An October 1998 trip
to Cusco by IWW639
Quote: The Inca Trail, one of many trails used by indiginous people for thousands of years, is the most popular hiking destination in Peru. It is not for everyone. If you don't have three or four days or aren't in moderately good health, take the train.

I made sure that the flight was included since the price was so low. If I had paid in the States, the price I paid wouldn't have covered the flight. I also made sure that my reservation on the flight would be confirmed for me. It's not a bad idea to do this yourself too, but I would be coming straight from the Inca Trail.
I also found that I had extra time by doing this, three days. So I paid for two extra nights at the lodge so I could explore independently.
For more about this leg of my trip see my journal on Puerto Maldonado.
