extra night in machu picchu?

My friend and I arrive Cusco on Mon. 12/19 and stay 2 nights. We start the inca express trail on Wed. morning and most likely will end up at the Machu Picchu Inn(through the tour).

We depart Cusco on Friday to leave for Chile and are wondering what to do on Thursday night? Should we come back to Cusco or stay another night in Machu Picchu (maybe the Pueblo hotel?) Is it hard to get to the airport from Machu Picchu...our flight leaves at 11am on Friday.

I would advise returning to Cusco on the Thursday. Firstly because there will be more to do there, but more importantly you will find it difficult to get to Cusco airport for a flight leaving at 11am on Friday.

You HAVE to get back to Cusco. Their is NO way you can get on the train (4 hr ride to Cusco) and get to the airport on time to catch yr flight.
