New Year’s Eve is one of the best times to celebrate, and Peru is the perfect destination to do so. And if we talk about celebration, Cusco is one of the favourite cities to leave behind the bad vibes and open your arms to the year that has just begun. The Imperial City is attractive for many reasons: its history, its traditions and, above all, its mystique, the one known as an ‘energy boost’ that creates a special connection with nature. Our New Year's program in Cusco exploits each of these aspects, transforming your trip into a unique and unforgettable experience. Walk through the artisan neighbourhood of San Blas to see the artistic side of the city; enter to the heart of the Sacred Valley of the Incas; recharge energies in Machu Picchu and receive the New Year as a local in the Main Square, between fireworks and music. Let yourself be carried away by the wonders of Cusco and live a different New Year. See the full itinerary below.
Cusco: The ancient Inca capital is a mixture of pre-Columbian ruins and Spanish colonial architecture.
Coricancha: One of the most famous, revered and respected temples in the city of Cusco, the Convent of Santo Domingo was built on top of this Inca temple.
