Holy Week difficult to travel in Peru?

Hi all,

We've been planning a trip to Peru starting in late March (first time!) and just realized it falls right on the Holy Week, which from some cursory googling sounds like could become quite painful to find hotels, get buses, etc. without advanced reservations. Although I acknowledge would be neat to see some of the celebrations we usually just wing it in country staying at each place until we're ready to go so I'm wondering if we'd be wiser moving the trip up a few weeks to avoid it since…

Cusco-Sacred Valley-Picchu

Hey there!

Myself and three other intrepid college students from NJ/NY will be in Peru this coming January. We are having some trouble figuring out our plans for the Sacred Valley/Cusco area and would love any insight from those who know the area or have visited before (reading other columns and articles can only be so helpful). We'll be flying to Cusco on the 12th. Our plan was to spend that day exploring the city, and then to move on the day following to Ollantaytambo to see some of the…
