Exchanging US$ in Cusco Airport

Exchanging US$ in Cusco Airport

Can anyone shed some light on my inquiry?

I am flying from Mexico - Bogota - Cusco next week. I have US$ with me and I need some recommendations on where to exchange them in Cusco when I land preferably just in the vicinity of airport. My Spanish is limited.

As an additional question, how much money would be enough for a 1 week trip in Cusco touring around Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu?

Thanks in advance.

Airports are usually the worst place to exchange money. you will get bad rates.

You can find exchange in Cusco center in Avenida El sol, just off the Main Square. And many places around Cusco center.

You can pay your taxi driver is US$ to take you there first. A taxi ride to Cusco center should cost $5.00 dollars.

How much money for a week? very difficult questions to answer.

Thanks Pa0I0. I will head directly to Ollantaytambo instead. I am not staying within Cusco yet upon arrival.

So taxis are accepting dollars then. Interesting.
