Taxis in Cusco are very cheap. To travel anywhere in Cusco, a taxi costs between 3-4 soles ($1.00-1.50 USD). After 10 pm a taxi costs 4 soles (about $1.50 USD). Taxis are everywhere in Cusco and it is very easy to find one. They are generally safe but in order to be sure, always check to see if the Taxi has an authorized taxi sticker which is on the windshield and it will also have a TAXI sticker that is black writing in a white circle. Use your judgement when getting into a cab and hand the driver the money sometime during the ride. If you use common sense when riding taxis you will be fine.
