          We are traveling from California and arriving in Cuzco on 13 September. We will be staying three nights with Amaru Hostel, departing on 16 September. We are then trekking on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and staying over one night in Agua Calientes. Is it possible to leave some of our luggage in a secured area at Amaru Hostel until we return on 20 September? If this is possible, is there a fee and if so, what is that fee? Thank you in advance.
