  • There are myths or opinions about the price of handicrafts in Cusco or Aguas Calientes, the truth does not warrant discussion are very colorful and beautiful, there are all the prices on both sites. The attention is very good and helpful in the two places, it is advisable to ask before you buy if they work with credit cards, since once elected objects not found with that... "just of the card not working"... trick to cash out.

  • A good option for buying souvenirs. You can always negotiate, accept real without major difficulties, including card.

  • Fairly large craft fair located in the center of Aguas Calientes. There are many jobs with a variety of things. You must haggle prices, since most are inflated with gringo prices.
