My husband has been wanting to go to Machu Picchu for awhile and we are excited to be planning a trip for 2012 (most likely September).
We have the option of using my mom's timeshare in Cusco for 7 days. This would be free to us (as she won't be using it otherwise and would give it to us as a gift) but I'm getting a nagging feeling that we may be missing out by not staying in other cities.
What do you all think about this? My husband lived in Mexico as a child and is fluent in Spanish, so we would have no problem communicating with others, getting taxis, etc for day trips.
I just started the planning process but would love an educated opinion on this.
