From lush jungle to coastal desert, and the towering peaks of the Andes that lie in-between, Peru's breathtaking landscapes are as diverse as the people that come from around the world to see them. No wonder this was one of the centre points of the ancient Inca kingdom. We are going to live one month in the mountains, a train ride away from Machu Picchu, ancient ruins, the jungle and a beautiful city to explore, colive and cowork in. This is going to be our second time staying in Cusco - check out the fantastic video our members, Alex Nerney and Dale McManus, created of our trip to Peru in 2017:
Experience Cusco with the Tribe
Take on Cusco with the Tribe and discover a new side to Peru. Open your mind to the cocreated community experiences, adventures, and classic WiFi Tribe moments that'll make our time here one of a kind.
Find a way to Machu Picchu
You don’t need convincing to drop by the Inca ruins of Machu Picchu. A trek along an ancient path between soaring mountains to get to a secret city – the Inca Trail is the stuff of travel legends. But you are probably bewildered by the many ways to get there. Last time a group of us really enjoyed hiking the Inca Trail. This unforgettable four-day walk is one of the world's greatest, using stone Inca stairways to pass deserted villages and fields terraced onto sheer Andean slopes. Not an easy one to hike, but so worth it!
Cruise over dunes and chase sunsets
Found amongst the rolling sand dunes of Peru is the little settlement of Huacachina, which is centered around an oasis and towering palm trees. It is a hot spot for those who want to try out sandboarding or dune buggy riding and it’s always one of our favorite weekend trips.
Discover another side of Cusco
This colorful city offers an array of ancient cultures juxtaposed against modern life – Spanish colonial homes built on top of Inca stone walls, local Quechua culture alongside modern attractions, and nightlife. This is the place to try it all.
From roasted guinea pig to the world's most pungent potatoes, Peru's cuisine isn't for the faint of heart – but fortune favors the brave. Over the last few years, Peru has become something of a foodie destination. Young chefs are creating some of the most exciting – and tasty – dishes on the planet and you can have it all, together with fast WiFi while overlooking your new home town.
Hike and climb every mountain
Last but not least, marvel at the swirling red, brown, pink, white and green swirls of Vinicunca, also known as Rainbow Mountain. It's located south-east of Cusco in the Cordillera Vilcanota range, and you can easily do it as a day trip. These multicoloured, striped formations might look more like a pack of Fruit Stripe than a mountain, but we assure you, they’re very much a real destination.
Our Home in Cusco
Our coliving home is a boutique hotel in the prime location of the Cusco City Centre. We're 300m from the Cusco Main Square and close to many cafes and restaurants.
The property is a mix of traditional decor with modern amenities. It has an indoor courtyard and a communal kitchen, dining area, and living room to cowork together and unwind at the end of the day.
Most bedrooms have work tables and there are portable heaters available for chillier nights.
Good to Know
The hot water might not flow as consistently as you're used when in Latin America. It's worth showering during off-hours to better distribute it throughout the day.
Cusco is over 3000m above sea level and altitude sickness affects many people for their first days in Peru. Try to take it easy when we arrive, our bodies will acclimatize.
When the sun sets, the climate can get chilly quickly. Remember to pack layers or plan to buy an alpaca jumper or two in town.

Closest airport: Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport (CUZ)
The airport is about a 20 minute drive to the city center of Cusco. There is no bus service directly to or from Cusco Airport itself and the centre of Cusco. However, Cusco is serviced by a network of privately owned mini buses known as Combis, fares are 0.80 (PEN).
Taxis are by far the most popular mode of transportation for people to and from from the airport. On arrival at you will find an abundance of taxi drivers offering their services. The price of a taxi from the airport to the historic center of Cusco is around 10 – 15 soles (US$ 3.50 – 5.00) for the 20 minute journey.
In the Chapter's Slack channel before arrival, members often coordinate transportation to our homes together. You'll receive our address 4 weeks from the Chapter's start date.
