Cusco is the archaeological capital of the Americas and the oldest continuously inhabited city on the continent. Its legacy as the seat of the Inca Empire is readily apparent. Many of the city streets are lined with original stone walls and crowded with Quechua-speaking descendants of the Incas.
The word Cusco is the Spanish spelling of the Quechua word Qosqo. According to Inca mythology, when Manco Capac, the first Inca emperor saw the lush Sacred Valley, he struck a staff into the ground and declared the spot Qosqo which means “navel of the universe.”
Cusco is a vibrant city with plenty to do and see during your spare time. Spend the days wandering around the museums, churches, art galleries and markets. At night time why not find one of the free salsa lessons held in one of the many clubs. Food is excellent and there are an array of coffee shops and bars to explore. Cusco is sure to stimulate all of your senses.
