Sacsayhuaman Reviews & Ratings

Sacsayhuaman
  • I arrive in Cusco at l2:00 and must be at the airport at 4:00. Do I have time to see Sacsayhuaman. How many miles is it from airport

    • I think you have enough time on your hands to visit Sacsayhuaman as the distance between the airport and this historic site is hardly 4 and a half miles according to online maps and almost all the Sacsayhuaman Sacsayhuaman take around 3 hours to complete, including transportation time. But, I would suggest confirming it before planning your itinerary. And do not forget to carry a water bottle as the climb here steep and takes at least half an hour to complete.
