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.

Insider's View

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 JW Marriott El Convento Cusco is located a few blocks from Cuzco's main square and surrounded by the city's top historical attractions. It offers contemporary guest rooms, modern amenities and excellent service with a fantastic central location.

The JW Marriott El Convento Cusco was built over the 16th Century colonial Convent of San Agustin  which was declared a national cultural heritage site by the Peruvian Government. 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. Spend an afternoon wandering the grounds, exploring their two exhibition halls showcasing Peruvian artifacts and embarking on one of the daily tours of the San Agustín Convent. Enjoy a signature pisco sour at the Qespi Bar or visit the Pirqa Restaurant for one of Cuzco's finest dining experiences. Located just steps away from the historic Plaza de Armas, the hotel offers a superb location from which to explore the city and beyond.
