Booking a domestic flight in Peru

A few days ago I booked my domestic flight from Lima to Cuzco, and suddenly it dawned on me that I shortly will be in the Andes!!

The departure of my South American adventure is approaching quickly. I am not easily affected my travel sickness, but as I planned my stay in Cuzco, I experienced a rare tickling sensation.

I had already Skyped my nephew in Lima, and he recommended two airlines namely TACA Airlines and Star Perù. I checked both, and discovered that TACA had fewer options on budget fare, whereas Star Perù could offer three daily departures on budget class.
I booked a departure from Jorge Chavez International Airport leaving 10.30 AM arriving Lima 10.40. Cost? USD 240 for a roundtrip ticket included taxes. So soon I will see the same view from the airline window as shown on YouTube above.
We booked a suite at Terra Viva Saphi Cuzco for three nights at a very reasonable cost! The days spent in this Andean city will probably be the most memorable during our tour, as we will expore the former Inca capital as well as Macchu Picchu and the Sacred Valley.
