#4 of 24 in Shopping in Cusco
Neighborhood Shopping
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.

Where to stay in Cusco

One of Peru's most visited cities, Cusco boasts lodgings suitable for every traveler's needs. Scores of hotels ensure plenty of comfortable rooms for tourists coming to explore the nearby archeological sites. Despite the abundance of hotels, room rates remain among the highest in the country, especially during peak season (June to mid-September). Budget-conscious visitors can choose from a range of hostels and small family-run hotels, many located in quiet streets just a walk away from the town's central area.
