Machu Picchu Pueblo
Close to the train station, this rustic-style hotel is surrounded by gardens, both private and those that make up the Machu Picchu Historical Sanctuary. The natural world is a focus, and wildlife, orchid and bird watching tours are available. Watch butterflies from your private terrace or take a dip in the fresh water pool.
One of the most famous sites in the world, the lost city of the Incas draws tourists from all over the world. A four-hour train journey from Cusco (or a stiff trek), there are 12 acres of terraces, staircases and temples to explore. See the Temple of the Sun and Intihuatana, one of the holiest spots in Inca history.
