Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Cuzco’s location and altitude result in only two seasons: rainy and dry. The rainy season typically lasts from November to March, with the heaviest rains arriving in January and February. The best time to visit Cuzco and the surrounding area is during April-October. Though daytime temperatures rest in the mid-to upper 60s throughout the year, the city sees fewer rain showers during its winter months. Bring warm clothing as night-time temperatures dip into the low 30s and 40s due to the altitude.

Be brave and book one of their signature under-ground rooms. Instead of opening the curtains to natural light, you will find an originally built Incan wall right outside your window.

Book a spa appointment at Aranwa where you can experience traditional Andean healing rituals like coca leaf reading or cleansing and purification ritual.

The Convent has been carefully restored and the archaeological remains from the Pre-Inca, Inca, Colonial, Republican and Contemporary periods can be observed giving the hotel a unique character and atmosphere. Some of the guest rooms even feature views directly onto the old Inca walls.

There are 153 luxury guest rooms and suites which feature contemporary furnishings, marble bathrooms  and plush bedding, looking out onto the Inca walls or enjoying views over the courtyard or Cuzco's rooftops.
