What recommendations would you give us if it is our first time traveling to Cusco?

Definitely one of the most important things to do before traveling to Cusco for the first time is to check how the weather forecast will be during your stay, Cusco can be a very cold city, like very sunny during the day, so You have to be prepared for everything.

The second thing is definitely to try to do not very demanding activities the first day, to get acclimatized and get used to the altitude, if not. We advise you to drink coca tea, drink plenty of liquids and also eat as lightly as possible (digestion here is usually a little slower than normal).
