Avenida El Sol, Cusco
(3.3/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Take a stroll down Avenida El Sol, a busy thoroughfare lined with stores, services, and entertainment. Local street artists turned many of the area's walls into artworks, adding much to the atmosphere of this largely commercial district. You'll find plenty of tour operator offices here, banks, and shops selling everything from local handicrafts to electronics, along with market stalls offering fresh produce and trinkets. Take a break at a bar or restaurant, or pick up a snack from one of the street food vendors. Put Avenida El Sol and other Cusco attractions into our Cusco vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Main street of the Centre, with many currency exchange, to exchange currency, always very busy, just the traffic is intense, I recommend walking, right next to the cultural center and Plaza de armas, there's plenty of trade next.

  • Avenida indicated for who wants to trade dollars. Several options with the best currency exchange rates. There you can also buy the Boleto Turístico that gives access to various archaeological sites and museums.
