Ask The Expert
Can you suggest things to do in Cusco for our free day? How is the traffic? Does Cusco have bike lanes if we wanted to bike a half day?
I suggest visiting the Mercado San Pedro for some really colorful photo opportunities and market-mayhem! The market has everything from textiles to produce – be mindful that the butcher’s section can be quite stomach churning if you’re not used to bloody raw meat!
The traffic can be quite hectic in Cusco – the few road rules that do exist are ignored by all and sundry! I really do not recommend cycling in the colonial center, however there are some great day trips available like:
Cusco Ruins – Cusco Ruins by Bike – Horse ride to Cusco Ruins – Rafting Chuqicahuana - Maras – Moray
Canoe Piñi pampa – Cusco Ruins & Countryside Horse riding among others.

How do the Radisson Hotel Decapolis Miraflores and Crowne Plaza Hotels in Lima compare in terms of proximity to site seeing , safety and comfort to the Sheraton Hotel in Lima?
Radisson & Crown Hotels are located in Miraflores neighbourhood.
The Sheraton is located in Lima’s historic center, between Miraflores and the Airport.
Comfort: All Hotels are 4* and 5* so they are are all good!
Safety: Lima is a large city where you should take the necessary precautions that you would take in any large city. It is recommended that you keep your valuables in the safe in your hotel.
Miraflores is a very pleasant neighbourhood – nicer that the colonial district. I would recommend Miraflores: it’s closer to the sea, cafes, shopping areas, Parque Kennedy, restaurants and bars.
