To Cuzco from Miami via Colombia


Able to do a mini tour of my home country Colombia and visit Peru. In this visit to Macchu Picchu I have a debate of whether to purchase tickets in advanced for flight between Lima an Cuzco. The flight would be July 8 (Monday) returning July 13 (Saturday).

The dilemma comes due to the amount of air fare. Booking now through Expedia adding this flight is about $200 dollars. I am worried about the non Peruvian fee of about $200. I am pretty sure the price from Expedia is for locals as other fair are in the $400 dollar range. Or should I just book the flight once in Lima? I plan on arriving at Lima at 725 am.

The problem with the Bus to Cuzco is the time it takes plus a bit dangerous considering its rainy season. Any other advice would be great. Here is a copy of flight plans

Book ahead direct with the airline, not with Expedia. Then you do not have to worry about getting the wrong fare.

July is the dry season. However since you are short on time, I agree with #1 recommendation.
