Retreats in Cusco: You can book retreats at the agencies around the Plaza de Armas. These retreats will typically combine a tour to sacred sites with plant medicine ceremonies and other spiritual practices. When looking for a tour, make sure that the number of participants is small and that the facilitators are honest about what they are doing. While in Cusco, you might head toward the more artistic neighbourhood of San Blas where you’ll find yoga studios and nice coffee shops like Jack’s Café. About Cusco: Cusco is the largest centre in the vicinity of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, the region in which Machu Picchu is located. From Cusco, you can enter the Sacred Valley in under an hour by taxi or in a collectivo, an form of informal shared transportation. The fortified borders of Cusco were intended to resemble the shape of a puma. While the streets and squares of the city have since expanded beyond the original settlement, its architectural treasures remain in excellent shape today - a testament to the impressively engineered stonework of Incan architecture. The religious festivals and carnivals which take place in Cusco are renowned for dancers crowding the streets clad in vibrantly colourful costumes.
