I will be in Cusco around January 2nd and I plan to go to Machu Picchu. Any advice on anyone who has already gone? Should I purchase my flight from Lima to Cusco early or is it safe to wait? Also on purchasing day pass into Machu Picchu, I don’t know the exact date so I’m afraid of purchasing the pass and not being able to use it that day but also afraid I may miss the opportunity to go if they are sold out. Any advice? Also opem to meet up wth anyone who is also travelling there around that time!
