See Machu Picchu in June! $422+ Round Trip Biz Class Tickets

By  | 

Via Secret Flying and The Flight Deal, Avianca business class tickets to Peru from various US cities are pricing at $406-$600 for travel in June. Peru isn’t high on my travel wish list, but Machu Picchu is.

And with this deal, you can fly from Chicago, Houston, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, and DC to Cusco, Peru in business class at the same price as an economy ticket.

Based on a quick glance at Google Flights, dates are limited in some cities, but wide open from Washington, DC. But book this morning, this deal is likely to disappear quickly!google flights machu picchu biz class

How long do you need to see Machu Picchu?
I’ve never been but I’ve been doing a lot of research this morning instead of getting ready for work. There are daily trains from Cusco to Machu Pichu, which means it can be done in a day and doesn’t require any major hiking or conditioning.

The forums suggest staying overnight in the local town though to maximize your time at the ruins and catch the sunrise. So, if you can take the time, maybe plan for 2-3 days in Peru. If you have limited vacation time and only want to pop up the mountain and back, you can probably get by with just one night, depending on your flight schedule.

And if you really want to go all out, for $400 each way you can take the Belmond Hiram Bingham train which features luxurious seats, VIP station lounges, in-train shows and gourmet meals plus a guided tour of the ruins.

    Stay overnight in the Sacred Valley rather than trying to do it in a day trip from Cusco. And you could add on some time in Arequipa or another, non-Lima place.
