and look for all kinds of wild species at Los Jardines de Mandor.

If you are flying in from Mexico, the closest major airport is Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
