How to save cash in Cusco (for Canadian Traveller magazine)


Saving money when you travel isn’t just good for you, it can be good for the local economy too.

My How to save cash in Cusco article, for the winter 2015-16 print edition of Canadian Traveller, explains why.

I share tips to help you avoid paying sky-high prices in the sky-high city of Cusco, Peru, including directions to a secret labyrinth-like ruin that doesn’t require an entrance ticket, and the best place to go for cheap and delicious snacks and great souvenirs.

There’s a really cute photo of an alpaca too.

Going to Peru? Then you also need to know how to see Machu Picchu without a tour and how to avoid getting altitude sickness. Links to all my Peru writing is on the Peru destination page.

  1. An excellent article, Johanna, which should make the trip to Manchu Pichu so much easier for all those who go.
