When arriving at Cusco it is always recommended to drink a tea made by Coca leaves. It will help with altitude sickness, but if the symptoms don´t go away, there are also different kinds of pills you can buy.
Don´t forget that Cusco is at 3.230 meters above sea level and we only have two seasons: rainy season (September – April) and dry season (May – August)
The weather during the morings is warm, but in the shade it is cold and at night it might even freeze.
However, there are more temperate regions like the Sacred Valley, which is at a 2.800 meters above sea level. Because it is a Valley it is warm during the dry season and it is cold during the rainy season with a few sunny days.
According to the climate, it is recommended to wear light clothes in the mornings and to not forget sunblock and hats; while it is necessary to not forget coats or jackats for the nighttime or even bring rainjackets.
